    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, high caliber coworkers, and unique products. This is a one of a kind company with a huge mission and a lot of corporate courage. Super star employees are the norm.

    Cons

    Engineering culture - this could be good or bad, just know what you are getting in to. Heavy bureaucracy in IT. Expectation of an affinity for HW and an EE degree or mathematical bias - other disciplines not really respected. But it IS a HW company.....

    Pros

    Very big company due to which there a large number of different teams doing very different work so you can get exposure to a lot of different things by changing teams within the company, which is also not very difficult.

    Cons

    Salary for H/W guys is less than competition like QComm/ Apple etc

    Pros

    Great company to work for. I really enjoyed working for Intel. The culture is great and the people you work with and interact with are very smart. This company has so many opportunities so you can get on the right career path. Great Benefits.

    Cons

    If you don't challenge yourself you will get board. I saw some underperforms given the pink slip twice in my 2 year career there. So slacking off is not appreciated and underperforming will get you in trouble.

    Make sure capable/less teams are on a project, real hands-on person are visible, we work on product not presentation:-)

    Pros

    Intel develops your skill set with many useful classes and refresh classes every year. The people here are always helpful eventhough they may not work with you. The pay is great!

    Cons

    Intel is a very process oriented company. Eventhough they encourage you to think outside the box and be innovative, at times, this becomes hard to achieve with current process.
