    Former Employee - Software Developer Intern

    I worked at Intel Corporation as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The compensation is more than competitive, and the benefits are good. Some holidays can be off, and there is a 6 month PAID LEAVE about every 7 years. The cafeterias are a nice bonus, but aren't free.
    I got lucky with my working group, they were fantastic. They looked to build each others skills, and were up for code reviews.

    Cons

    The company always wants to be faster, so part of the job is declining new projects that you can't handle.
    Some groups can be very negative and energy draining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jump on the mobile movement, and plan ahead instead of trying to "move faster".

    Challenging but rewarding work, great work/life balance, high compensation. What can I say...planning to retire here.

    Some bureaucracy that comes with any large company.

    Time to flesh out some of the old timers and to give smart, young, talented people opportunities.

    Former Employee - Senior Program Manager in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    I worked at Intel Corporation as a contractor (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is a great company with a huge potential. They are always seeking to be the best in many different fields. Intel is a locomotive for innovation and for the years ahead. Intel is involved in so many companies and is bringing moocher than processors.

    Cons

    There is too much politics at times, as it is still a top down company. This of course brings a lot of pros for Intel as a leader in manufacturing and in innovation in terms of new product, but also yields a lot of waste of talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more external contractors and consultants to help forge the strategic positioning of Intel in different sectors. This has proven its efficiency and can do it more, specially in Innovation and outside of the US.

    Pros

    Good overall compensation package. The sabbatical keeps employees motivated.

    You're expected to always best your performance year after year. Off-shoring jobs is a very negative business practice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in touch with your subordinates. Know and recognize what people are doing… not just those working on special projects.
