    Pros

    Get real responsibility.
    Openness to work on various projects.
    Cool work culture with games room.
    If you are in the engineering teams you will get to play with cool tech, build servers, Set up gaming demos, work on the latest Intel platforms.
    I had the opportunity to work on HPC and cloud platforms.

    Cons

    Its really comes down to your mindset, if you want to learn there is a lot of opportunities. However, no one will force you. As an Intern If you want things done, you will need to ask.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People who like the classic big business style of working will thrive
    Pay and benefits are decent, but saw them decline during my tenure
    There are career opportunities for those willing to work extremely hard
    For those who like domestic and international business travel, you will be given opportunities

    Cons

    The workload is usually huge, and the company culture frowns upon dropping tasks when overburdened
    A great deal of bureaucracy and politics to wade through. Expect to spend a lot of time pandering to your manager's ego if you want to get anything done.
    Speaking out against Intel policy, culture or working style is a quick way to get made redundant.
    Intel are quick to drop employees if they can get cheaper labor in other countries, or by consolidating. The effort to redistribute those impacted is mostly lip service.
    Work-life balance is particularly limited by the fact that HQ in the US usually refuse to talk at mutually convenient times, which means lots of late night and early morning calls.
    Some entry-level roles require regular public holiday working (extra compensation is provided however)

    Advice to Management

    I left Intel because, despite being in my twenties, I was having heart problems due to overwork. I suggest keeping a closer eye on employee wellbeing and think about how that impacts your workforce long term, not just how you can squeeze the most out of them in the here and now.

    Pros

    1. I was given a lot of responsibilities and was allowed to rotate between several teams to get a rounded working experience. More than I thought i'd get as an intern
    2. Most managers and the people I worked with were really nice and supportive when needed
    3. Good pay, what you'd expect from a placement

    Cons

    1. Lots of red-tape at times, some processes seem convoluted
    2. 'Intel lingo' is used a lot, can be alienating when you start
    3. Swindon where the office is located is not the greatest place

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support the development of new interns, very thankful for the experience

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Middle management and upwards has some commercially strong, intelligent managers. Good to work for and great to learn from.

    "Great Place to Work" initiatives are great for staff buy-in and loyalty.

    Generally happy to promote from within.

    Benefits are top-notch.

    Flexibility with working from home etc., is brilliant.

    Cons

    Often difficult to map out a career path although good support offered if you can see your next step.

    Middle and Senior management is great, first-line management made up of some shockingly poor choices.

    Could do with some more rotations to avoid feeling "stuck."

    Advice to Management

    The re-alignment of the Org felt quite a lot like a cost-cutting exercise than a re-organisation, good to bear in mind if it's needed again.

    GPTW works great, keep the funding there.

    Stop cracking down on travel - appreciate it affects the bottom line but it was so key to see our customers and our wider virtual teams. The strength it adds to the bond is unbeatable.

    Encourage a little more working from home - the flexibility is amazing for staff loyalty.

    Pros

    Technology leadership best in the world
    Innovation index high

    Cons

    Complex company fingers in lots of different technologies can be difficult to understand

    Advice to Management

    Look after your people they are your biggest and best asset - Never become complacent and hire the best people - do not just fill a hole


  10. "Chaotic seemingly with a lack of strategic direction. Investing heavily in moonshots while neglecting core business"

    Pros

    The people, the varied work and the collaboration enable good people to shine.
    The benefit package overall is good but not brilliant

    Cons

    The politics and double standards alongside the lack of management support.
    The constant towering threat that your role could easily go to a low cost geography

    Advice to Management

    The politics and double standards are stifling innovation and harming morale. The recent layoffs were handled with the worst levels of empathy probably ever seen in the tech industry. 30year veterans left without so much as a goodbye.
