    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Very smart people & fun to work with.
    Interesting Projects & very varied roles.
    The salary for Graduates is now fantastic, but some employees have been there for 5 years and are only paid 3K more (base salary) because Intel did not increase graduates who came in at lower salaries a few years ago.
    Become a presenting pro.
    Great CV stamp

    Cons

    Employee retention is awful - people leaving due to location is an excuse by management, find a way to stop talent leaving.
    Certain managers have their favorites, they gain rotations and are promoted quickly, it damages not only the managers reputation but what colleagues think of those who are favored.
    US based company - for real progression you need to relocate to the US. You will find collegues with the same role and responsibilities are often paid significantly more if they are US based.

    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
