    I worked at Intel Corporation for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked at Intel as an intern for one year. Pros: - Company Culture, despite being an intern I was treated no differently. - All the staff were friendly and treated the same - Opportunities to get involved in other areas alongside normal job role - Good bonuses and additional options such as shares. - Within the UK, it feels like quite a family culture, most people know each other.

    Cons

    Being a big corporation often decision making could be viewed as slow

    Pros

    Flexible work-life balance, some very smart people to work with.

    Cons

    Feels like re-orgs are never ending and arbitrary. Lack of visibility on strategy and decision making due to its massive size. For the same reason, some low quality coworkers are to be found too, amongst the very good ones.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Most of the reviews are a reflection of a particular business group, leadership or manager. I have worked with 5 different managers from 3 different geographies, so I guess I can rate it well: - Fantastic work culture, very employee-friendly, human, sensitive and responsible. - An amazing pool of talented people, across the world. International exposure is amazing. - If you are a part of a COE (centre of excellence), you would be working on cutting-edge technology. - Ample infrastructure, like dev machines, HW, SW, and lab space (of course on a justifiable basis) - Most of the managers are encouraged not to micro-manage and connect with people well. - Huge office space (In Bangalore at-least), open areas, Gym, multiple cafeterias, good food. - If you are a good performer, you will enjoy a good salary and benefits. - This is far better a place than it feels from outside news and talks about it.

    Cons

    - Very (very) slow in decision making, due to huge beaurocracy levels. It seems impossible to put everyone on the same page. - People on the Technical ladder feel powerless/unheard after a particular level, and its extremely difficult to convey a change to the top levels. - Business decisions related to a product mostly come from top-bottom, and execution teams have very little say. If you have a moron at the top, as an architect, forget about logical work distribution. - Slow growth at higher levels, you are expected to please everyone to move up, without being a threat to anyone. - Too much duplication of work across the world. Many business groups and product teams do the same, what COE does, maintaining their codebase in several different places and tools, causing an absolute waste of time for everyone. Overall, if you have an appetite for aggressive growth, or you want to contribute big in business/product, you might not find this to be an exact match. But if you want a steady and constant growth with very good work-life balance, this is the place for you.
