Very much a brain washing company into intel culture. A lot of internal politcs and social climbing within the company. It can be both a good place to work but also very toxic, poeple are always knocking each other down to make themseleves look good. Worklife balance is not bad and the company is fairly felixable. I cant say i love the place nor can i say its really bad eithier. Its a job for a couple of years to get experience then move on not a place to establish a career. The canteen and toilets in the place are absolutely terrible.
Pros
Pays ok
Cons
Politics, negativeity, worst canteen in the world.

Good place to work with good support from team members. Benefits and conditions in work are of a very high standard. Work Life Balance is not enough of a priority here though.

A stressful job in that you had to be always striving for next thing. This is fine when young & eager as we all were but when you know the job well you just want to go in and do a very good job. This wasn’t the culture. More better more & then some more or you don’t survive or progress. That’s fair enough once you’ve accepted it .

Always a slow start to the week and as a contractor there you are treated like a lower class citizen! No job security and no progression. No learning curve just get in a lash pipework in a quick as possible so you they can let you go at end of project

Day to day work is very detail driven as would be expected. This is not suited to everyone. Anything you don't know going in will be taught to you. Anything you did know going in will be re-taught to you the intel way. Some aspects of working in intel can be amazing and the information, technology and knowledge you have to work with is second to none, however, there is also a lot of repetition and documentation to content with. As with any corporation of intels size there is a constant stream of meetings and red tape to contend with, and innovation will either be encouraged or completely snuffed out depending on the departments management culture. Like any work place, there are pro's and con's, if you just make the most of what you can, do your work and go home the pro's should out weight the cons.
Pros
BIK health care package and stock options.
Cons
lack of accountability for well known management culture in some departments

Intel on paper was the ideal position. However, in practice you are pushed to meet commitments but everyone is very quick to push you under a bus to make themselves look good... Especially management
Pros
Time Off
Cons
Long hours

amazing place to work, amazing opportunities to learn and grow fast. Company culture is very positive. Process engineers work on shift hours which are impossible to sustain.

Good people but no options for advancement and unrealistic targets The management is not really very innovative or energetic. It is a good environment with great people but really crazy pressure and targets. Work/Life balance is not the best.
Pros
Salary, Benefits
Cons
Rare options for advancements, unrealistic targets

Very good company for anyone at any stage in their career. One of the biggest companies in the world means there's roles for people of all backgrounds, qualifications, and skill levels. Culture in the company is good - in my experience everyone is very friendly and there are good relationships across different departments.

Great benefits and shift pattern with lots of training opportunities. Work place is stressful and fast paced so being able to consolidate new skills can be difficult to achieve. Direct manager was good to work for, promotion within 2 years and felt like I made a difference but stress could be tiring.
Pros
Great benefits, learning opportunities and good shift pattern
Cons
Great stress

Great company for salary and benefits, but ultimately just a number. Wage discrepancies between the same job level are vast and the shift calander means you never get a full weekend to yourself.
