Life and Benefits at Intel

Life and Benefits at Intel

Our compensation and benefits are more than a competitive salary, health care benefits, and a generous bonus structure including both annual performance bonuses and quarterly profit bonuses. Here’s what real people had to say when asked about what they find special about the benefits offered to employees at Intel* and their life at Intel.

“The benefits that are particularly important to me are the Intel Stock Purchase Program (SPP) and the Extended Leave Program (ELP). Both of them are free decisions of the employee. The SPP allows an employee to invest a small part of the salary on a monthly basis into the Intel stock purchase at the discounted price. The ELP program enables the employee to accumulate the unused vacation days over years and then take a several weeks’ leave to enjoy travelling or fulfilling other dreams. During the employee’s absence there is a backfill provided by someone else so that you don’t need to worry about the work not getting done.”

- Elena Pegova, Intel Finance Specialist

“I personally appreciate the financial support Intel is providing for the day care of our two year old son. This contribution is very important for all families with small children at Intel Germany.”

- Kerstin Agner, Intel Administrative Support Specialist

“I love to run, I even compete in 5K and 10K races. So I got together with some of my colleagues here and we started taking daily runs through the forest near the office on our lunch breaks. Intel provides showers so we can take our run, get back, shower, get changed and get back to work. It’s a nice way to break up your day.”

- Carlos Lopez, Hardware Engineer

“Intel’s flexible working schedule is a big part of why I like it here. This makes it easier for many people with children to manage their day, enabling them to do things like bring their kids to school. I also like being able to work from home when want take care of any personal needs or appointments that can’t be postponed.”

- Sabrina Keller, Data Planner

Employees Stories

Employees Stories

Intel is all about designing and developing technology that has a real impact on how we live. Nowhere are the results of this felt more than in the field of autonomous cars. Driving is an integral part of modern life, and as cars become ever more sophisticated, Intel will continue to be there to develop new standards to lead the way forward. As part of Intel’s commitment to this emerging technology, we have made automated driving one of the cornerstones of the Virtuous Cycle that Intel’s future growth will rest upon..

We recently spoke to some of the engineers working on the ground in Karlsruhe, Germany to provide a snapshot of what brought them to this project and what others could look forward to when they pursue a career with Intel. We’ll be presenting each of their takes on a unique aspect of what we mean when we say, “Amazing works here.”
