    I have been working at Intel Corporation (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Get to have the experience

    Cons

    RACIST, they talk about diversity but the people working there are the most anti-diverse ever known. RUDE, you would say hi to them or ask them a question and they wouldn't answer. No room for advancement for young people. They do not tolerate noise and i can keep going ...Even the CEO is making a great job promoting diversity at the workplace, unfortunately that word does not exist in the employees dictionary.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Great coworkers who make working there bearable.

    Cons

    The company has lost its soul. It recently laid off many employees with no eligibility for rehire as a regular full time employee..on the basis of performance. Many of these employees were rated successful at performance review, the kicker being that they were impacted because they had a slower STOCK rating. Nowhere does HR guidelines say that having a lower stock level would be grounds for dismissal. To cap that, the company is hiring back these workers into the same job, working on the same project, days later as contingent workers. So they are bad enough to be laid off, but perfect to continue working as a CW - imagine the savings in bonus, benefits etc. BEWARE of this company.

    Advice to Management

    Get the "leaders" in order and clean house. Actually deal with trust issues by listening to employees, rather than throwing more training at managers - they are not the entire problem. HR is out of touch and needs new leadership.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Health benefits; Paid Sabbatical

    Cons

    No Transparency; Performance review solely based on manager's preference

    Advice to Management

    BK laid off many talented long-time employees who's in their 40s, senior position, had taken leave. The worst thing is that those people are labeled as "no rehire ever after". Those employees have been contributing to Intel if they survive that long. Do you really need to destroy their career (not only at Intel but also outside as the information leaked to the public) Who will hire those people labeled as "bottom"? Do you trust those people who gave them bad ratings? Have you communicated clearly to managers about stock level grant is equivalent to performance ratings? A "Successful" rating is not really "successful" under your newly defined category!

    -Management sucks. They trick you in your focal by telling you are successful and give you low# of stocks and then fire you because they gave you low amount of stocks. They find ways to let he older employees go -Always being threaten to get laid off -They come and tell you have to move to another city or loose your job -You will get laid off after you reach 50 and replaced by few cheap heads in India or Malaysia -You will get laid off if you are close to retirement -You will get laid off if you take your sabbatical -You will get laid off if you go on medical leave

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance (in some groups and under some managers). Good Benefits. Extremely intelligent employees.

    Cons

    Terrible work life balance (in most groups and under most managers) since Type As tend to want to achieve. Semiconductor Industry in decline. VSP then layoffs which were handled badly - external sites leaked the info before employees were informed? Then even when communicating internally double speak was used. Coincidentally Lots of older folks or those with medical issues impacted. Employees are worried and there is no more trust in management.

    Advice to Management

    Anyone with half a brain can see the company is in decline or there is a "house cleaning" happening. Execs out include Dadi, and recently Renee James leaving and 2 other execs initially hired from outside are "Retiring". Better to spend management's effort trying to win in the phone or software space since the prominence of CPUs is waning. Less politics, more great products, more transparency when communicating with employees.

    Pros

    Decent pay, reasonable EPB/ECB, easy to get in to Intel, they hire people from any background - biochemistry, stem cell, cell biology also

    Cons

    No work-life-balance, poor RSU offer, most managers suck, night on-call sucks, no life overall.

    Advice to Management

    Be fast to respond to employees on HR Legal or other HR related issues. Do not ask for excuses that you have low HR manpower and multiple cases to review. Consider employee's urgency of the cases reported.
