    Former Employee - Corporate Marketing in Santa Clara, CA
    Former Employee - Corporate Marketing in Santa Clara, CA

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

    Pros

    Category leader, global scale, market mover and influential. When the market is growing, opportunities abound and you can make your own career. When the market cycles down, cost-cutting becomes painful and infighting brutal.

    Cons

    Too many meetings and heavy handed financial controls slow day to day business. Senior leaders pound the faster, better, cheaper mantra to death regardless of their understanding of reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act more like managers and less like royalty.
