Intel is a solid but slow-growth technology company. Don't come here to advance your career quickly.

I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Intel is generally a reliable employer with good pay and benefits, especially outside the Bay Area. It's culture is fairly directly and there is some emphasis on meritocracy, within reason.

Cons

While Intel is smart financially, it is struggling to grow in the future. Here you can have a stable career but not one with rapid advancement or new opportunities. Intel isn't always looking for innovative business ideas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Place more emphasis on growing the company and creating more career advancement opportunities for employees.

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

    Pros

    Good total compensation. Opportunities are abundant with respect to career and location.

    Cons

    Review process is horrible. It used to be a popularity contest among first level managers, staged behind closed doors. Now it's even less transparent. Once you turn 50, unless you are a well-connected manager, you become a target. You will be urged to accept a voluntary separation package. Alternatively, you can stay and defend your job every year or two.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch the depth of your experience pool. Stop asking for more H1B visas and concentrate on motivating and retaining the local talent you have.

    I worked at Intel Corporation as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work, a sense of accomplishment daily, working with the best and smartest people in the Industry, opportunity to change roles and grow and learn new job skills. Great internal training and training is a focus for everyone, not just a few. The pay is excellent adn you manage your own time. They embrace innovation and new ideas. Can be a life long career stop with great beneifts. I was an employee for 10 years, left for a couple and am now back as a contract employee and feel like I am home again. Grass was not greener on the other side, but love being here as Consultant/ Contractor

    Cons

    The work is demanding and can be stressful. Comapny is filled with "Alphas / Drivers" and is not for the meek and quiet. ( May not be a Con, but is what it is)
