I worked at Intel Corporation as a contractor for more than 10 years

Pros

Overall is pretty effective for Intel's size.
For most positions, meritocracy prevails.
Encourage and facilitate employees to transfer.
Decent compensation.
Every employee is in a cubicle, no office even for CEO.

Cons

Very intensive and not for faint of heart.
For some groups, bureaucracy of large company is visible.
Capital allocation ability of top management appears to be sub-par, this has lead Intel to be stuck with limited products and markets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage designers to think more innovative instead of following check list.

    Former Employee - Manufacturing Technician in Chandler, AZ

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay is better than it first appears.

    Cons

    Micromanaged, too many middle managers, poor morale, sweat shop but they tell you it isn't, try to manipulate people's lifestyles...once you get into an organization they do not let you out unless medically required. Require you to "flex" your hours instead of paying overtime on days off for cost savings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of 80% middle layers of management.

    Current Employee - Validation Technician in Folsom, CA

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Clean, Certain techs do very good work.

    Cons

    Green Badges "Temps" or "Contingent Workers" are shut out of any and all Intel parties/programs/events. As a veteran I tried to attend their veteran event and was turned away because my badge wasn't blue. The Actual workers for Intel "Blue Badges" talk down on green badges. EXTREMELY one sided racial ratio. Nobody speaks English unless they have to. Very poor security, people walk out with items in their purse/luggage all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who can actually speak and read English fluently.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
