    Pros

    The people tend to be brilliant, funny, and kinder than most. Sure, there are some who aren't pulling their weight, but in many cases it's because they're in the wrong position or aren't being challenged. Intel hires well. In some roles, it's easy to move to something new, and the change can be refreshing.

    Cons

    Inconsistency abounds. If your manager is good and supports your career growth and personal life, it can be a great place to be. If your manager isn't as supportive, it can be hell, especially when promotions are few and lateral moves are hard to come by. Great Development Opportunity Tool (DOT) - if you're allowed to use it. I have friends who are desperate for new challenges, who have DOT hiring managers who want to bring them in to work on something - and they've been denied permission to take it on. They're stuck and miserable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Careful with the acceleration. Pedal to the metal only works when there's a clearly-defined road ahead. Some of the new senior leaders who've been promoted as a result of the recent CEO shift are less than inspiring, and seem out of their depth. Make up your mind about software.

    Pros

    Intel does an excellent job of providing opportunities for employees to advance their careers, as well as participate in community events in cities where Intel is located worldwide. The time and energy Intel spends on its employees in making a meaningful career path achievable is second to none. The saying "You Own Your Career" is very true - you have the ability to make it what you want and go as far or as long as you want.

    Cons

    As Intel has grown over the years working effectively in the "big machine" has become more challenging. With any large company, bureaucracy is its own worst enemy and although Intel has acknowledged this the ability to react (real-time) to changing market conditions is hampering it's market position. To quote Steve Jobs, "Working with Intel is like working with a steam ship - not too flexible." Also, base pay is below market average. In recent years Intel has been attempting to reduce its average labor cost (ALC) but not promoting great people who really deserve it is a short sighted MO that, with accelerated turnover, will cost more in the long run. Total Compensation (T-Comp) has not kept up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for ways to cut down on the big machine's noise, make straighter paths for people to get things done and pay market value to top performers.
