Pros

Everything has a process, Intel University, smart people there who will mentor you, fast-paced and challenging. Used to be a metric driven company

Cons

Everything has a process... one of my peers told me 'Intel is where fun goes to die.' I would add... 'and where creativity goes to die.' A student once told me 'why would I work at Intel- it's just a bunch of type A people pissing on each other all day.' Pretty accurate. The culture actually draws out the absolute the worst type A behaviors in people there but of course, it is accepted since the hope is it also draws out the best type A behaviors- long hours, internal competition and confrontation on every little thing

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I am glad you have an engineering CEO again. Get back to metric driven decision making. Dont make it so managers have to break/undo something and put it back together to get a good review. Promote people there with high EQ and humanity so everyone doesnt just feel like some widget in a process. Remove RIsk Taking from your values. You know it iisnt true. Everyone there is absolutely terrified to take any risk in case it should fail in any way. The one phrase I heard there most was- fly below the radar and move internally to a new position every year, if possible. Figure out how to reward the good type A behaviors but severely punish the bad type A behaviors

    Pros

    They really do take care of their own employees, they can take 2 -3 hour lunches, and they pay themselves pretty well!

    Cons

    Horrible place to work if you are a temp employee, they are a little behind in technology, and they do NOT care about your personal life or family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try reading your temp employees resumes when you hire them. You might find out that they have more skills and education than you or your perm employees.

    Pros

    You can put Intel on your resume

    Cons

    Everything. Such a dysfunctional workplace. No direction is ever provided by senior management. Senior management thinks they are the 'king of the castle' and impose fear and intimidation tactics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop keeping secrets, provide direction, lead by example, stop being hostile/bullying
