Pros

Depending on job, work/life balance can be great. Good benefits including stock purchase, retirement contributions, stock allocations. Very ethical corporation, makes one pround to work there.

The opportunity to try several job functions through lateral moves is very high. One can pretty easily get general management explerience by taking jobs in different functional ares. It is accepted practice to move jobs every 1-2 years.

People are very friendly and talented. A focus on family is obvious with alot of flexibility for work/life with young families. Of course this can change depending on the manager. Great people to work with, most have a strong affinity for Intel.

Cons

Hierarchial, very large corporation can make one feel lost or detached from the prodcuts and customer. Power and decisions seem limited to the few of est. 85k employees, although I suspect this is typical of large corporations.

Leadership program is limited to mid-managers with nothing for rising talent.

Not necessarily a bad thing, but you must own your own employment and have plan for promotions and career, they will not be handed to you.

Often times working in remote groups. Allows for good flexibility for working from home and flexible hours but can limit the amount of comradery and teamwork one feels when everyone in the same place.

Advice to Management

Work on leadership development of young talent. Don't wait until mid-management before training the leader, by then the good ones will leave.

    Pros

    Intel provides the best benefits of a major company in high-tech. This is particularly beneficial when single folks become married folks who start having children. Intel is still progressive when it comes to profit sharing in 401k programs, and also for higher-learning options.

    Cons

    Middle Management has been hollowed out by Intel not having enough high growth, high revenue opportunities. The bench strength of Intel appears to be waning.

    Advice to Management

    If the company routinely is losing top talent, what needs to be done to figure out how to capture lightning in a bottle? It doesn't seem that new college grads can fill the pipe fast enough to satisfy shareholders.

    Pros

    Intel continually resets the agenda in the semiconductor industry, and achieves what others deem impossible. The opportunity to work with some of the best and brightest in the industry. Intel values; risk taking, customer orientation, discipline, results orientation, quality, and a great place to work.

    Cons

    The aggressive, results oriented culture is not for everyone. Working for a large company you tend to work a smaller portion of the challenge. Moving laterally across organizations can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Make the creation of a lateral move program a priority
