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

Pros

world class company with world class employees, great work-life balance, strategically significant, solid and consistent experience throughout my career, excellent core values, ability to interface with counterparts in other countries and work with customers all over the globe, informed risk-taking is encouraged

Cons

Sheer size can be an issue for newcomers, need to network a lot to become successful, would like to see more US work sites beyond those concentrated on the west coast

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

    Pros

    The compensation and benefits are good.

    Cons

    We are expected to work every evening and every weekend. Holiday's too. Work-life balance is non-existent. I've never even heard the term mentioned. Processes and tools make what should be the simplest tasks challenging and time consuming. The organizations are overloaded with governance which stifles productivity and brings decision making to a crawl.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are told that the employees are Intel's most valuable asset, yet they are treated as if they are disposable. They are pushed to their breaking point and treated in a disrespectful manner. If you really value your employees, focus more on how to improve their efficiency and promote work life balance. Work life balance means that employees are able to maintain a high level of energy on the job. Without it, they put in more hours but are less efficient.

    Former Employee - Contact Worker (CW) in Chandler, AZ
    Former Employee - Contact Worker (CW) in Chandler, AZ

    I worked at Intel Corporation as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Knowledgeable people and good technology.

    Cons

    I was hired as a contact worker (CW) for a group within Intel in Chandler, AZ after almost six month after I have interviewed with the manager. Apparently the project was not funded on time but the manager liked the first phone interview and ask if I am "still available". I have moved from California to Chandler and leased an apartment on the promise that the contract will last at least one year or 18 month. The contract started with about 3 weeks of slow paced self training meant to get familiar with Intel design procedures and tools.
    Suffice to say after the training was completed no actual work materialized in any shape and form.
    The manager who was managing several departments at different Intel sites including the one I was in Chandler blamed the lack of work on corporate and delayed any tasks until I become very clear that no work was scheduled ahead.
    After two month of inquires and hoping to be utilized at my full skills and qualification I was told there is no work planned ahead and I was let go.
    I was also stuck with a lease I had o break.
    In summary during my two month stint at Intel all I have experienced was incompetence, arrogance and a total lack of consideration and respect toward contactors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your employees including the contact workers you bring aboard.
    Improve your way of manage your departments and the people working for you.
