I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

High concentration of talented people, very intelligent and deliberate values,

Cons

Talented employees identify others as 'competent' or 'incompetent' on a hair trigger - judgement is rampant. More idiots who can play the game than people with real passion or ideas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower your employees to do what they care about - quit 'no more free candy - but here's 250k to blow on a totally unnecessary part because the Engineer said so.'

THE SKILLED MTs ARE THE ENGINEERS HERE

    Pros

    Those co-workers and managers who believe in doing the right thing and who want to teach you;
    Daily challenges that help you to develop new skills, think critically, and build an ever growing network of Intel peers.
    There are high expectations of you, which keeps you on your toes.
    Flexibility to manage own vacation, sick-time, and to work from home every now and then when justified;
    Free drinks, on-site cafe and gym, car charging stations, free fruit, green power, composting and recycle programs.
    Employee autonomy is pretty standard. Not much micro-management.
    Corporate charter flights allow for easy visiting of some Intel US facilities.

    Cons

    CYA is very important;
    Management doesn't always understand employee workload or expertise so you may not get the right support;
     Say 'yes' attitude means you work as much as you need to in order to get the job done.
    Day to day tools are in need of upgrading (databases and data management in general, laptops, certain internal websites, company cell phones).
    Open/mobile work environment is like working in a noisy call center. Nearly impossible to concentrate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be better about driving the employee's 'top 5'. Learn what your people do and stand up for them. Be more than just a people manager.Be considerate of each individual's personal work style and try to accommodate it for productivity's sake (ie re: the open/call center style work environment).
