I worked at Intel Corporation

Pros

Interesting work, great people, provided with all the resources necessary to get the job done.

Cons

Many of the problems inherent with large companies. Bureaucratic, lots of office politics, they favor h1b visas over american employees, and advanced degrees are given priority over actual skill and performance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Making diversity a priority over meritocracy is the reason Intel's stock price hasn't moved in ten years.

    Pros

    Intel Corp. is a well known global company. Just mentioning that you work for Intel will automatically earn you respect. Intel's large capital reserves as well as duration in the market gives a good feeling of stability. Quarterly updates from senior management will help you spot trends in sales of products and help give you an idea about where the company is headed.

    Total Compensation is very competitive. Intel offers great health benefits with lots of alternatives to choose from. 401k contributions are not matched, but Intel will contribute a certain percentage of your salary to your 401k regardless of your contributions. Bonuses come regularly. The amount will vary depending on profitability of the company, but you can almost count on them.

    Cons

    Everyone has a cubicle. Thinks makes your working environment extremely susceptible to noise and other distractions. The cubes are small (6ft x 8ft for most people) compounding the interruption possibilities.

    Base Pay (what most people look at in compensation) is lower than a lot of other companies out there. If you don't have an "on top of it" manager, you and your entire team will get overlooked for significant raises.

    Some of the best benefits for working for Intel are also part of its downside. Large companies don't always respond well to changes in the marketplace. Besides that, its hard to find a parking spot when your competing with a few thousand other people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While the curve of employee productivity works statistically, it doesn't always mean that there is someone who deserves a reprimand. Sometimes the productivity of the entire group is satisfactory with some outstanding outliers.
    Pay your people well and at least keep up with inflation 1 and 2 percent increases in salary for the standard satisfactory employee are demeaning, especially when inflation is the biggest it has been in 20+ years.
    Be a global company, but think like a smaller nimble company.
