Pros

- Good Salary and benefits package
- Work/Life balance is an Intel value and generally promoted In the office environment
- Smart co-workers and managers
- Results is what matters. This has made the company successful in the market.

Cons

Intel is really two separate companies, the manufacturing part (known as TMG), and the non-manufacturing part (engineering, corporate services, IT, Payroll, HR, etc…). The cultural difference between them is like night and day. The belief within TMG is they make the money and the rest of the company is just unecessary overhead. The culture in the non-mfg side is much more easy-going and workers are generally happier. Work/life balance in the office environment is a very important corporate value, wheras in TMG, it’s a source of irritation and just another diversion from all that matters – making chips.

Advice to Management

There's more to life than making chips. The company needs to be more services-focused and not so dependent on product lines.

    Pros

    Good benefit, Stable jobs and always get compensated

    Cons

    Work load is crazy, more than 12 hrs a day.
    Work hours is out of control, trying to manage 8 hrs or max 10 hrs a day but can't make it. always 12-24 hrs a day
    Rate and Ranking Sucks!!!! you've work so hard and when compared to other employees that didn't do much, always get at the bottom of the list. Depends on the MANAGER, if he or she knows how to convince others, then, you will be at the top.

    Advice to Management

    Change the R&R system.

  2. Intel is a company where your business analysis skills are rewarded more than your software skills
