    I worked at Intel Corporation (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great medical benefits. The noght shift differential is pretty good. I believe they raised it as I was leaving from 12% to 16%. There was also the 11% differential for compressed work week.

    Cons

    The benefits were good but the pay raises were slow in coming. They kept the pay as low as possible.

    Advice to Management

    You need to work to help your employees more. If they say that they can't do something and they explain their limitations then you should really look into helping them or they will seek employment opportunities elsewhere!

    I worked at Intel Corporation (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Always very challenging work -- Environment is typically very intense. Its your responsibility to manage work/life balance. They have a lot of very smart people to work with who have very high expectations, but it challenges you to become a better person. I always felt like if there was an opportunity to make the process or situation better then you were empowered to make that improvement happen. You just may have to overcome some hurdles from different managers. They have done a better job of defining the decision makers though. If you like to drive projects/improvements and are data/results driven then this is the place for you. I learned a lot from the people I worked with over the years and I was afforded many different opportunities. It's enabled me to have a very successful career.

    Cons

    The company has evolved from a work hard and have fun culture to just work hard. Much more focused on cost than in years past. It's more challenging to be successful if you aren't an engineer or have an "engineering mentality" It has become much more political over the last several years.


  11. Overall good, but, some managers need to be trained about being open

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Big company. Lots of positions or job roles. Vibrant work environment. Easy to change jobs between groups. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Review process is not so transparent. It depends on managers though. Manager may write all the nice words in the review document and tell you all the nice words. But, still may give you some stock allocation, which can be treated as low performer.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent about employee review. If you give any stock level that is treated as lower performance than successful then be open and tell it to the employee directly and write accordingly in the review document.
