    Pros

    Great benefits and compensation including RSUs, quarterly bonus structure and sabbatical after 4-7 years. Good support of work life balance and flexibility depending on the role. Innovation fostered at all levels of the organization. New CEO making a difference in strategy, innovation and hiring top talent.

    Typical challenges associated with a large company - bureaucracy, redundancy and slow decision making. Had become very risk adverse - seeing some good progress in this area lately.

    They have great benefits, they are a technology that should keep growing

    They need to start embracing their philosophy "Work Life"....meaning they need to understand there is more to their company in the employees lives, should understand that the employees also have families.

    Pros

    The quality and variety of the people that you work for and with is top notch, It will challenge you to be on. I have had a variety of opportunities in my 20+ years and have very seldom been bored. New CEO is improving accountability and expectations for the company and leadership.

    Cons

    Stress can be challenging if not managed properly, also Constructive Confrontational style is not for everyone and can take some getting used to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up, definitely taking things in the right direction lately

    Pros

    As I mentioned in the title, Intel is a great place to work with a lot of oportunities to growth professionally. Besides the compensation benefits are very good like bonus, stocks, medical insurance, gym, etc

    Cons

    Burocracy is the highlighted con that you will face at Intel. So you must get used to and have some patience when you want to implement a project or idea

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A good management should be human oriented and with good leadership skills as well. He/She must transparent for decision making and help the employee in his/her career development

    Pros

    Great open door culture - can have a 1:1 with anyone at any level

    Cons

    Due to job freezes, can be difficult to move around from role to role; especially if you have a manager that has been with company long time and doesn't believe in moving around every 2 years
    Lots of perks have been removed - telecommute days are gone now

    Good place to work with lots of opportunity but also lots of bureaucracy

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Marketing Manager  in  Chandler, AZ
    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Chandler, AZ

    Pros

    The company is large enough that you can have multiple jobs and even careers without changing your employer. There are many bright people with good ideas. It is difficult to find other companies where you can have such strong influence over technology in the world and capabilities. The benefits are very thorough along with many small perks that make it a place to be proud of.

    Cons

    As with any large company, there is significant bureaucracy. From both a decision making standpoint as well as work environment, politics tends to be more important that facts, data, and doing things the right way. This can be particularly evident with the generally poor people management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep people who are great technical minds or individual contributors on a career path where they can be successful on their own. Too many individuals with no ability to lead, inspire, or direct are put in as people managers and cause their organization to flounder. Poor management kills morale.
