    Great Company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Hillsboro, OR

    ProsI am proud of the conflict free materials we use to produce our chips. As an employee I've been given opportunities to grow that I don't think I'd get elsewhere. I'm encouraged to try new things and given the tools to succeed.

    ConsIt's a large company so you really need to own your development.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work

    Systems Validation Engineer (Former Employee) Hillsboro, OR

    ProsIntel work environment is good. Peers are supportive with good team work.

    ConsVarious managers have different rules, no support from some managers to advance in education. When you have a higher degree pass your boss, he made sure you do not advance

    Advice to Senior ManagementGood luck!

    Good company, lots of politics

    Design Engineer (Former Employee) Folsom, CA

    ProsExcellent engineering skills, upper management is open and honest about strategy, industry, etc.
    Most engineers are very good at their job, and are very dedicated. The entire company is very tech-centric. I've worked at companies that aren't this way, and it is refreshing to see upper management really understand the tech industry.

    ConsLots of politics! Also, middle management seems to have a hard time accepting that the Intel way of doing things is no longer the universal way. There tends to be a lot of people there that think that the rest of the world is waiting for Intel to produce something before it will buy it. Trouble is, that's no longer the case. Lots of internal politics, also. A poorly worded email at the wrong time can kill your entire yearly review.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's time to modernize procedures! Intel is badly behind in the tech world and needs to catch up. Upper management seems to be trying, but there is still too many middle managers that still push the old Intel way of doing things.

    Great technology, strong brand but company size matters!

    Director of Marketing (Former Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsIntel is a juggernaut in the corporate technology world and a recognized brand. Have competitive salaries with great benefits (health, RSU) and a 60 day paid sabbatical program for all FT employees after 7 years of service. A lot of opportunity to switch positions and try new technologies and markets. When you have a strong manager and a fun and creative team...it's a great place to work

    ConsToo big for it's own good...you become a number and it's difficult to make a big impact. Can easily get lost in the crowd and not enough financial or career motivation to work extra to get ahead...complacency is rampant because of the benefits. Too many internal promotions to middle managers with direct report responsibility who should not be handling people's careers. Intel losing big time in mobile and consumers don't see Intel as a relevant company despite what management thinks and the kool-aide they serve. Office politics are increasing and end up spending more time and energy internally rather than on customers or growing market share.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreater scrutiny to how they promote internally to give people direct report responsibilities. Too many managers should not be allowed in their role which only creates a toxic environment. Invest and innovate as much as possible to win in mobile...Intel is losing and not relevant yet and has a ton of work to do. At the entrance to Intel's HQ office says..."innovation is everything"...it's time to live up to that belief.
