    Pros

    Challenging work assignments Talented co-workers (very intelligent people for the most part) Decent pay Good health benefits Some flexibility in work location (ie work-from-home)

    Cons

    Options for promotion - very limited Raises - minimal at best (2%) LONG hours 60-80/week Limited recognition for a job well done, but always feedback on what was wrong or could be improved

    Advice to Management

    Rethink focal. Forced distribution means that for one to get a promotion that another gets a poor review. The 2% (average raise) for three years in a row stunk. Pay for the performance.


  2. Great employee benefit and growth opportunity for junior level employees.

    Pros

    Great employee benefit and growth opportunity for junior level employees.

    Cons

    Not the highest pay compared to the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to think outside of the box more and take more risk, they need to pay more attention to the latest trends (consumer-oriented and not so much technology).

    Pros

    I really liked the way company treated employees. The perks of working for Intel were great, and I think that it's a nice place to be in many stages of your career.

    Cons

    Slow, bureaucratic. Not all of the people working there are super bright as you would find at other tech companies. The HR Organization is not very strategic.

    Pros

    The best reason I can think of to work at Intel is that if you are a technically proficient person, you can grow your skills because of the resources available to you. You are exposed to cutting edge technologies that you would not see in many other organizations. If you are lucky enough to find yourself in a good department where teamwork and co-operation are encouraged, then you can thrive.

    Cons

    Intel always pays below the market average. Benefits are good. However, the senior management's inability to stay ahead of the curve in the mobility market has led to a stagnation of the stock price which is a big part of the compensation package. Employees are rated on a bell curve system called ranking and rating. This means someone is always left holding the hot potato. Instead of motivating employees to do better this has led to a back biting environment where the deceitful employees often are rewarded. Those employees who can do "do". Those who can't will lie. Unfortunately the management structure at Intel requires even 1st level supervisors to be in meetings and to crunch numbers most of the time and this creates a disconnect between the workers and those who should observing them closely. The solution is for the workers to submit a "weekly" report of their activities. This is where the deceit comes in. Under-achieving workers simply fluff their report or outright lie about their activities. They are often rewarded simply because they focus most of their efforts on producing weeklys that make them look good.

    Advice to Management

    Managers at Intel are technical people. In other words they are geeks(this is not meant to be derogatory). Geeks have a weakness however. People skills. Management at Intel, overall, lacks people skills. This isn't just the inability to suss out brown nosers as noted above. It also means they tend to treat people like a machine or a number. The best managers I have had at Intel over my career there were those people who already possessed strong people skills before they became a manager. They made me want to work harder simply because I was happy under their management. What I mean by this is I felt safe to do my job, and I knew I wasn't going to get nasty impersonal treatment from them. Having several really awful managers at Intel made me value these people greatly, and the loyalty and dedication to my work was never better under them. Andy Grove's shark tank organizational culture sucks!!! It's the wrong way to do things, and belies an underlying pessimism about human nature. This is no way to motivate people to do their best.
