Strong financial performance and leadership from top Job security is good as the company continues to perform and have low volatility in employee turnover Rotation program provides way to broaden your skillset and experience, and learn different business units at Intel
Very hierarchical and process oriented (too much bureaucracy) Hours could be long, although the hours are flexible as long as work is completed on time Rotattion program adds to ramp time as you start a new in a new role every 1.5 to 2 years; this is both a pro and a con, depending on how you look at it

Legacy company. Several pivotal contributions to High-Tech field. Strong and experienced management who, unfortunately, continue to face a lot of headwinds.
I shared my experience as an applicant but feel the need/ urgency to reiterate as I've always held Intel in very high regards. Race/ gender politics is superseding meritocracy, starting right at applicant pool assessment stage. I so happen to be a woman and of 'color' (POC, to be politically correct). Despite there being a strong alignment in terms of skills/ exp. with a highly specialized role, I was being tapped out as I didn't meet desired race profile of HR/ Managers, who too happened to be POCs. I've had a similar experience previously. Intel is suffering from race-nepotism, where certain managers may bar certain other ethnicities, especially if they'd like to be perceived as 'model minority'. I can see this eroding objective, meritocratic assessment of deserving candidates who may not want to chime in 'lead'h'er' song or vow allegiance to any specific ethnic group, over choosing the company. This strategic barring is done by very seasoned (cunning) Chief of Staff.2
