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

Pros

Good total compensation. Opportunities are abundant with respect to career and location.

Cons

Review process is horrible. It used to be a popularity contest among first level managers, staged behind closed doors. Now it's even less transparent. Once you turn 50, unless you are a well-connected manager, you become a target. You will be urged to accept a voluntary separation package. Alternatively, you can stay and defend your job every year or two.

Advice to Management

Watch the depth of your experience pool. Stop asking for more H1B visas and concentrate on motivating and retaining the local talent you have.

    I worked at Intel Corporation as a contractor (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work, a sense of accomplishment daily, working with the best and smartest people in the Industry, opportunity to change roles and grow and learn new job skills. Great internal training and training is a focus for everyone, not just a few. The pay is excellent adn you manage your own time. They embrace innovation and new ideas. Can be a life long career stop with great beneifts. I was an employee for 10 years, left for a couple and am now back as a contract employee and feel like I am home again. Grass was not greener on the other side, but love being here as Consultant/ Contractor

    Cons

    The work is demanding and can be stressful. Comapny is filled with "Alphas / Drivers" and is not for the meek and quiet. ( May not be a Con, but is what it is)

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very challenging environment, work with smart people, Reasonable base salary, excellent bonus and profit sharing programs, excellent other perks, good job satisfaction

    Cons

    Office politics has gotten worse over years, sometimes decisions take longer time and can be frustrating, annual focal review process has been complicated but improving

    Advice to Management

    Improve how people's ideas are recognized. Too many managers and other peers with louder vocal chords take credit for others' ideas. Sometimes, excellent ideas are not adopted or acknowledged immediately and months/years later when they are adopted, the originator doesn't get any credit.
    In spite of management efforts, office politics has gotten bad. People are afraid to take risks (compared to 1980-1990s) or think outside the box because either failure is penalized or thoughts outside the box are not accpeted readily. Openness is taking a toll. All of the above have been management promises for years but as we integrate more and more new hires from other companies in a hurry, the old culture has gotten eroded or become incosistent. Needs re-focus.
