I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Lots of benefit, although not the best but among the top 10.

Cons

Focal system (performance management) which usually will punish certain percentage of employee even though everyone work very hard for whole of last year. Theoretically this system retain only the good employee, however nowadays it become a tool that dismiss talent from Intel.

Advice to Management

Time to rethink the focal system.

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

    Pros

    A very dynamic company with well defined task-oriented culture. Therefore, employees are managed based on results instead of methods. Strong emphasis in integrity and safety. Benefits are great as compensation other than basic salary could make up as much as 35% of the total compensation.

    Cons

    Job scope could be limited as Intel requires employee to be the content expert in certain areas. Employees, therefore, have the depth but sometimes lacking the breadth. As a result, skills obtained might not be useful outside of Intel. However, Intel encourages employees to seek jobs within the company and thus, improving the breadth and exposure.

    Advice to Management

    Look far ahead instead of quarterly indicators. Continue to promote the culture of challenging status quo and always reward calculated risk taking regardless of outcome (even though it contradicts result orientation). Otherwise, everyone will start to shy away from making the company better.
