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

Pros

Focus on deliverables and results. Open, honest culture. People are encouraged to move around inside the company, every level of the company is encouraged to participate in all discussions. If you are in the room, you are included in the discussion.

Cons

Not all groups are created equal. Lots of very smart people. There is a tendency to a culture of "no" and risk taking is waning from the culture.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, learned a lot in my time there, a few good engineers dispersed throughout my organization, flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Many below average or lazy engineers in my organization whose managers don't seem to get that they aren't that good. I was shocked about a year in to my employment when I realized that half the engineers I interacted with were so bad. There were a few that I could not understand how they kept their job, yet they had been at Intel for 20+ years. I hope it was just my group, as Intel as a whole produces some very good products, but my group was a bit of a joke. Don't get me wrong, not everyone there was bad, there were a handful of really good engineers that I had the pleasure to work with, but I could not understand how so many below average engineers could hang on in that place. It was like they found a place to hide and they were just hanging on for as long as they could.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp your review process and get rid of the dead weight. I know several people, some in other groups than mine (and other cities too) that felt that there was lots of dead weight. If someone isn't performing, get rid of them!
