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

Pros

Everything has a process, Intel University, smart people there who will mentor you, fast-paced and challenging. Used to be a metric driven company

Cons

Everything has a process... one of my peers told me 'Intel is where fun goes to die.' I would add... 'and where creativity goes to die.' A student once told me 'why would I work at Intel- it's just a bunch of type A people pissing on each other all day.' Pretty accurate. The culture actually draws out the absolute the worst type A behaviors in people there but of course, it is accepted since the hope is it also draws out the best type A behaviors- long hours, internal competition and confrontation on every little thing

Advice to Management

I am glad you have an engineering CEO again. Get back to metric driven decision making. Dont make it so managers have to break/undo something and put it back together to get a good review. Promote people there with high EQ and humanity so everyone doesnt just feel like some widget in a process. Remove RIsk Taking from your values. You know it iisnt true. Everyone there is absolutely terrified to take any risk in case it should fail in any way. The one phrase I heard there most was- fly below the radar and move internally to a new position every year, if possible. Figure out how to reward the good type A behaviors but severely punish the bad type A behaviors

    I have been working at Intel Corporation as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    People are very professional. As an intern they respect me and allowed me to do what I wanted as in gaining work experience.

    Cons

    As a contracted Intern, I feel as though my job there was always just temporary, never meant to be full time.
