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

    Pros

    good opportunity to learn things if you are a college grad looking to learn discipline and process for supply chain

    Cons

    can be boring and lose challenge once you get the experience. this company became stagnant around 2006 and lost it's excitement.
