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

Pros

Intel can be an exciting and engaging place to work. They are literally building the future and if you have the right skills and commitment you can too! There are many unseen elements opportunities over their diverse range of careers there. Impeccably ethical, if not to the point of seeking to be uniformly equitable to all.

Cons

You really do own your own career there and shouldn't expect much in the way of someone else bringing you along. They are a huge company very much akin to working for a small government in many regards. Management is not iffy on making whole-scale cuts or reorganizations to meet the need of business direction, so no job is completely "safe" from the restructuring ax. They love to work RCG's because they usually have nothing but work to fill their lives. Can make it feel a bit like a meat grinder.

Advice to Management

Strive to better leverage the ideas and innovations of individual contributors. Some teams are still bound by the groups they originate from. There is no excuse for upper management to have not foreseen the growth of the phone market nor the tablet market. These were obvious plays that should have been driven by Intel innovation and not chased as a me-too brand play. Get some thought leaders in who are not played out media-mavens (yes, I do mean Wil.I.Am...) There is no reason Intel should not be putting processors into EVERY sheet of reusable paper being used and putting them in every school across America...or the world. Get someone to think outside the box for a bit.

Help the company make the mental shift from high margin processors to high volume processors. This mentality is a HUGE impediment to the transition inside Intel. Too many people's compensation is structured around high margin mark-ups and this will have to change as the people's platform of choice changes. It will happen one way or another, help them be ready for it.

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

    Pros

    Fantastic Learning Opportunities. The most advanced microprocessors in the world. Intel owns the facilities and spends copious amounts on Research and Development.

    Cons

    Swearing, yelling, blaming, pointing the finger, and just plain unprofessionalism. It depends on what lab you work in. Some managers have too much time and others not enough. Some managers spend a great deal of time "spying" on employees. I guess it's the same in any company, but I thought Intel had higher standards.

    Advice to Management

    Blue badge employees, supervisors, managers, and team leads are placing too much responsibility on Green Badge employees and or the contingent workforce.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Intel provides a great environment for technical discussions in and across teams. Provides lot of good training to strengthen your understanding of the field.

    Cons

    You are expected to sometimes unreasonably handle a lot of tasks in parallel by manager. This leads to getting burnt out and lesser productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Need to set reasonable expectations and timelines for individuals/teams based off of a higher level view of all tasks they are handling.
