Engaging Work Environment: The company fosters a dynamic and collaborative work environment that encourages knowledge sharing and innovation. As a Platform Validation Engineer, I had the opportunity to work with a talented and diverse team of professionals who were passionate about their work. The atmosphere was motivating, and I always felt supported and valued.
Since it's a huge company it's harder to grasp the whole project sometimes

Legacy company. Several pivotal contributions to High-Tech field. Strong and experienced management who, unfortunately, continue to face a lot of headwinds.
I shared my experience as an applicant but feel the need/ urgency to reiterate as I've always held Intel in very high regards. Race/ gender politics is superseding meritocracy, starting right at applicant pool assessment stage. I so happen to be a woman and of 'color' (POC, to be politically correct). Despite there being a strong alignment in terms of skills/ exp. with a highly specialized role, I was being tapped out as I didn't meet desired race profile of HR/ Managers, who too happened to be POCs. I've had a similar experience previously. Intel is suffering from race-nepotism, where certain managers may bar certain other ethnicities, especially if they'd like to be perceived as 'model minority'. I can see this eroding objective, meritocratic assessment of deserving candidates who may not want to chime in 'lead'h'er' song or vow allegiance to any specific ethnic group, over choosing the company. This strategic barring is done by very seasoned (cunning) Chief of Staff.2
