An Engineering motivated company with ample Career growth

I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time for less than a year

ProsDay to day activity involves complex engineering problem solving.
Accomplishment acknowledgements and promotions.
Engineering culture with no work place politics to allow growth and development in all verticals and horizontals based on individual interest

ConsLarge corporation dealing with lot of nuclear business units, aids growth but possibly with loss of efficiency when untamed.
Technology talent/funding invested largely in the core businesses, more motivation to invest talent in new ideas could provide spin-off business portfolios at lower investments.

Intel is going through another strategic inflection point

Senior Product Manager (Former Employee)
Hillsboro, OR (US)

I worked at Intel Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

ProsAbility to move up is limited, but there are plenty of opportunities to move laterally. A lot of employees seem to telecommute since some team members may reside in different Intel sites and time zones.

ConsEmployee morale is the lowest it has been in 20 years. Intel has a history of investing in a lot of projects, but only to cancel them later. It is not uncommon for a veteran employee to have the scars from several projects that have been cancelled.

Advice to Senior ManagementIntel is going through another one of Andy Grove's so-called "strategic inflection" points. PCs have become a commodity and Intel did not have the IP to compete for early tablet and smartphone design wins. If senior management does not figure out how Intel can win in the "Internet of Things," then I fear that Intel will become as relevant as Fairchild Semiconductor.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
