    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Very systematic and have great benefits and people development program. Was proud to be part of this great company for 21 years!

    Cons

    Too much focus on diversity resulted in alienation of mainly male employees.

    Advice to Management

    Balance diversity with fairness!

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, smart people, fantastic products and a real sense of meaning to the work. Its a fantastic brand for your resume and you'll be exposed to a wide ecosystem of partner companies.

    Cons

    Overly process driven - just raising a purchase order can take weeks and there is a distinct lack of trust from compliance and accounting teams. Can be overly political.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give up on Australia as a place to find great employees and as a growth market for cutting edge products.

    I worked at Intel Corporation (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Job is demanding but you are working with smart & dedicated people and everyone is driven to deliver to the best of their abilities. There could be a few free-loaders around, but they usually get found out and weeded out quickly.

    Cons

    Project-based environment, so work-life balance takes a back seat during crunch time. However, management gives time off after project is done. So I guess this may not be a con. But if you are looking for consistent time-in-time-out, that's not gonna happen here.

    Advice to Management

    Bold actions are needed when strategic shift is needed in order to steer the ship pass the inflection point and continue growing. Intel almost missed the boat in mobile and I'm glad the new management realized that and is focused on catching up.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company, very professional environment, a lot of benefits for employee too. It's been the best place I have ever worked at

    Cons

    I do not have much to complain though. Perhaps the job I took did not involve much with what I have learned from my degree

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing your great work. It was a pleasure to work at Intel. I'd love to have a permanent opportunity at the company


  7. "Great culture"

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great engineering company, whose products have been second to none for a long time. Company has high ethical standard and practices them. Very intelligent staff. Most people stay at Intel for more than 10 years.

    Cons

    No training: not a single day of training for employees on how to work with this massive organisation of 100+ employees, its products or extensive partner network. Managers discourage training by withholding funding.

    Everyone has the authority have a say on anything, but no responsibility for the consequences. Expect more and more 'decision makers' to be brought into every meeting and disrupt decision making. Even managers are frustrated by their teams going rogue.

    Sales teams are inward facing, spending time in internal meetings than working with customers. Some hoard information to justify their job titles. You are told by the CEO downwards to sell yourself internally and build an internal network if you want to be successful.

    Poor communication structure: emails are ignored, yet you receive 200+ per day. You're required to call a meeting to discuss anything. e.g., I had to present at least 5 forecast meetings every week!

    Old-school sales teams that rely on the function-feature of excellent products, or by offering marketing dollars. Not once will a sales person ask what's in it for the customer and sell on value. This is hard to maintain now that Intel faces true competition in mobile, tablet and other sectors. How many Apple products or Android phones run Intel?

    Most sales people don't actually sell. They simply influence a customer's decision or latch on to a successful reseller to claim commissions.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of deadwood, restructure the sales teams, mandate efficient communications.
