      Clever, ethical company, let down by poor sales teams.

      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.

      Pros

      Depth and breadth of opportunities to grow one’s career is hard to match.

      Cons

      Navigating a large, complex organization requires investment of time & energy. Decision making can be slower than desired.

      Bureaucratic Decision making is not dynamic To move up you need strong management sponsorship. Not as much of a meritocracy as it claims to be
