Pros: the entire intel benefit package
Cons: the occasional long days and weekend work
A typical day at Intel involves meeting with customers and teams across the world. Some meetings can be early in the morning or late in the day/evening depending on who the attendees are and where they are physically located at. Management is great and encourages thinking outside of the box and risk taking. Teams and co-workers are great in that everyone is supportive and helpful and respectful. The hardest part of the job is saying good-bye to a fellow co-worker when they leave a team or the company as we have all evolved into an extended family.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction and learning about new cultures whether it is virtually or via International travel. For a company that employs +/- 100K workers around the world, it is wonderful to know that Intel is a place where "everyone knows your name". Other perks Intel provides are a full cafeteria with free beverages and fruits, which includes a breakfast menu until 10:00am and then Lunch from 11:00am to 2:00pm. They also provide an on-site medical clinic for both employees and their families, a gym, a putting green, a basketball court, a bank, and many other concierge services.
The most valuable lesson I have learned as an employee of Intel is that no matter your background, your education, your religion, your gender, or ethnicity everyone has something of value to contribute to success of the Intel Vision and Strategic Imperatives.
