I've worked here for nearly 5 years, and the culture & diversity are not that different than those of other large SV companies. (Oh to have the confidence of a mediocre male middle manager.) However, the company is making it a priority to become more inclusive - at least they recognize the issue; solving it will have its own problems.
I had a pretty horrid experience when I was hired full time, and had to quit the company 8 months in. The environment i worked on was competitively hostile, and I was made aware that I was directly competing with person of my grade level, and only one of us was going to get a good review. Not fun. The team, and from observation, the company in general had high tolerance for incompetence, and consistent expectations to work 3-6 hours overtime for below average SE salary. Myself and another woman on the team were publicly shut down for taking initiative and asking for challenging work on a team standup. We were both also misled about the nature of our job, and put into menial positions. I'm aware that Intel experience 95% depends on the management. Intel is currently taking a lot of initiative to hire women in tech fields to get to a 50/50 ratio, which is commendable. They have, however did not improve in women- retainment statistics, and from my experience, I can see why that could be the case.
Recently they instituted more generous maternity leave. They also (depending on manager) offer fairly flexible work environments. There are a lot of smart women, but mid and senior level management are still largely men. Intel just launched a diversity initiative that hopefully will not just encourage hiring more women, but will increase the number of women in the management ranks.
They have an open door policy which allows anyone to raise issues with HR directly.
90% politics 10% meritocracy. Mediocrity. No diversity of thought.
I have worked here for over 5 years. There are women in several management positions but lesser in technical roles. That field is still dominated by men and it's hard to be heard/recognized. There are talks of diversity but it's a joke and looked down upon by many men.
Its a competitive, intense environment. Can be professionally rewarding for folks motivated to achieve but not so for folks wanting to coast.
I've worked here for 5 years and there are a lot of women working here, but predominantly in support roles. Generally I believe they are treated fairly but management is male-dominated and not diverse, which makes it tougher for women to "network" with them. Mid-level women don't seem to advance because of these subtle issues. Also, while maternity leave is generous here I think women are judged harshly by some colleagues and managers for taking the full time.
I have worked for Intel Data Center Group for 20 years and do not feel I have been represented fairly by male supervisors. There have been instances where I was "scapegoated" by supervisors wishing to cover for themselves and forward their own career. Intel culture and performance rating requirements i.e. the necessity to have a set % of employees that receive "below expectations" or "improvement required" ratings encourages competition and backstabbing rather than collaboration. It is a military culture. The performance rating system needs to be revised. Also, this company is definitely a "good old boys" network. Management is male-dominated and not diverse. A male colleague told me that he was at a Portland strip club and Data Center Group management was having a "offsite" together there. Really nice to hear about that!
