Career Site

Intel is the world's leading maker of computer chips and powers more than 90% of the world's computers with its processors inside.

Intel supplies the computing and communications industries with chips, boards, systems, and software building blocks that are the "ingredients" of computers, servers, smartphones, networking and communications products.

Revenues in 2013 were $52.7 billion, down 1% from the previous year, and net income was $9.6 billion.

PC Client Group revenue at the company was $33.0 billion in 2013, down 4 percent from 2012. Computer sales have declined over the past couple of years due to increased purchases of tablets.

Brian Krzanich was appointed chief executive officer of Intel Corporation and elected a member of the board of directors on May 16, 2013. He replaced Paul Otellini.

Intel said it would spend $11 billion this year on research and development.

The company plans to cut over 5,000 jobs this year.

History

Founded in 1968 by Bob Noyce and Gordon Moore to build semiconductor memory products, Intel introduced the world's first microprocessor in 1971. The company name Intel was chosen, short for "integrated electronics." That name was taken by a company that called itself Intelco, so Moore and Noyce purchased the rights.

Apple Computer switched to using Intel chips in 2005 for its entire computer line.

Benefits

Employees receive salary, stock options and opportunity for cash bonuses twice per year based on company profits.

Intel United States provides a broad range of medical plan types to choose from, assuring employees cost-effective and flexible choices when selecting a quality health plan. Types of plans include Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plans where regionally available, a Point of Service (POS) plan, a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan, a consumer-driven health plan and a high-deductible health plan. Intel and employees share the cost of employee and dependent health care coverage. Dependent health care coverage is available to full-time employees only.
Dental Benefits
Intel offers dental care through two types of dental plans, available at most major U.S. sites; the national Intel Dental plan and Dental Health Maintenance Organization (DMO) plans where regionally available. Employee premium cost is paid by Intel in most cases.
Sheltered Employee Retirement Plan
Intel's Sheltered Employee Retirement Plan (SERP) is designed to be a partnership between you and Intel, with each playing an active role in preparing for your retirement. SERP has three components:
1. Intel 401(k) Savings Plan ­ Intel's voluntary 401(k) Savings Plan allows employees to contribute up to 50% of their eligible earnings, to an IRS maximum of $14,000 in 2005, on a pretax basis to a wide range of investment choices.
2. Intel Profit Sharing Retirement Plan - Through the profit-sharing plan, an eligible employee's portion of Intel's profit-sharing contribution is put aside pretax for future security. Intel's profit-sharing contribution is a discretionary contribution determined annually based on the company's profitability. Intel contributed 8% of eligible earnings to employees in 2003.
3. Intel Defined Benefit Pension Plan - if the profit sharing plan does not provide the defined minimum retirement benefit, then the pension plan will make up the difference. In effect, employees receive the higher of the value of their profit sharing account or the defined benefit under the pension plan.

After you retire, Intel will contribute towards the cost of your retiree medical plan coverage based on your eligible years of service.
