Great place to work where you are a contributing member of a team, not a temporary project based man.

Sacramento, CA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Loved the experience. i fulfilled a role that I would expect to do straight out of college. Not there to be a support for team members, but was an actual team member

Downers

Not a fan of California.

Advice to Potential Interns

Have fun and network like crazy. If you dont like where you are, most likely Intel has an oppertunity doing something you will like. they really encourage moving around to various roles.

Advice to Management

I didn't feel that management had an interst in myself as a person. My manager was great, but higher up management took no effort to get to know me or make me feel welcome.

Would You Recommend

Yes

I learned more over the last 6 months than I have in the 3 years I have been at college.

Learning professional CAD tools.

Downers

I did not like that I had to drive through rush hour to get to work.

Advice to Potential Interns

It is one of the best internship experiences out there. Intel really knows how to treat their interns and make sure they have the best experience possible.

Would You Recommend

Yes

I learned how to effectively manage a factory.

I was given a lot of reponsibility and had actual control of the factory. I like the management aspect as well as the technical side of the job. I was able to work on my decision making skills and improve my verbal communication during this internship.

Downers

I had to work a weird shift to match the operators and technicians in the factory.

Advice to Potential Interns

Intel is a great company and I feel they put their interns in a position to expand their knowledge as well as letting them contribute to something that matters within the company.

Advice to Management

I cannot think of anything. I was in management so I recieved a unique experience on my internship.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Wow! Working Here Is Awesome!

Working at Intel was very low-stress. You are given assignments and expected to complete them, but (at least in the case of interns) the work is very manageable, and you can rely on members of your team to be professional and help you if needed.

Downers

My manager and other members of my team held regular meetings for a long time that I wasn't invited to. I think a great internship experience is rooted in transparency and all-inclusiveness. I had to assert many times that I wanted to be included in these meetings before I started to be invited.

Advice to Potential Interns

This is your opportunity to move your career along, gain real-world experience, make new friends and have a lot of fun doing it. Just grab the opportunities presented to you by the horns and give 110% effort. You get out what you put in. Also, go to all of the meetings and as many events as possible.

Advice to Management

A lot of the events that Intel held were during regular business hours. If you're an undergrad intern, you're paid an hourly wage, so you have to constantly check with your manager whether you can count the hours of an event towards your weekly hours or not. More often than not, this results in having to put in 4-5 hours overtime at odd hours of the day. I would advise management to just be open with your interns, and give them free reign to choose whether the hours they spent at an event should count towards their weekly hours, like an honor system. If anything, this can provide character building, and does more good than bad.



Also, invite your interns to all meetings!! Transparency!!

Would You Recommend

Yes

Networking and experience!

The people I work with are really awesome

Downers

Free soda and sitting around made me gain weight! I need to start excersizing.

Advice to Potential Interns

Just have fun with it!

Advice to Management

The move to agile is like stopping a mile long freight train going 100mph. You have to do it really slow and carefully or it will crash and burn.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Diverse experience gives a strong foundation for multiple career choices in the future

Uppers

Pay, as well as the amount of freedom I was given on my projects.

Downers

More guidance would have been useful at certain points

Advice to Potential Interns

Act like an employee, not an intern. The best way to move up is to take on the duties of those above you in this particular company.

Advice to Management

Have a stronger structure of what needs to be done at least on one or two projects so the final results can make your interns feel confident.

Would You Recommend

Yes

One of the best experience, Dream come true!

Working on the on-going projects and quality of work. Not side-lined with some irrelevant work as an Intern.

Downers

Compensation and bonuses.

Advice to Potential Interns

The company does some of the best work in the world. They are the pioneers and excellent work environment.

Would You Recommend

Awesome place to work, build skills and network!

Portland, OR | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Networking, skill building, location, flexibility

Downers

There is nothing I can think of to report as a con.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be yourself, be open to learn, be alright to be wrong and re-learn and most of all treat each day here as an oportunity to network and expand your skills and contacts.

Advice to Management

Be clear on expectations and be flexible.

Would You Recommend

Yes

An internship where you don't stop learning

4.4 of 5 stars

Portland, OR | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Diverse environment with a full immersion; always an opportunity to learn; easy to network and get yourself out there

Downers

Some political play that you need to be wary of; just as easy to be stagnant as it is to progress and learn

Advice to Potential Interns

Emphasize your will to learn and grow. Experience helps, but it is more about adaptability and learning potential with creative applications of acquired knowledge.

Advice to Management

Run more checks on some of the management. There are some that made it a poor environment to work at. 3 others and myself left our contracts early to avoid working under this individual any further. Only 1 poor experience though, I've been very happy with my new group.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great team work at Intel. I felt like I am feeting in and I am doing meaningful work.
