4.8 of 5 stars

Portland, OR | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Being treated as a valued contributor rather than as a know-nothing student. My input is appreciated here, and that really resonated with me.

Downers

Unlike other big names in tech companies, Intel puts less emphasis on small perks like free cafeteria lunches (which would've been great, because the Intel Café has good food).

Advice to Potential Interns

Ownership is key. Everything at Intel comes down to project ownership. If you own your projects, and are willing to treat them like the most important things happening in your work-life, you can expect to be successful. Care about the things that are assigned to you in the same way that Noyce and Moore cared about Intel when it got started.

Advice to Management

New Employee Orientation needs some kind of overhaul. That was a 7 hour meeting jam-packed with just about 2 hours worth of agenda items. I think it'd be nice if NEO were either shortened due to lack of content, or filled with more valuable information.

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

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

Downers

Not as people oriented as I would prefer. It is more difficult than expected to get a full time job.

Advice to Potential Interns

Keep up to date on what the company your applying for is working on. Display your strengths that are applicable to the job you want. Be very willing to learn and express that.

Advice to Management

Be willing to teach your interns. Do not hire them for a permanent position unless you plan on bringing them on full time. Don't have us train our replacements.

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