4.4 of 5 stars

Working experience which aligns with my educational goals.
Portland, OR | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Everyone here is very approachable and for the most part, easy to talk to. I think communication is one of those important pieces that most people take light of and it really helps to accomplish my work. Also, there is always constant change, which grows to challenge me as an individual.


Downers

My learning style preference is to have clear direction in meeting the goals. Sometimes, I do not have that clear direction. However this enables a challenge for me to navigate on my own to figure out how to do things on my own. If I really feel stuck, my manager is helpful in assisting me to bridge my gaps.


Advice to Potential Interns

Get outside of your comfort zone. While in school, you can go through a rigorous material that is focused in one subject. However, during your internship you will experience how many people from different backgrounds work together to accomplish goals. If your able to step outside your comfort zone and assist where needed, I think it would help to make you stand outside the crowd when your applying for a full-time regular position.

One of the best experience, Dream come true!
Sacramento, CA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

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.

Working at this company enabled me to work at a higher grade level then I could have ever imagined
Portland, OR | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Respect of my mentors and peers was the best aspect. So often in school you are treated like dirt. You are herded through undergraduate studies and then you leave college with a large amount of debt and mental anguish. Since in this internship my opinion matters and my thoughts actually impacted development it taught me to choose my words carefully and contribute precisely whereas school teaches you to scream as loud as you can until someone is annoyed enough to listen.


Downers

Everything is fantastic. Learning the culture was difficult at first but after six months you understand it fairly well.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you are looking for a challenging and rewarding internship I highly recommend Intel Corporation. We do everything from microprocessors to autonomous vehicle research.


Advice to Management

Compensation was low for the level of responsibility I was operating at. My peers say I "Run programs like an E5 engineer" if this is true I should be compensated for this level of responsibility. There are no performance evaluations and no focals. So we never get feedback on long term internships like mine (3 years.)

n/a
San Jose, CA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The flexible hours; the people I worked with; other interns and how much fun they were.


Downers

Some of the projects could have been more exciting.


Advice to Potential Interns

Intel might seem to be an 'older' company, but it really is great for a company in Silicon Valley. There are tons of opportunities here even if you aren't interested in hardware. Their software component is growing and will be more and more important in the future.


Advice to Management

Have a more structured intern program with many more organized events and many more chances for interns to meet each other. One intern (my roommate) ended up organizing most of the events because the actual intern coordinator was based in Oregon. While she was nice, she wasn't really available to schedule things all the time.

If you want to see what it's like to be a real engineer, intern at Intel. If you want to push papers, work somewhere else.
Sacramento, CA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I was treated as if I was a full-time engineer on my team and was given real tasks.


Downers

It had to come to an end.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be prepared to work, but do not fear the work. If you manage to get a job at Intel, you will surely be able to handle the amount of work. (Can be laid back at times)


Advice to Management

ME at Intel: Learn Statistical Analysis
Portland, OR | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Good learning experience; many training courses available. High pay and good benefits.


Downers

Conducting reliability tests can get very dull.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you're a mechanical engineering student, a semiconductor company probably should not be your first choice for an internship. That said, Intel can teach you some very useful tools for data analysis and designing for reliability.

An internship where you don't stop learning
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.

Go as fast as you can in this direction, but we're going to change it next week.
Portland, OR | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I really enjoy the people I work with. My team is very supportive of each other and are genuinely nice people.


Downers

Poor organization, minimal direction, simple job.


Advice to Potential Interns

Try to get more details about daily tasks you will be performing to make an educated assessment of whether you want to join that team.


Advice to Management

Don't hire college graduates, especially with an engineering degree. This job is very basic and could be done with a humanities degree.


Would You Recommend

No
