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)

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.


Would You Recommend

Yes

4.7 of 5 stars

An Awesome Learning Experience
Portland, OR | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Working with multiple groups and learning so many new tools and understanding how the corporate world works. It is so much different than School, and you are able to incorporate and bring in new ideas, there is always an ongoing urge to get things done and do well and make a difference.


Downers

There is nothing as such, sometimes not getting access to some confidential documents causes problems as you will not be able to proceed without some important information regarding projects.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you want to learn something and work with different groups on cool projects, this is the place to be. Employees are really helpful and everybody values your own decisions.


Advice to Management

Well a few more relevant trainings regarding the tools that you are required to use will be helpful for someone new.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Intel Intern seeks to change the world from behind the walls of a cubicle
Portland, OR | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Lots of networking

Great place to work where people care about you.

Everyone is down to earth.

Open door policy where anyone can contact/communicate with anyone (yes even the CEO!).

Really good pay

Lots of fun events to hang out and get to know other friends

I was given high impact projects

Treated as a valued member on project teams - not just an intern

Flexible hours


Downers

Sometimes workload is slow and could get a little boring


Advice to Potential Interns

Step outside your shell and spend as much time as you can meeting others, helping others out, and learning new things. If you don't have something to do, don't waste your time, go find something to do that is helpful and beneficial to you! This is your internship - rock it!


Advice to Management

You guys rock and make me feel very valued and fortunate to be an intern here. Keep treating your employees with the utmost respect and it helps keep the workplace a great environment. Thanks!

Yes

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

The opportunity to leave an impact on the future of computers by developing the technology of tomorrow.
Portland, OR | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I was given a high degree of autonomy within this internship, and was encouraged to come up with my own ideas and projects to contribute to the company.


Downers

In this internship I took on all that I possibly could. In doing so I made my internship higher stress than is required for a high productivity work environment.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you are planning on interning at Intel I would highly recommend opting for a longer internship. My internship was six months in duration, and I felt like the first half was far less productive as I was coming up to speed on the work environment and team expectations. In the second half of this internship I felt much more confident so I was far more successful at getting projects done.


Advice to Management

Intel is working very hard to make its inherently stressful environment more of a fun place to work. The Great Place to Work program is doing a good job of making this a positive work space.


Would You Recommend

Yes

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.


Would You Recommend

Yes
