Intel is a great and challenging place to work. I have learned lots and am enjoying my job.


Uppers

Awesome team, flexible hours, managers that our responsive to my interests, and great opportunities to learn.


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.

Yes

An Awesome Learning Experience


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


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!

Go as fast as you can in this direction, but we're going to change it next week.


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

ME at Intel: Learn Statistical Analysis


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.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Intern experiences career changing opportunity in equipment development.


Uppers

The length of this internship was sufficient to see a project through to completion. Additionally, I was treated as a typical employee during meetings with suppliers.


Downers

The compensation was low for this type of position, responsibilities and time requirements.


Advice to Potential Interns

This organization is project management intensive across a global organization. Your schedule needs to be flexible in order to accommodate all team members.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Benchmarking Intel next-gen CPUs to learn about the inner processes of a computer and its architecture


Uppers

- Being treated like a full time employee and enjoying some full time employee benefits - Working with the latest and greatest Intel hardware - The sheer diversity of work that is done


Downers

- The monotony of some of the tasks involved with benchmarking (waiting for computers to boot, running the same tests over and over to get data)


Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure you are comfortable with command line Linux coming into the internship, and that you have some scripting language knowledge.


Advice to Management

N/A

Working at this company enabled me to work at a higher grade level then I could have ever imagined


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.)


Would You Recommend

Yes
