A learning experience you get paid for!
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Learning new things, meeting new contacts in the field, and making money.


Downers

Not as much training or direction as I thought and my assigned "buddy" or "mentor" was not around much to answer questions or teach me, but then I got to make my own tasks and learn on my own.


Advice to Potential Interns

There are a lot of fun activities to participate in, especially for interns and recent college grads. The work experience and contacts you make are an invaluable asset as well as having been at such a big name company.


Advice to Management

Training and opportunity for full time employment.

Great work, great benefits, and a great environment! Plus free fruit and drinks!
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Real life job experience, great pay, fun team, great friends.


Downers

Smallish grey cubicle.


Advice to Potential Interns

Great benefits and a great name to add to a resume. Assuming you don't get stuck on one of the few crazy teams you have great co workers who are very friendly and willing to help you out. You work on real products(usually) that are put to use while you are there. You own your project and are responsible for making it work.


Advice to Management

It can be a bit lonely and rough the first few weeks. Make sure that the interns have a list of things they can start working on right away. I had a whole week of downtime where I couldn't find stuff to do because my manager wasn't prepared for me.

Great people. Work hard play hard attitude. Great place to work. A leader in industry.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Ability to apply my knowledge to real company problems and make a real difference. Working with great people. Learning about all the different opportunities for growth at the company. Internal engineering college just for company employees to keep their technical skills relevant going into the future.


Downers

Relocation function was a bit difficult to work with. Relocation was a binned processed and actual distance versus the companies interpretation fell into two different bins. The lower bin was still enough to drive myself to the internship but the outcome was a bit unexpected. The relocation function wasn't able to fix the issue so I had to take it to my boss who agreed to correct the issue.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you can get an internship at this company I am certain you will be very happy with your experience, your pay, and your future opportunities for employment and career and educational growth. Different interviewers will ask different questions so be prepared for both very technical as well as very standard managerial / human resource questions. You may get one interviewer just asking technical questions and another just interested in questioned related to his/her own business needs or someone asking just generic HR type questions. No matter the case, make sure you communicate your knowledge of your field and of your ability to apply yourself to their business needs as well as the fact that you can work in the sorts of circumstances that the position calls for be it group or individual contributor etc...


Advice to Management

Relocation didn't do the best of jobs and was not able to directly deal with having underpaid my relocation. Calculations are made based on driving routes not actual distances and relocation services calculates travel based on movement from one metro area to another even if university address and internship location are easily available. My travel was just over 500 miles and was binned by the relocation function as 100-499 miles. The internship relocation form implies that the distance from the university to the business site will actually be used. This is not actually the case. If calculation of distances from addresses is too difficult for the relocation function the relocation form should be updated to clarify that the distance will be from local university metro area to the metro area the business position is located in. This change would avoid disappointed interns after they have turned in their relocation paperwork.

I was moved between several mangers between getting the assignment and my arrival. It took a few weeks to get my actual position to reflect my place in the electronic access and management structure. Getting access to restricted systems would have been much faster if EAM had reflected my actual manager upon my arrival instead of weeks after my arrival.

My efforts paid of really well
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Pay, Location, Full-time opportunity


Downers

Can't really complain - but it would have been perfect if my job expectations could have been better conveyed to me


Advice to Potential Interns

Intel is a gaint, with a great diversity in the job-spec. Make sue you get into the group/dept/team you want to.


Advice to Management

Again, can't really complain - but it would have been awesome if Intel promotes knowledge sharing. I feel that there is a lot of re-invention-of-the-wheel and duplication of efforts going on t Intel. There should be organization wide web-application which lists down all the internal tools and source code.
