Intel Intern seeks to change the world from behind the walls of a cubicle

4.6 of 5 stars

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!

Would You Recommend

work life balance

team building/cultural activities

compensation

location

the work i got to do (meaningful and involved responsibilities)

Downers

more ambiguity than needed at first

Advice to Potential Interns

Great compensation, work life balance and opportunity.

Advice to Management

more training would be good, but one of the best organizations I have seen

Trim the fat (too many employees being too conservative)

Would You Recommend

Yes

An internship where you don't stop learning

4.4 of 5 stars

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

The opportunity to leave an impact on the future of computers by developing the technology of tomorrow.

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

Exciting, fun, lot of learning and made new friends.

Phoenix, AZ | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The team I am working with is really good. All my team members are really supportive of me and they helped me to achieve my internship goals. The work I was given was very challenging and I like the work culture here. Intel is a good place to work.

Downers

Its very hard to think of something. May be the weather here in Arizona was the only bad thing.

Advice to Potential Interns

Try to learn as much as possible while on the job. Try to enhance your skill sets, meet new people (networking is important) and also enjoy the work you are doing. Last but not the least, participate in internship events and have a lot of fun.

Advice to Management

Please hire the interns if they perform well. Companies invest a lot in the interns and then not hiring them at the end would be a loss for the companies as well as the interns.

Would You Recommend

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

4.4 of 5 stars

Phoenix, AZ | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

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.

Technical Training, Growth, and Networking highlight the Intel Internship Experience

4.6 of 5 stars

Tempe, AZ | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I like working on a diverse range of projects and the people are enjoyable to work with. I like the benefits such as health insurance, fresh fruit, participation in the employee stock purchase plan and cash bonuses. I like the family activities they provide, like going to movies, the circus, or area attractions. I like the range of technical training you can get.

Downers

I felt the first few weeks were really slow with getting ramped up and ready to be in a position to contribute. There was a lot of mandatory corporate training I had to take. I felt my team could have been better prepared to welcome a new intern and guide me through the first few weeks.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be a team player and very willing to learn new things. Be prepared to navigate a large corporate culture that has its own strengths and weaknesses.

Advice to Management

I'd like to see each new intern/employee set up with a mentor that will take them under their wing for the first couple weeks and help them get oriented in this large company. I think they should spend the majority of their time together those first couple weeks to build trust, answer questions, and just guide them in how things are run, what expectations are made for the intern or new employee, and introduce them to all the key players on a project.

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.

ME at Intel: Learn Statistical Analysis

4.6 of 5 stars

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.

Would You Recommend

Yes

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)
