Great place to work
Phoenix, AZ | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I have been given the opertunity to move where I want in order to improve my knowledge and to get different experiences.

I have flexible hours that allow me to work with my school.

There have been many different activities specific to interns to help us get the full experience.


Downers

This is more specific to my current positoin than other interns might have but I have no idea if I will be able to continue on working with this group after I graduate or not, so I still fill up in the air.


Advice to Potential Interns

They will give you a lot of oppertunity to do different things. If you do not like what you are doing then talk to your manager and they will help you work on something that is interesting to you. I have loved it.


Advice to Management

I do not know if Intel helps students to further their education. I have not seen anything that talks about it. I am graduating with a bachlers and will be taking a break from school for a little while because I do not have the money to continue school. I need to first take care of my family though I want to get a masters.

Fun and challenging time learning new things
Portland, OR | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best parts were working with the team on the mainstream project and seeing my contributions help the team overall.


Downers

The training was spotty at best: I only met with my mentor once, and any practical training I had to ask people to help with.


Advice to Potential Interns

I would say that working at Intel was a great opportunity to gain real-life skills and to experience CPU design.


Advice to Management

Training needs to be dramatically improved, especially in mentoring and practical workplace knowledge. Much of my training outside of the organized courses I had to discover by trial and error as well as asking frequent questions.

4.1 of 5 stars

A good team and communication can make all the difference
Portland, OR | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Great team and people, flexible to interests, requires knowledge from a variety of disciplines in mechanical engineering, flexible schedule, personal feel in a big company.


Downers

Disliked my initial project involving looking at code, small cubicle space (although everyone in the company is now like this), ocassionally start running out of things to do (although you can dig something up)


Advice to Potential Interns

Specifically state the projects that the candidate is wished to help with, recommend review of variety of materials


Advice to Management

Class specific to a group, explaining all of the acronyms used. Explain timecard tool more effectively up front.

This internship was a lot of work, but very rewarding.
Portland, OR | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I was given a lot of real work with opportunities to travel, work with other teams, and leave a lasting impact on out product.


Downers

It could be very stressful at times. The nature of our job meant that there were a lot of emergency situations that required immediate response and sometimes meant long hours.


Advice to Potential Interns

Intel is a great place to learn a lot, but don't expect to float by without working. Everyone here Is expected to contribute and every job matters, which ultimately makes it even more rewarding.


Advice to Management

Keep up the fun things at work. Live music and free ice cream do a lot to boost employee morale.

Yes

Great Company, Great Pay, Great Experience!
Portland, OR | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Chance to see how industry works. Able to network with and learn from full-time employees. Good pay.


Downers

Working with tons of internationals/language gap. Phone conferences with coworkers in other countries during afterhours.


Advice to Potential Interns

Lots of room to find your niche. Being a large company it can be easy to feel a little useless but if you are willing to be proactive then there is tons of fun stuff to find and do.


Would You Recommend

Yes

It's more than a job, it's and adventure with acronyms
Portland, OR | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The sink or swim part. People looking to me for declarative answers and actionable solutions and my managers wanting me to succeed whether or not I stayed with Intel. And i'm not gonna lie: the health care. HUGE!


Downers

The politics of being an Intern. But dealing with the internal politics of the talking furniture here would be a bummer whether or not I was an intern.


Advice to Potential Interns

Only work/intern here if you want to change things for the better and if you can wake up every day and bring that to work. We desperately need genuinely creative and passionate people. We've got enough awkward curmudgeons, thank you.


Advice to Management

Start calling people out when they create busy work for themselves to do in order to prop up a needless silo. Seriously consider the levels of abstraction in business ops and processes and their legitimacy. Please...? Thank you.

Oh, and stop pretending that going to college makes people smart or more potent somehow. Start recruiting grey-hats and elites from the opensource and hacker communities based on raw talent and commitment to a better future.
