Treated like a PM by most of my coworkers, talents and skills recognized. Lots of room to execute as I saw fit. Full access to Intel HR and most facilities. Company store is a great perk.
Meat-grinder atompshere. Disparaging comments directed toward interns. Common view of interns as disposable labor force capable only of menial tasks or unwanted activities. Career development nonexistent. Inconsistent benefits for Interns depending on what document you were shown at time of hire.
Advice to Potential Interns
Intel expects everyone to work 24/7, regardless of pay level. You need to be clear with your manager and coworkers that your schedule is set by law at 40 hours. If overtime is required, you must be compensated. Your benefits are unclear and need to be confirmed with HR/Insurance provider before you access them.
Advice to Management
8 hours a day is often spread across all hours from 8am-11pm. Please be aware that expecting an intern to sacrifice all their waking hours during the week is unreasonable at the pay scale offered. Interns receive no career guidance except about working in that division. Interns are routinely given unpalatable assignments that are expected to fail. There is no path to doing anything else but your intern tasks as a FTE. Do not require interns to work past 40 hours at home or in office and require them to falsify timecards to avoid OT. Health benefits offered do not match insurer's actual offering- unpleasant surprise when your policy is locked in.
