Fantastic opportunities if you don't let the work consume you
Portland, OR | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects of the internship were the opportunities to meet so many unique and talented people and the amazing culture surrounding Intel.


Downers

The cons were every day that I stayed for 12+ hours because of the high pressure to meet deadlines and working in a small RF shielded lab where not much sunlight gets in.


Advice to Potential Interns

Apply here! Intel is not going anywhere anytime soon. It's a great place, and most importantly, a stable place.


Would You Recommend

Yes

A good time with friends and hardly any work!
San Jose, CA | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The work expected of me was not beyond me. I got to learn how the company plans and executes projects. I learnt that everything is an iterative process and a constant learning potential.


Downers

I was not given enough work in the first three months and when I did get work later on it ended up being repetitive


Advice to Potential Interns

It is a huge company with a lot of opportunities. There are a lot of talented people around for you to talk to and network with


Advice to Management

Interns could have more important work given to them. Work hours are fine and compensation is good if not the best. Training is subjective to team's needs.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Opportunity for growth and learning available; be prepared to seek understanding on your own and meet unreasonable deadlines.
Columbia, SC | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Relevant industry applications.


Downers

Pressured to accept extended internships with the promise of flexibility for school. However, I was constantly pressured to prioritize my short term internship over my long term academic goals required by the job.


Advice to Potential Interns

This job is not conducive to families or academic priorities.


Advice to Management

Listen to your employees. They are the ones doing the work and know what is needed to accomplish the tasks.


Would You Recommend

No

Helping change the way Intel works, one intern at a time
Portland, OR | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

my assignment, creative control, lack of meetings, some flexibility, pretty good supervisor


Downers

Supervisor sometimes chaotic and difficult to work with. Cubicle environment had not been updated to new Intel standards and was not conducive to good design or collaboration.


Advice to Potential Interns

Intel is going through a lot of changes right now. Different teams are affected by these changes in different ways. Intel also goes about work in a different way than other companies, likely due to their unique business model and focus on silicon. Be sure to research the group you will be working in, as it can affect your work drastically. Intel is a massive company.


Advice to Management

Work environment. Better laptops/tech for interns. Compensation is good. Training could be better (not much professional training - again, probably differs by group).


Would You Recommend

Yes

3.1 of 5 stars

simple human factors internship evaluation
San Jose, CA | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

availability of senior researchers for guidance and interaction, support (financial and intellectual) in research process, flexibility on project timelines, recognition of effort large and small


Downers

commute and less flexibility for working from home, little digression by intern on assigned projects


Advice to Potential Interns

Difficult circumstances are one of your best opportunities to demonstrate commitment and integrity. Stick out a tough assignment, do your best and this will serve you well.


Advice to Management

Be prepared to help new hires learn the ligo and company procedures as well as culture. Actively ensure that new and temporary workers have access to the tools they need to do work ie. wiki permissions, off site email access, software tools, inclusion on key list servs and invitation to important meetings -- outsiders will need help with these things


Would You Recommend

Yes
