Helping change the way Intel works, one intern at a time


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

A good time with friends and hardly any work!


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

Fantastic opportunities if you don't let the work consume you


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

Opportunity for growth and learning available; be prepared to seek understanding on your own and meet unreasonable deadlines.


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

Interning with the world's largest semiconductor company


Uppers

Being treated as an integral part of the team and organization


Downers

Lack of job offer at the end of the internship due to hiring freeze.


Advice to Potential Interns

Consider how likely it is that the company will offer a full time job offer at the end of the internship. An internship is an interview that lasts for a few months. It's terrible to perform extremely well in an interview and yet not be offered the job not because there was someone better, but because you were effectively interviewing for an opening that did not exist.


Advice to Management

With regards to the internship program, it should be changed such that every intern position is backed by a full time position so that if the intern performs well, he gets the full time job. This has the advantage of creating a pipeline of candidates who can be better assessed through real work over a few months rather than a few hours of interview. In addition, there is a smaller likelihood of Intel training interns who join other companies. The above mentioned internship program is practised at Microsoft to great effect, as more than 80% of its interns accept the full time job offer.
