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

Great team work at Intel. I felt like I am feeting in and I am doing meaningful work.

4.3 of 5 stars

Sacramento, CA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Working on the on-going projects and quality of work. Not side-lined with some irrelevant work as an Intern.

Compensation and bonuses.

The company does some of the best work in the world. They are the pioneers and excellent work environment.

Would You Recommend

Learning While Actively Participating in Projects

4.3 of 5 stars

Sacramento, CA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

the work I get to do, intern events, friendliness and approachability of my team and fellow engineers, flexible hours

location - how early everything closes in Folsom, CA

Intel really puts their interns first, trying to make all of us feel welcome and encourage us to want to stay for full time

more clear on how frequently one-on-ones are supposed to occur

Development

Downers

Advice to Potential Interns

Advice to Management

make set up go faster.

4.3 of 5 stars

Portland, OR | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I really enjoy the people I work with. My team is very supportive of each other and are genuinely nice people.

Downers

Poor organization, minimal direction, simple job.

Advice to Potential Interns

Try to get more details about daily tasks you will be performing to make an educated assessment of whether you want to join that team.

Advice to Management

Don't hire college graduates, especially with an engineering degree. This job is very basic and could be done with a humanities degree.

Would You Recommend

No

Working experience which aligns with my educational goals.

4.4 of 5 stars

Portland, OR | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Everyone here is very approachable and for the most part, easy to talk to. I think communication is one of those important pieces that most people take light of and it really helps to accomplish my work. Also, there is always constant change, which grows to challenge me as an individual.

Downers

My learning style preference is to have clear direction in meeting the goals. Sometimes, I do not have that clear direction. However this enables a challenge for me to navigate on my own to figure out how to do things on my own. If I really feel stuck, my manager is helpful in assisting me to bridge my gaps.

Advice to Potential Interns

Get outside of your comfort zone. While in school, you can go through a rigorous material that is focused in one subject. However, during your internship you will experience how many people from different backgrounds work together to accomplish goals. If your able to step outside your comfort zone and assist where needed, I think it would help to make you stand outside the crowd when your applying for a full-time regular position.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Working at this company enabled me to work at a higher grade level then I could have ever imagined

4.4 of 5 stars

Portland, OR | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Respect of my mentors and peers was the best aspect. So often in school you are treated like dirt. You are herded through undergraduate studies and then you leave college with a large amount of debt and mental anguish. Since in this internship my opinion matters and my thoughts actually impacted development it taught me to choose my words carefully and contribute precisely whereas school teaches you to scream as loud as you can until someone is annoyed enough to listen.

Downers

Everything is fantastic. Learning the culture was difficult at first but after six months you understand it fairly well.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you are looking for a challenging and rewarding internship I highly recommend Intel Corporation. We do everything from microprocessors to autonomous vehicle research.

Advice to Management

Compensation was low for the level of responsibility I was operating at. My peers say I "Run programs like an E5 engineer" if this is true I should be compensated for this level of responsibility. There are no performance evaluations and no focals. So we never get feedback on long term internships like mine (3 years.)

Would You Recommend

Yes

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.

Advice to Management

N/A

Would You Recommend

Yes

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

4.4 of 5 stars

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

Yes
