Equipment Technical Specialist (Current Employee), Chandler, AZMay 26, 2014
Pros: life balance
Cons: management
Intel is one of the leaders in the High Tech Industry.

A typical day at Intel is either troubleshooting complex electrical/mechanical issues or performing preventive maintenance on PECVD eqyuipment.

Management is all about safety and doing your job right. When it comes to personal improvement they lack the desire to have hardworking people improve – more... their careers. – less

Summer Contract Hire (Former Employee), Hillsboro, ORMay 21, 2014
Pros: stable career field.
Cons: poor work/life balance.
From my short time at Intel, the company and the people were pretty good. The company demands a lot of your time so be prepared to make sacrifices in your social life. Chances are you'll have to work 12+ hours a day even if you're hired to work 40 hours per week.

Great for some, not for others.
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee), Chandler, AZMay 21, 2014
My situation in some regards is not unique. You are hired to fill a particular role. Intel is not particularly inclined to allow you to rise above said position, even if you acquire considerable amounts of education along the way. I did not use the tuition reimbursement program. I paid 100% for my graduate degrees. Mind you, Intel will tell you repeatedly – more... that they are all about getting their people moved up within. Management is very skilled in lip service that sounds really palatable.

I have found that with the internal environment riddled with hiring freezes, layoffs, politics, and HR disasters that are swept over rather than rectified, it made more sense to move on than continue to hit my head on a wall attempting to move up in the ranks. As with many others, if I have any hope of conversion, I will need to depart for a few years and possibly return at another time. Provided there is a reason actually worth returning. – less

Polite Professional work environment
Optoelectronics Design and Process Engineer (Former Employee), Fremont, CAMay 19, 2014
Pros: pin pong table
Cons: slow npi process.
Polite Professional working environment with friendly co-workers.
This division's Culture was insulated from the normal Intel Culture of competition.

Intel had deep pockets and staffed projects well, specially in regards to quality, where there wasn't a hesitation to delay projects and forgo revenue for the purpose of assuring high quality.

MBA Intern (Former Employee), Santa Clara, CAMay 19, 2014
Work/life balance is great, however, you must realize that you are at a large organization that has little room for progression. If you are looking for a company to settle, then this would be ideal.

Equipment engineer /process coordinator (Former Employee), leixlip IrelandMay 14, 2014
Pros: moving from place to place
Cons: moving from place to place
Usually I plan the next days work schedule the previous day but as we all know there are some unforeseen problems that occur , so i try and plan as much as I can for these which is why you are always taking things onboard as each day is different . I have always built up a good rapport with people who I work with but not to the stage of being over familiar – more... and respect is both given and gained . I see nothing hard about the positions i have held as i tend to plan , and this takes away most problems encountered. Seeing projects completed on time is a most enjoyable experience – less

Always a new process!
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee), Chandler, AZMay 9, 2014
Pros: training
Cons: too much change....always in training
During my time at Intel the company expanded a lot. I went from fab 12 to fab 22 to fab 32 and saw the production of fab 42. The processing changed as the CPU developed. It was somewhat hectic work on the manufacturing floor with multi million dollars of product. You were always aware of making a mistake. The benefits were great. If your a team player – more... there is plenty of that. Advancement was available to those who took interest. The company provided schooling everyday. I think the longest time I had a single manager was 1 year as often things change. – less

Intel is a large company, but the group I worked with was fantastic
Intel Graphics Internship (Former Employee), Hillsboro, ORMay 5, 2014
Pros: great people, supportive, brilliant
Cons: commute
As an intern, I was lucky to have Intel be my first experience of a professional environment. The group I worked with opened my mind to what a smart, hard working, friendly collection of people is capable of. By far the most enjoyable part of the job was the great people who work there.
Work consisted of implementing individual tests for a graphics – more... driver test suite, so it was day in day out c language driver api calls.
Everything was new, and so everything was challenging. But I had the opportunity to learn more there than multiple quarters at school. – less

Wonderful place to work but difficult to get a position if contracting.
SW Factory Automation QA Technician (Former Employee), Folsom, CAMay 4, 2014
Pros: friendly and helpful co-workers
Cons: no benefits
The typical day involved a daily meeting followed by coding and server maintenance. Bi-Weekly code push. I learned quite a deal at Intel, although it was a bit of this and a bit of that. Management and co-workers were nearly always helpful and cheerful. The hardest part of the job was working for a year and then not getting a full time position, but – more... this has also allowed me to really expand my resume and job skills. – less
