I really liked my job. I worked there for 4 years. The work schedule was good for me. The compensation was great. The work culture was also very competitive. The bonus was good but the stress was also very intense at time.
Contract Engineer (Former Employee), Folsom – April 16, 2014
Pros: good telecommuting / remote work options / attention to ergonomic issues was excellent.
Cons: diversity is highest priority when hiring/promoting.
Some aspects were very enjoyable especially the company wide Android build system. Most people were kind and polite to work with - however the perspective most employees was Intel only. They has never worked anywhere else and knew no other way to do anything besides the Intel way. The Intel way might actually be the best way to do something but there – more... was not a broad thought process that there were a lot of different ways to do one thing. – less
Lithography Manufacturing Technician (Current Employee), Hudson, MA – April 15, 2014
Pros: benefits and pay
Cons: absolutely unflagging adherence on metrics to gauge performance-no grey area here.
Increasingly high expectations to performance as you as promoted through the manufacturing grades-but not without reward if you are up to the challenge.Intel says it best to their employees-"you own your own success".Some of the best managers I have ever come across and some of the worst-this should be expected in an organization this size-because we – more... are all trained in Intel culture does not mean everyone will live up to it.People after all,are still people.Working compressed overnight shifts is quite difficult and your physiology never truly acclimates,but they offer generous differential as incentive.Learning about people and cultures from the world over is the best thing about Intel-they embrace and perpetuate diversity!All in all I would encourage anyone who wants to work in semiconductors to shoot for the top and that means Intel-not for the faint of heart though. – less
Intel has brought many wonderful challenges and they will let you grow and learn as much as you want to. Development training is always an option as long as your are open-minded. Intel hires the best of the best and you meet a great diversity of folks who are smart!

I was allowed to skew my hours to take my daughter to school but in the end I was told that it hindered my growth. I enjoyed working with my co-workers, everyone did their job and we also were good at covering for one another when there was a vacation coming up. I enjoyed working with the manufacturing technicians. I always learned so much from them – more... everyday. – less
