Great place to work but can be very demanding at times.
Senior Process Engineer (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZOctober 14, 2015
Overall great company to work for. Nice pay, stock, and benefits package. My module worked hard but it was such a nice team of people to work with, led by an awesome manager.
Pros
Pay, free snacks and drinks, cutting edge technology, diversity in the work force, and #1 in employee safety.
Cons
Individual cubes were replaced with open area environments making it hard to concentrate, last minute deadlines requiring 24x7 working hours from time to time, and shortage of engineers in most modules.

Supply chain analyst and Product Owner (Former Employee) –  Chandler, ArizonaOctober 13, 2015
Overall, I really did love working here. The benefits are great and for a long time, the company was very flexible with work/life balance. However, as we moved into 2014 ish, those benefits were taken away and many people really felt the burden of the balance. They do still offer some great volunteer opportunities and try to keep moral as high as they can. The manager can really make or break the experience you have there. I got some really great experience though and met some really great people. Overall, it's a great company, especially for new to the market folks.

Gets worse as you go up in importance
Intel - PTD Yield Engineer (Current Employee) –  HillsboroOctober 11, 2015
Techs are treated great, high pay and work 3&4 day weeks. Job is a little boring, but they are well compensated financially and with time off.

Engineers are treated badly, make less than techs when adjusted for work hours and are on call 24/7 365 - no work/life balance.
The work is babysitting tools that break all the time and babysitting vendors who fix the tools and being called at all hours of the night to dispo tools failing. The R&D aspect of the job is squeezing every last die out of a wafer "called layer work".

Group leaders are treated even worse than engineers....On call for the fleet of tools, little salary increase- maybe, but many make less than incoming RCGs. GLs get lots of responsibilities, but little pay increase and they will be on site in the fab on the weekends - every weekend.

I do not approve of the CEO because a good business man would not allow the heart of Intel "PTD" to treat engineers so badly. A 60 billion dollar company can't afford to hire a hundred engineers to put the fab on shift......So they deal with 50% attrition by year 2. A lot of money is wasted on retraining RCGs who quite after 1-2 yrs.
Pros
free fruit
Cons
brutal pagers, no advancement

Great Company
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZOctober 10, 2015
Hope to return in the future. Moved out of state where no location due to personal reasons, otherwise would have stayed there indefinitely. So many opportunities as you can move groups and sites within the company. Workforce is diverse allowing opportunities to always find help when needed or a lunch buddy. Most Managers share defined expectations and assist with projects as needed, but do not hover. Flexible working hours with ability to work from home if needed occasionally.

Great Place to Work
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) –  Rio Rancho, NMOctober 1, 2015
An awesome company to work for, Intel makes sure you love what you do. Benefits galore and supportive management. Wanna go back to school, just maintain a certain GPA and Intel will pay for your schooling. Wanna visit Ireland? Just keep up with this fast pace industry and you could be making the latest and greatest product in one of several countries outside the U.S. Only wanna work half the year but get paid for the whole year? Yep, compressed workweek schedules. I could go on and on about this company and they are always seeking new, bright talent.
