Great place to work

Featured review

Intel Corporation selected this as a representative review
Very technical and interesting job. The teams within my department were bright and a pleasure to work with, for the most part. I would recommend this job for fresh college graduates looking to gain good engineering work experience in the semiconductor industry.

very average boring work place

Intel is not for someone who wants to think out of the box and has ambition to grow.Pay is okay, Management is fine if you don't want promotion or pay raise.

Coworkers were great

I like the intent that the managers had. They tried to ensure everyone received what they needed. Coworkers were great to he around and the work was easy.Benefits were fantastic but the pay was on the low end.

Production is top priority; training only happens rarely, yet you are expected to know

a typical day starts at 0740 am or 1940 pm with pass down meeting of what happened on the previous shift and what needs to be done. The senior employees pick and choose what they are doing and the rest of the duties are handed out to junior employees. As a technician, you will ask and ask for training from senior personnel and they will do it if they like you, when they are in a good mood. If you are an engineer, then you will receive links to learn your module and an advisor that wants you to figure it out and will give you HINTS on how to solve your issues. You will attend many Teams meetings and after 3 months you will be required to understand the specifics and how to resolve them. As a junior engineer after certification, you will go on an on call rotation which is 24 hours a day for 7 consecutive days. Essentially you will sit in front of a couple screens all day and watch the production events and also be given action required (ARs) projects. Timing is everything and you need to immediately engage with the floor if there is a production abort or tool problem. When you are new or an engineer for the first five years, you will be required to go on call every other week. You will not have time to go out and you will sleep with your work phone by your bed. There will be a morning meeting at 0740, so you will need to always be online by at least 0600 am and look at production details that recently occurred, problems, consumable changes, overall preventive maintenance schedules for all your tools. I was in CMP so we had approximately 100 tools for the techs -

Great Company

Good company too much work. First day at work there was an orientation and they teach you everything you need to know but right after you get lots of tasks

The work day can be very gruling, but err go the nature of the business. You get back what you put into it. Intel has a Culture of Caring, which means they truly care about their employees and their contractors. I was a Construction EHS Engineer for 3 years, and 2 years prior to that, an EHS Engineer contractor. Work/Home life can be very challenging. It can be easy to get caught up in your work so much that your home life can have an impact. But it is critical for you to recognize this and speak with your manager, as that balance needs to be in place. Intel Management (the good ones at least) will ensure you maintain that balance.

Can be a great place to work

When the company is making money things are great. When the stock price dips, so does employee pay and benefits at the bottom but the execs always get their raises and promotions. As for the day to day, it just depends where you work. My module specifically has fresh management and engineers who lack experience. Combine that with being intentionally short staffed without backfilling positions and HR’s inability to fire teammates who actively break rules and drag the team down, it creates a lot of strife within a team.

Productive and very fun place to work

Working at Intel was a great oppotunity to see the professional people organize around a common cause to create something great. The management had an open door policy for addressing issues with the employees.

Decent job, nothing else to really say. Enjoyed it a lot. Pay was average, managment was very nice. Working hours were really flexible. No complaints from me.

As an engineer, this seems like a good place for one's first job after school. Seems like there are limited growth pathways within a single module.

The job can be stressful where formal training is glossed over and one is thrown into the fire of tool owner responsibility quite quickly. Fortunately it is not hard to find knowledgable and generous peer trainers/coworkers to lend a helping hand, however one needs to try and remain calm in this fast paced job. Management quality varies greatly between modules, I'm afraid. Great first job out of school for folks interested in semiconductor industry.


Health benefits, base pay for PhDs is decent


Demanding at times which can be stressful

Working at Intel is very nice and relaxing.

What is the best part of working at the company?All the employees are so nice. Just don’t work for their temp agency Kelly services because you will not get your unemployment. Always read the fine writing on all those zillion papers you sign. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Walking so much. Sweating in those suits and having heavy objects to pull down a long isle when the wheels don’t roll. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?There is a nice range of cultures and the work environment was pleasant and relaxing. What is a typical day like for you at the company?Couple hours in the fab for to check into your station and check work passdown then breakfast and back up to finish orders or pull deliveries to work stations. Talk to mechanic and then lunch. Finish day by cleaning around work stations and return orders. Checking all work stations for any needed orders in every plant.

Engineering teams care about production numbers more than employee health (mental or physical).Management and engineering teams will target you for reprisals and harrassment if you don't agree 100% with their insanity.Management will play favorites andthey will give you demeaning work in order to keep you "busy"

Intense Culture focused on improvement

Fast paced and tough to keep up with. On call rotations are difficult to maintain work life balance. Great pay and benefits with opportunities for advancement. But difficult to keep up with.

Challenging but Supportive

Great teams that help support you through the internship, but still challenging enough that forces you to grow and learn. Overall, the company provides good training and mentorship to help you secure a full-time offer through the program.

Productive and pretty easy going environment in the department I worked in which was site maintenance.

What is the best part of working at the company?Great benefits, time off and pay. Great support for learning What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Long hours and the work can be mentally draining and sometimes difficult.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Good, usually supportive but can be a bit overwhelming and combative at timesWhat is a typical day like for you at the company?A lot of hurry up and wait as machines and computer systems do lots of the physical work for you and your job is to monitor them to ensure they are running correctly. There is physical labor involved though.

Ok place to work if you're not a contractor.

Contractors are treated like rated employees. Lots of office politics that causes certain projects to be frozen or move slow. Office camaraderie often times not genuine to make employees feel welcomed and desirable. For the most part, most people just wanted to get their work done and go home.

Great place to work

Lazy work life balance. Sufficient pay. Not enough work to keep you busy. Mangers are not careful and dont care what you are doing. Its hard to get real work
