Business Group Human Resources Manager (Former Employee) – Chandler, AZ – March 29, 2018
Intel is an amazing place to work - highly recommended! The employees are all very intelligent and educated and make for an excellent work environment. Compensation packages are competitive. Work is all-engaging.
Employees are educated and amazing! Compensation and Benefits are competitive.
Sales & Marketing Intern (Former Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – April 22, 2018
Smart people, lots of opportunity to learn and grow, cutting-edge tech and a lot of cool amenities like most tech companies. It is extremely competitive, but once you're in, it's a place where climbing the ladder is what's expected. Not for everyone, though.
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) – Chandler, AZ – April 20, 2018
Job was easy and exciting but management wasn't so great. Two time I've worked for Intel, one at Octillo site and other at Chandler. Both were completely different jobs, one was production and the other wasn't. All jobs are pretty easy at Intel and a lot of walking.
Amazing place to work, but be mindful of your career path
Program Manager (Former Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – April 20, 2018
Intel is an amazing place to work - just be mindful that they are continually going through reorganizations. Finding a good manager is paramount. Remember that most people will leave their manager, not their job - very true at Intel.
Test Automation Engineer (Internship) (Former Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – April 19, 2018
Intel is such a large company with dozens of different product lines. My experience as an intern could hardly cover the company as a whole. What I experienced was a very large amount of freedom to explore my own problem-solving methods. I had ownership of the tasks and systems I worked on, and people depended on me and trusted me to be an expert in my little corner of the company. I worked with a small team of 8-10 people, and hiring decisions were up to the team leader. I had frequent opportunities (but infrequent compelling reasons) to work with people outside my team, so my time there felt more like working for a small independent company.
Global Supply Management (Current Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – April 16, 2018
Good overall but many bad managers. overall there are a lot of good people trying to do the right thing. Many people get caught up in just checking the box type management. TD engineering create an almost hostile work environment where you can work 20 hours straight and still get yelled at for not completing all your work.
Analyst (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 13, 2018
It's an interesting industry to work in. Intel is filled with A-type personalities so there's a lot of people wanting to do things their way and get all the credit, which creates a less-than-ideal environment to work in for those that aren't a-type.
Senior Systems Administrator (Former Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – April 12, 2018
Although there was a Work/Life Balance program, we would also say "how do you spell Life? Intel. Working at Intel isn't just a job, it is a lifestyle that you commit to. I loved it and it worked well for me. If you commit your Life to Intel, you will be rewarded and promoted for doing so. You will grow in your chosen field, they will help you achieve your goals and the benefits are great. The major risk, Intel is pronto massive layoffs during bad economic cycles which starts with time in the Redeployment Pool, often followed by the layoff during cutback times. Intel is a great place to work, but there are serious trade-offs.
It is a great place to work
The work will become the most important element in your life.
Finance Manager (Current Employee) – Chandler, AZ – April 11, 2018
served in various roles supporting multiple organizations within the company as a finance analyst, team lead, and then as a manager. The company is very successful and has an excellent rotation program to develop their finance organization.
Manufacturing Technician (Current Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – April 10, 2018
Worked with a team of people who self managed each other by when to take breaks and when people who were out of vacation helped pick up the slack if needed. Environment was very positive and everyone tries to help each other.
Constant turnover, and always looking to cut heads
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Oregon – April 10, 2018
Intel used to be great, but their model changed and they treat their employees like a number and not a person. Rough environment to constantly watch your co-workers get slashed just to hire in younger and newer blood. There is a layoff every 2 years
