Productive with satisfying results
Systems Validation Engineer (Current Employee) –  Folsom, CAOctober 22, 2018
Typical day involves coding, validation, working with different teams to produce a test tape for HVM.
There are a lot of learning tools to broaden your knowledge.
Management is pushes for a trade off between quantity and quality.
Workplace culture is friendly, but with a paranoia for job security.
The most enjoyable part of the job is producing a quality test tape for manufacturing that produces high yielding results

Good place to work, bad place to stay.
Install Qual tool owner (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZOctober 18, 2018
Intel is good place to work...if you aren't several tens of thousands of dollars in debt for degree you may or may not be using. The education requirements for a technician job is absurd, a high school grad could do the job just fine AND benefit from the education program. The benefits are great and management is decent.

Workers should take care to not stay in one area for too long. A 'specialist' is a nice way to say pigeon holed and when you land there getting out become difficult.

Layoff occur at fairly regular intervals and who gets laid off is generally random. One time it was 'if you've been here for less than five years', another time was actually based on performance(rare), and still another time was 'if you've been here for 15+ years'.
Pros
Work/life balance, education reimbursement, good pay
Cons
Workers are pigeon holed, layoffs target good and bad performers

Fast-paced, multi-task job
Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Hillsboro, OROctober 17, 2018
Admin Assistants are expected to be Jack of all Trades - calendar management, typing, scheduling meetings, making travel arrangements, dealing with customers (internal and external), work closely with executive level admins managers, etc..

Company does offer several benefits to employees and fun-oriented events.

I enjoyed the people interaction and the days were never repetitive -- something new every day.
Pros
Location close to home
Cons
Sometimes too busy to take breaks/lunches

Upper management need to make up their mind
Machine Learning Engineer (Current Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAOctober 15, 2018
Intel has been trying to venture into new market segments. However upper management doesn't seem to have the patience to wait for the outcome. Each time Intel spends millions of dollars to buy a new startup and then cancels it after few years. Same thing goes with products. In my previous team 3 projects in our department got cancelled in a year. It's a waste of resources and big tank on morale.

Furthermore other companies like Google, Facebook, Alibaba and Apple are making their own chip and are heavily recruiting people (from Intel). However Intel doesn't match the compensation from these companies, so attrition rate has become a pretty big issue recently.

The good part of being a big company is it is rather easy to move around the company to different job functions. I know a lot of people switched from backend to frontend to architect, from engineer switched to marketing or data science. However it seems that across departments there are just way too many meetings. There is no time for deep work. This is probably part of the down side of being such a big company.
Pros
Good work life balance, easy to move around
Cons
Compensation, lack of sense of achievement (because products keep getting delayed or cancelled), too many meetings

Workplace bullying by supervisors is common
Senior Product Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAOctober 15, 2018
The supervisors are not really involved with the team and did not do much to gather feedback about leadership. The team was treated very badly. There was a lot of yelling and name calling during meetings and when the team members raised an issue with the HR, they were just dismissed without proper investigation. Workplace bullying was not only tolerated but promoted.

Allot of multitasking
Manufacturing Technician (Current Employee) –  HillsboroOctober 12, 2018
A lot of times you are multitasking with no help, but at times you can relax. The more efficient you are the less work you end up doing. You are accountable for your own work, get it done on time and there will be no problems.
Pros
Free fruit and drinks
Cons
Needs more people backing up others

Fun team to work with
Process Engineer (Current Employee) –  Hillsboro, OROctober 12, 2018
The company is the safest place I have ever worked. They value a safe work environment and stopping the job when you feel uncomfortable is not shunned upon. I appreciated that and having the open door policy to speak with any level of management is a plus as well.

Hideous place to work
Sr. Instructor (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAOctober 11, 2018
Cannibalistic work environment. Chaotic management with no real understanding of human interaction.

Only work there if you have a desire to lose your mind.

I knew it was a bad fit the first day.
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to list

Contract Workers treatment mediocre, Permenent treated well
SSD Development and Validation Technician (Former Employee) –  Folsom, CAOctober 11, 2018
As a contract worker, I would say that the treatment is generally unfair, but not poor. Contract workers receive most of the blame when a project fails. Permanent employees are treated well, however, often with quarterly events and trips, free family events, and fruit and beverages.
Pros
Free fruit, beverages, events, trips
Cons
Contractors treated unfairly
