It was a great company, it needs to find itself again
Director (Former Employee) –  DublinAugust 19, 2018
Working there for so long was a fantastic run. Under BK they chose to burn the place down and that's unfortunate in many ways. Can it be recovered ?
Pros
Great work experience and can-do culture
Cons
Work life balance doesn't exist

Penetration Tester (Former Employee) –  Folsom, CAAugust 17, 2018
It's a great place to work - I should know, I worked there nearly 15 years! A lot of promoting from within, and usually worked with a lot of smart guys and a lot of great people.
Pros
Ability to move around the company
Cons
Not super flexible work schedule

Gaming Professionally (Former Employee) –  at homeAugust 16, 2018
I did not work for Intel. Intel paid for my flight and my hotel to play professionally after qualifying for a video game major all the way in Poland. This experience is only given to a handful of people as it requires intense competition.

Senior management capabilities are very low
Senior Program manager (Current Employee) –  Haifa, TA, JerusalemAugust 14, 2018
A place that does not see the employees at all but as unskilled worker only. The managers are not empowering, they are always hurting and pressing. There is no personnel HR management at all. Everything should be done by the computer directly to Poland, no one looks at you and the managers do what they want

MODULE TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORAugust 14, 2018
Management arrogant. Management not employee friendly, and does not take employees side into account. Management looking for reason to express there power over techs. Engineer are no open to feed back from module techs, they also like to impose there position and power over the module techs.

Software Engineer Intern (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAAugust 14, 2018
Intel Cooperation is one of the more fundamental companies is silicon valley. They have a little ways to go before they are able to compete with the newer culture of technology and its employees. It is still a good launching platform for most individuals starting their IT career.

Fun work environment
Software Engineer/Intern (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAAugust 14, 2018
A typical day at work involves working on projects with my team members, going to the cafeteria to grab a cup of tea/coffee or fruits with team members while discussing ways to move forward with a project, going to the gym during my break to stay healthy, and meetings with my manager and team members.
I learned the value of having experienced team members willing and ready to share their knowledge and understanding without hesitation.
Pros
Free drinks and fruits, free gym memberships, healthcare.

Process Engineer (Former Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORAugust 13, 2018
A great place to work for if one is willing to work hard and succeed.

Work schedule is sometime demanding but very rewarding. Bonus and salary is also good. You get to work with one of the smartest minds

Excellent, just not for me.
Manufacturing Technician (Current Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORAugust 13, 2018
Great company with competitive benefits. People are nice, however career advancement is a non starter without at least a masters degree to even move into low level management. That said a typical day is spent behind a computer for 12 hours. The hardest part of the job is the time away from family, especially on night shift, with no option to move shifts without doctors direction. Management is also hit and miss. The best part of the job is the people who work at Intel. For the most part they are a great community of folks from around the world with very few bad apples.

Productive, but not fun place to work.
Physical Design Engineer (Current Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORAugust 11, 2018
The company overall is very strong among the Semiconductor industries. Semiconductor innovation happened here. This is a cutting edge technological company for the future.

However, as far as culture is concern, this is not the company that keeps the balance between work place and home. It expects more that what it should have been.

Job security is close to zero. This is not the working environment I would prefer.
Pros
.Learning opportunity
Cons
Lack of job security

Good place to work if they could make you feel secure...
Lab Management/Operations and SAP Analyst (Former Employee) –  Folsom, CAAugust 11, 2018
Good place to work if they could make you feel secure. Layoffs are the norm and the culture has suffered due to the instability. Company culture is all about the bottom line and employees don't matter as much as they once did to them. It is common place to lay off long time employees and then hire them back shortly thereafter as contract employees to make their headcount numbers look better to appease shareholders.

Factory Direct Materials Commodity Manager (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZAugust 9, 2018
Under BK, Intel got rid of a lot of senior people and had the people that remained do the job the senior person was doing, plus the one they already had.
Pros
Good pay and benefits
Cons
Always on

Organizational Change Analyst /OCM Communications (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZAugust 8, 2018
There is no way to move things along quickly at Intel because of the number of layers of management that prohibit nimble evolution. To save money Intel laid off their most knowledgeable managers and then over allocated those that were left.


Workplace culture - isolating
Pros
a desk and chair
Cons
micro-management, layers and layers of management

User Experience Data Analyst (Former Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORAugust 8, 2018
I enjoyed the diversity in the workplace. There was never a dull moment. However, I see people work their head off, but doesn't get the recognition they deserve from management. Project based layoffs were always on people's minds.
Pros
Free food for blue badges only
Cons
Green badges get's treated like nothing

Senior Automations Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZAugust 8, 2018
Excellent benefits along with middle of the road pay structure. Intel tries to be a conscious employer and not over hire to try and protect what permanent employees they have so when a downturn happens they don't have to lay-off to many people.


Just like most companies as they move from being small/medium nimble they have grown to be large and sluggish...Risk taking in the younger years has been replace by caution and a bit of bloat.

Over all still an excellent company to work for.
Pros
Free Gym
Cons
none

Field Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZAugust 8, 2018
The management system is a different than what I had been exposed to prior to Intel. It was at times confusing but overall it always seemed like an invisible force guiding along. My peers were more flexible and open to conversation. There were a lot of former military service members employed there. The job culture rewards honesty and commitment. There is something to be said about the "work-life balance" as the long work hours allow for corporate work weeks to be split evenly between shifts so half the week is to working and the other half is to relaxing.
Pros
money, security, people
Cons
rigid mgmt, ex-military jobworks

Sr. Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORAugust 8, 2018
I have worked at Intel as a direct employee and eight times as a contractor. They treat contingent workers as second class citizens but working as direct employees has its neagatives as well.
