I worked at Intel Corporation

Pros

Interns are treated like regular employees. Lots of great projects to choose from, and opportunity to drive and own some pretty interesting segments.

Cons

None that I could think of, perhaps the fact that campuses are located far apart. However, relocation money is provided.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep making the intern program so much fun! Loved the intern activities and chances to get to know upper management.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation

    Pros

    Intel innovates technically in the US. They are industry leaders in certain areas, particularly manufacturing and high end processor design. They are capable of reinventing themselves when markets deem it necessary. There are tons of talented people working there.

    Cons

    Too many people. Everything becomes a battle for territory. Many jobs are extremely narrowly defined. Work culture can be downright hostile. As with any big company you need the right manager, the right position, and the right group to get a good experience.

    Pros

    Intel allows freshly minted engineers to put their money where their mouth is and innovate. For someone who enjoys self guided work, there is a lot of opportunity to demonstrate excellence and receive meritous acknowledgement of your contribution. You will have a chance to prove yourself and then some.

    Cons

    The quick turns on a product cycle lead meant constant long hours for all engineering staff that frankly didn't end. Pagers and after hours calls are a practical reality of the job. There is remarkably little engagement with the factories until it's time for a tech transfer, which dissociates some of the practical decision making from the engineering novelty. Also, it appeared that there was relatively high "job shift" for incoming engineers to roles outside of development due to a high rate of early burn out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's far more expensive to retrain and recruit talent than it is to describe job functions where people are incentivized to develop within their roles. Consider rotating manufacturing and development engineering roles with each process revision to ensure CIP efforts are driven back through the process, and "repeat" problems are mitigated- not just documented.
