    I am an atomic layer chemical vapor deposition maintenance and operations technician for Intel Corporation.

    Manufacturing Equipment Technician (Current Employee) Chandler, AZ

    ProsIntel has great starting wages. They are willing to give people with no semiconductor experience a chance. Great Bonuses and Stock purchasing programs.

    ConsHorrible raises that will not compete with inflation no matter how much work you do above your pay grade. Little to no trust in technicians to make a decision, everything requires engineering approval. Too many systems that require lots of work to perform very small tasks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave raises that are higher than inflation. Fix the number of systems we use on a day to day basis and make them “talk” to each other. We don’t need 15 ways to pull the same data.

    In over 13 years at Intel, I've always thought they have been very accomodating to Work Life Balance.

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Chandler, AZ

    ProsWork Life Balance, Competitive Compensation to the rest of the industry. Great benefits.

    ConsIntel is a changing company. In the next 3-4 years it will undergo significant changes and any employee at intel needs to understand that and be able to adapt to changing business needs. Since its a huge corporation, you have to deal with all of the politics and processes that go along with that type of company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI'd recommend that Intel make the big changes sooner rather than later, and empower their employees to make decisions and help drive the company in the right direction.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
