    Amazing people and work atmosphere. Fun and balanced. Great compensation

    Cons

    Cons

    Unguided, not enough people to interact with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nice to have more people in group on-site. Should segregate people who need to talk on the phone often from those trying to concentrate and program.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation as an intern

    Pros

    You can work with state of the art technology. On top of that the compensation is great. I worked at the Oregon site and loved the place. You basically go to office with 17,000 people everyday. Various kind of people are working having different kinds of skillset. People are generally very helpful.

    Cons

    Sometimes long bureaucracy makes things difficult.

    I worked at Intel Corporation as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very smart people here and friendly atmosphere where people are very willing to help each other out. The ramp up process is fairly quick

    Cons

    Compensation was not as great as I hoped. The Oregon location doesn't have much to do around. Naturally with the size of the company, it's hard to feel like you contribute anything

    Former Intern - Front End Design Automation in Hillsboro, OR

    I worked at Intel Corporation as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I was payed fairly well ($40 / hr). The culture is definitely old-school, but Intel is making a huge effort to be a "great place to work". Overall, I'd definitely say it is a great place to work. Interns have a major upper-hand when it comes to getting full-time offers post-internship.

    Cons

    The projects I worked on were mostly toy projects. The size and complexity of Intel's organization contributes to a pretty substantial onboarding process, which can be overwhelming. There are great opportunities at Intel if you can learn to navigate the company.
