"I worked as a contractor for Intel inside the fab starting in 2020. I converted to a blue badge in 2021. You will notice that the overwhelming majority of good Intel reviews are from software developers or people working in an office. If you are considering working in one of Intel's manufacturing facilities, you should completely disregard those reviews. Intel is, on the whole, the worst company I have ever worked for. The benefits are pretty good. The pay is low. There are lots of unmotivated, lazy people so it is easy to coast if that's what you want to do. If you are a motivated, driven person this is a horrible place to work. This place is kind of like the military but with nepotism: instead of just having to worry about cronyism and having enough time served to advance, you also have to worry if some managers spouse or child is applying for the same job you are - they WILL get it. Management is a joke. First line managers, in my direct experience with three of them, have zero technical skills and typically no managerial skills either, but they love to put the "micro" in "manager". The longer they have worked at Intel, the worse they tend to be. Mid-level managers are completely removed from the fab and have no idea what is going on. Senior leadership operates on another plane of existence that infrequently crosses into reality. Training is haphazard and OSHA regulations are frequently violated, especially on the severely understaffed night shifts. I trained five people on LOTO procedures without being properly certified myself before I was made aware of the requirement - no one in my managerial chain noticed or if they did notice, they didn't care. I only found out when I finally went to get a peer trainer certification that A) I shouldn't have trained those people, the senior certified techs should have been the ones to do it and B) I shouldn't have been forced to do most of the PMs and other work that I was doing since I wasn't properly certified."
"It's a good entry-level job for anyone who wants to interface with engineering products and get cleanroom experience."
"It's a good job for people looking to get experience with interfacing with engineering products and getting in the cleanroom."
"over 4 years at Intel was a good time for me overall. Provide good work-life balance, helpful management, not hierarchical where you feel it's uncomfortable to reach out to the upper manager."
"Intel is an excellent company to work with a great work-life balance"
"I've worked at Intel for 6 years."
"Great company, Great culture"
"Great Place to Work and Good benefits."
"I had an internship at Intel, OR. The problem I tackled was a very involved problem that had an impact on the development of future generations of devices. It was a really fun challenge that required the use of my skill set but also it needed me to improvise, come up with solutions in a short time and rethink the approach several times. It was extremely fun and enlightening."
"Worked at the company for fifteen years. Fast paced work environment, available resources very poorly used."
"Great people, great environment to learn and grow as an Engineer. Overall, I loved interning there"
"I work at Intel. It's a great company for the R&D and innovation."
"I've worked with Intel Corporation for 1 year and 6 months, The company have multiple good benefits, but speaking from grow opportunities, it is very poor. Intel is Hiring people from different major background (even Graduate from Business and administration can be hired as a Process Engineer) which defeats the true meaning of being Engineer. There were multiple cases when totally different people claims the projects they are not related to and get credits for those projects leaving the true owner of projects behind the curtains and managers did not react to this at all, This shows the truly image of how it is difficult to grow within this company as an Engineer."
"I have been working for Intel and is a company that does wonderful technology and break barriers. I'm impressed for their inclusion, customer obsessed, Transparency, and Quality"
"Great company and lots of room for growth. You will be recognized for your performance and going above and beyond."
