Employee Review

  1. 3.0
    Former Contractor, less than 1 year

    Good company, but not the best team

    May 28, 2020 - Devops Engineer in Toronto, ON
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Big company = fairly stable, benefits are decent, the usual stuff - Lots of opportunity to network internally - Interesting product(s) to work on

    Cons

    - Pay was not great compared to other companies I was considering (chose them due to interest in the product) - For those interested in benefiting from an employee discount, good luck getting products in stock - Corporate culture seemed to favour the "it's not my domain, it's not my problem" mentality and many felt happy putting up red tape as barriers to prevent people from asking things of them - Some team members on my specific team didn't show much investment in the product(s)' success, and didn't make much effort to actually tackle issues and be proactive to improve the team's output. I do want to stress that this was my experience with my team specifically, and does not reflect every individual on that team, or the company as a whole. There were great people I found as well. - The real issue with the former is that especially in newer departments/teams, the management isn't very "settled", and as a result, these sort of issues just get ignored. - People spend more time arguing about the format they're going to present the results of their engineering than arguing about the actual engineering issues they're facing.

    Current Intern, less than 1 year

    Had an overall great time as an intern

    Dec 7, 2021 - SSD Technical in Folsom, CA

    Pros

    - networking: you can set up time to talk with folks from other groups within the company and most folks are more than happy to talk with you - opportunity to grow: there is always something to learn from someone or something - opportunity to extend internship past 6 months

    Cons

    Most folks come in expecting to do some serious coding but it is not what is expected (which isnt necessarily a bad thing but it is a con for those who wish to pursue a line of work in software programming). As an intern you don't exactly get to notice all the cons working at Intel especially if you are there for 6 months
