Stressful if you can’t take pressure...
General Operative (Former Employee) –  Leixlip, County Kildare4 December 2019
A stressful job in that you had to be always striving for next thing.
This is fine when young & eager as we all were but when you know the job well you just want to go in and do a very good job. This wasn’t the culture.
More better more & then some more or you don’t survive or progress.
That’s fair enough once you’ve accepted it .

Equipment Technician Engineer (Former Employee) –  Fab and Subfahb11 October 2019
The Intel blue badge employees think that they are above all else. Poor management and business practices. The Intel blue badge employees are just out of college and university they think that is real life

Tough place to work
Orbital Welder/Pipe fitter (Former Employee) –  IE19 September 2019
Always a slow start to the week and as a contractor there you are treated like a lower class citizen!

No job security and no progression.

No learning curve just get in a lash pipework in a quick as possible so you they can let you go at end of project

Interesting environmental and corporate culture
Cross Module Support (Former Employee) –  Kildare21 August 2019
Day to day work is very detail driven as would be expected. This is not suited to everyone.
Anything you don't know going in will be taught to you. Anything you did know going in will be re-taught to you the intel way.
Some aspects of working in intel can be amazing and the information, technology and knowledge you have to work with is second to none, however, there is also a lot of repetition and documentation to content with.
As with any corporation of intels size there is a constant stream of meetings and red tape to contend with, and innovation will either be encouraged or completely snuffed out depending on the departments management culture.
Like any work place, there are pro's and con's, if you just make the most of what you can, do your work and go home the pro's should out weight the cons.
Pros
BIK health care package and stock options.
Cons
lack of accountability for well known management culture in some departments

Disgraceful Culture - Horrendous People
Technician (Current Employee) –  Leixlip, County Kildare26 June 2019
The working culture at Leixlip is a disgrace and truly disgusting. A non exhaustive list:
- People, including those pregnant or with young children just live in work. They stay there all hours and expect you to, too. So very sad for their families
- Death by email, trying to stitch eachother up until you are completely thrown under the bus
- Vast incompetence across the patch. 'Management' and system owners are completely out of their depth and have absolutely no idea what they are doing
- Again I cannot reiterate the blame culture enough, trying to throw anyone under the bus to better themselves
- Absolutely no team ethic at all, will steal ideas and present as their own.

It is hard not to feel sorry for these people's families. They live in work, emailing all day long tap tap tap and trying to sound clever and act smart (even though they sound completely stupid) whilst actually achieving absolutely nothing. Horrendous people, horrendous culture. They cannot accept blame even when data clearly points toward them, there will always be some twist that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever that they will use to knife you. Worst place ever witnessed, never again.
Pros
Cut the grass often, smells quite nice.
Cons
The people

Dont waste your time
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) –  Leixlip, County Kildare14 June 2019
DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME WORKING FOR INTEL,

They don't care at all about you. the company has a great image outside. looks can be deceiving! the company is rotten to its core on the inside.

I don't think the engineers and managers or any of the higher ups of this place understand how hard the manufacturing techs work.
we are over worked and underpaid, Dont get long enough breaks, the company doesn't look at all the good work you do, the company crucifies you if you make a slight small mistake.

Promotions are basically non existent, my manager at the place took him 21 years to become a manager...a shift manager at that, and he looked so chuffed and happy. 21 years...to become a shift manager...that's not a win that's a sad loss at life

Typical day as a manufacturing tech starts of with getting a passdown...which is supposed to be the managers and engineers job. the company structure is so poor it makes me sad for leaving my previous job prier to working at intel. after passdown you check everything you'll be working on for the day, the engineers and managers think you have unlimited energy and just make decisions to add more work and change the game plans all the time. and if you miss it because THEY NEVER give you heads up, if you miss it then you are going to be in the firing line.

the engineers and managers are so rude and expect the impossible, so bad that I one time soiled my self because I couldn't leave the fab for a short toilet break, its a disrespectful and apolloing place to work.

I left because it wasnt worth my time, effort, and the humiliation
  more... to be working for such a horrible, god forsaken, rotten to its core, untrustworthy company. they pride themselves in putting customers first, that's a lie! they don't care about the customers, as long as they can line up there pockets with big profits and getting the little guy (manufacturing techs) to do all the hard work.  less
Pros
None, I worked with people who have been there for 25 years in the same position
Cons
everything bad you can imagine, where does the chemical waste go? how they treat employes, promotions are non existent, you can get a better paying job where they care about you with a different company.

Intel on paper was the ideal position
Manufacturing Technician (Current Employee) –  Leixlip30 May 2019
Intel on paper was the ideal position. However, in practice you are pushed to meet commitments but everyone is very quick to push you under a bus to make themselves look good... Especially management
Pros
Time Off
Cons
Long hours

amazing place to work but shift hours are impossible to sustain

amazing place to work, amazing opportunities to learn and grow fast. Company culture is very positive. Process engineers work on shift hours which are impossible to sustain.

Toxic environment
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) –  Leixlip, County Kildare13 December 2018
Awful place to work. Culture is absolutely awful. People take credit for others ideas an a blame culture is extremely obvious. Technicians are looked down upon by engineers and very little credit is given for their expertise. The amount of arrogant and incompetent people in this company is staggering even though I got to work in a decent group. Management is awful, no thinking goes into their decisions due to shocking arrogance. No training plan you own your own training. Career progression for a technician is non existent. You can move sideways. If you move into an engineering position which usually takes about 12 years you take a big pay cut due to loss of shift. Toxic company full of awful people. Can't leave anything on your desk as it will be stolen. To make it anywhere in this place you have to "play the game" which is awful.
Pros
Decent pay due to shift allowance
Cons
Management, culture, canteen is expensive and poor quality, shift pattern takes over your life, no progression

Anonymous worker (Current Employee) –  Dublin22 November 2018
Great place to get experience.
Job security doesn't exist. From my experience I can tell people join Intel to get experience and are looking for a better paid job after 3-4 years.
Pros
Healthcare

An experience to work there.
Remote Operations Centre Technician (Former Employee) –  Intel Corporation, Leixlip24 October 2018
fast environment with a blame culture.
Quite dated control systems meaning all breaks are taken at your desk or you get in trouble for leaving your station un-monitored and a cover your own back atmosphere as opposed to a teamwork orientated mindset.
Pros
good pay
Cons
no subsidized lunches, schedule removes social life outside of work, managers mainly do busy work while pushing all blame to their employees despite their own failures.

Yield Data Analyst (Current Employee) –  Leixlip, County Kildare22 August 2018
Very good company for anyone at any stage in their career. One of the biggest companies in the world means there's roles for people of all backgrounds, qualifications, and skill levels.

Culture in the company is good - in my experience everyone is very friendly and there are good relationships across different departments.

Relaxed, fun place to work.
Manufacturing Technician (Current Employee) –  Leixlip, County Kildare31 July 2018
Every day at work is different, you never completely know what you're coming into. The work force is incredibly diverse, this forces you to talk to/learn from people that are from many different countries.

We manage to provide high output without compromising quality and safety, but certain areas could definitely be done with better management. In a company as large as Intel, you need someone in your corner.
Pros
Paid vacation, healthcare, bonuses and free gym on site
Cons
Poor management
