overall summary

Very much a brain washing company into intel culture. A lot of internal politcs and social climbing within the company. It can be both a good place to work but also very toxic, poeple are always knocking each other down to make themseleves look good. Worklife balance is not bad and the company is fairly felixable. I cant say i love the place nor can i say its really bad eithier. Its a job for a couple of years to get experience then move on not a place to establish a career. The canteen and toilets in the place are absolutely terrible.

Pros

Pays ok

Cons

Politics, negativeity, worst canteen in the world.

Good place to work with good support from team members. Benefits and conditions in work are of a very high standard. Work Life Balance is not enough of a priority here though.

Stressful if you can’t take pressure...

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 .

internship with no management

had a great time but was placed on team that was never in office leaving me by myself. typical day was me working on my own in the teams cubicle. Probably should have requested to move teams as that was an option

Excellent workplace

Brilliant workplace with very understanding down to earth staff and a caring environment ideal for new hires. I was a new hire and I absolutely loved my time there. I was forced to leave due to illness.

Interesting environmental and corporate culture

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

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

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

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

An experience to work there.

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.

Good company culture

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.

Productive and Fun Workplace

Started at 7am, meeting with team to plan day ahead and delegate tasks. Management of team were great, very supportive and approachable. Workplace culture great. Job very demanding at times but very challenging and rewarding. Hardest part of the job was probably the early morning start. the most enjoyable part was working with a great team of people and getting the job done.

Pros

Subsidised cafeteria

Cons

Long hours

Great place to work but really hard work expected.

The 11 years there where the education I needed to be the best at what I do. If not for the politics and management fight to the get too the top. I could not say a bad word about the place.
