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.

lack of accountability for well known management culture in some departments
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
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.
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...
None, I worked with people who have been there for 25 years in the same position
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.
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.
Decent pay due to shift allowance
Management, culture, canteen is expensive and poor quality, shift pattern takes over your life, no progression
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.
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.
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.

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.
It's a employee friendly company. They really care with their employees if you're a blue badge. But unluckily I'm working for westerwood global don't have those benefits. Hopefully I will be given a chance to work direct to them and become a blue badge.
Nice to work with Company, learned a lot while working. Management is good. Workplace is huge and you got a target which is easy to achievable so no work pressure. Long shift but constant break is good. Definitely join back if i got a opportunity to work with INTEL.
Meeting people, monitoring access badges and traffic. Alarm response General administration duties . It is very important to be able to multitask and be nice and friendly to everyone. The management were always very approachable and helpful. I get on very well with people, and adhere to all company policies. Cant say I found any part of the job hard. I enjoy being around people and learning things all the time. Meeting people.
Very high tech equipment, which is a good challenge, But always have to watch your back, with the cut throat work culture.
Management foster an apartheid culture between contractors and direct employees, which is disappointing.
Business where product is the priority with a culture that is supposed to be employee biased.
Burnout rate is high for graduate employees
Skills are not utilised enough
Advancement is difficult and workload increases
Complex shift working but plannable offtime can be done
Start work at 7.30, job differs everyday regarding meeting deadlines, the work was good everyone was a team player, management was very good, the work had to be completed on time and done the right way or else it would fall back on the company. The work was double checked and sometimes triple checked to make sure it was up to standards.
