Intel Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Intel Corporation is an American multinational corporation and technology company headquartered in Santa Clara, California, in Silicon Valley. It is the world's largest and highest valued semiconductor chip manufacturer based on revenue, and is the inventor of the x86 series of microprocessors, the processors found in most personal computers (PCs). Intel ranked No. 46 in the 2018 Fortune 500 list of the largest United States corporations by total revenue. Intel is incorporated in Delaware. Intel supplies microprocessors for computer system manufacturers such as Apple, Lenovo, HP, and Dell. Intel also manufactures motherboard chipsets, network interface controllers and integrated circuits, flash memory, graphics chips, embedded processors and other devices related to communications and computing.

One senior technical marketing engineer shared this in a reciew, "While a seemingly good company to work for, this company looks after itself first, shareholders second, and management third. Employees take a distant fourth. The work hours are long and there is a lot of people who hold high positions that do nothing and have high compensation, leading to demoralizing environment. Your job may not make a bit of difference to anything important, which is not fulfilling. A couple of great things: you have access to many VERY smart people, and the company name gets your foot into many doors that would normally be closed on you."


Tell the world why Intel sucks!

I certify that this review is based on my own experiece and is my opinion of this person or business. I have not been offered any incentive or payment to write this review.

SAP Business Objects Developer/ Admin (Former Employee) says

"Really good environment to works, nice place and pay rate are fine, be aware of blue badges politics and I will highly recommend this place to work ThanksGood environmentHappy hour"

Tech (Former Employee) says

"I worked for them for 17 years and went thru 7 layoffs and finally got laid off. I had a supervisor who humiliated me in front of all of my co-workers and I turned them in to HR who did absolutely nothing to them and another supervisor when my brother passed away I was told to leave my problems at home and not to bring them at work. Then they falsified documentation against me in order to lay me off as they do with all their employees. They talk a good game about caring about their employees but treat them terrible. They work you to death and pile on as much stuff as they can than so you do the job of three people and you don't get decent raises for killing yourself and all the time the ones who kiss their supervisors butt are the ones who make it there until they get tired of you. Raises have nothing to do with how good your work is but how good you kiss butt. I guess the good thing is that both these supervisors were laid off too.Can't think of anySee my comments"

Engineer I (Former Employee) says

"Extremely stressful. Management's evaluation and performance review process is the worst I've experienced. Career advancement opportunities are limited. Difficult to get promoted."

Industrial Journeyman Electrician (Former Employee) says

"They will use you like toilet paper, then flush you when done. Absolutely NO JOB SECURITY. There is no logic to decisions, and you don’t know from day to day... literally you get to work and wonder if you will be walked out because ZERO stability. Stay away."

Fabrication Technician (Former Employee) says

"12.5 hour days, 9 in the bunny suit in the f ab were brutal. Even the veteran employees were dragging by the fourth day in a row doing that. The culture is one of extreme paranoia and control. Everyone informs on everyone else. The rules they have in place are guaranteed to make every worker feel diminished and worthless. You are a cog in a machine. Almost every day I was threatened with the loss of my job if I didn’t do this or that. No sleeping during your break time. Not even in your car. If you nod off, you’re considered sick and must report to the nurse. No using the stairs without holding on to the railing. Anyone you sees you not holding on will berate you and report you. All in all a horrible place to work."

Equipment Technician Engineer (Former Employee) says

"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"

Warehouse & Inventory Clerk (Former Employee) says

"all they care about is numbers, don't work there. It's a very stressful job especially if you aren't a regular employee. They do not treat temps the same."

Intern (Former Employee) says

"People talked bad about each other. Management was always on vacation and if it wasn’t about their life then they really didn’t care to help you advance and better yourself. They didn’t follow the missions and values that the co pant wants everyone to follow."

Former contractor (Former Employee) says

"Only the paranoia will keep you awake in this morass of boredom and political landmines. The only processes are in place to protect certain entrenched power clingers. Hostility to learning, curiosity, and progress are palpable. Contempt for contractors evident on every floor."

Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) says

"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 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 humiliationNone, I worked with people who have been there for 25 years in the same positioneverything 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."

Graduate Technical Intern - Software Development (Current Employee) says

"Very good learning experience. Teammates are very helpful. Need to improve the tech stack and management of work. Interns are made to work a lot. Managers should be a little friendly to the interns"

Sr. Software Engineer / Project Lead (Former Employee) says

"Great company that treats its people with respect. Great product. Great people. Willing to let people take initiative and otherwise grow in their fields. Willing to allow people to explore other roles in the company."

"Lying and arrogance Zum Beispiel auf die andere Zeigen aber selber hat man die meisten Schwachstelle im i7 Prozessor..."

"They are scaming people. They promise Marvel Avengers with a campaign but then withhold the game by causing tecnical difficulties on their site. Support is no help and will not release the game to me."

Alec Heesacker says

"I Am Unhappy That The Boss Had Fired A Job Coach Of Mine Who Was Named Kory Who Was Working Alongside Me. She Did Nothing Wrong As To Legally Fired. So, I’m Not Signing Up With This Intel Business For A Four Hour Shift Within The Dishwashing Room. Bye-Bye! Going To Look For Jobs Elsewhere."

Antonio Zammuto says

"Intel is a mobbing company. They don't have any idea of what respect for people and employees means."

Timothy Shabbott says

"In 15 days I've received 3 e-mails, and my problem still isn't solved. An average of 5 entire days between each response. My response to their e-mails were within a day, if not 30 minutes later after they messaged me. This is absurd and the worst customer service I've EVER had."

Michael says

"In chronological order: 1. The Intel Puma 6 chipset in my cable modem has severe performance problems; 2. The endless list of CPU vulnerabilities has reduced the performance of all of the computers/servers I own and all of the computers/servers I manage at work; 3. The Intel modem in my iPhone 11 Pro struggles with weak signals whereas the Qualcomm modem in my iPhone 6 performs perfectly fine; 4. The C2750 CPU in my home server has died because of the AVR54 clock problem."

Christian M. says

"As there were many safety issues related to their processors (like sceptre), I decided to download security updates to fix these issues. Outcome is simple - my i7 4790 performance dropped by ca. 10%"

David says

"they don't honor their warranty I have a I7 7 gen and it does not work anymore I contacted intel support and they are emailing me for almost a month and asking the most dumb questions anyway I just wanted to let you know that they are not going to their product or exchange it for a working one."

Asbjørn Olsen says

"Extreme branding... The intel sticker that was placed on my new laptop was attached with an extreme epoxy solution that not only wouldn't come off but actually damaged my laptop, leaving scars on the surface and removed some of the surface layer. Then I contacted them, showing them the damage their extreme branding methods had done to my PC. After a day, they replied with a "Hi Asbjørn! We will take this as a feedback and will forward it to the concerned team." - no apologies, no attempts to do anything about the damage. I wrote them back with my dissatisfaction and got no reply."

Arthur Harding says

"Very nice,friendly & helpful staff, good offer for affordable money"

Virginia Greene says

"I'm not going to lie, they make great chipsets, no doubt. However, does it cost them how much they charge for them? Definitely not! I've been buying their cpus for a decade now, but I've finally caved amd's way and to tell the truth, I don't miss them. Reduce your prices."

former fan says

"in a world of push and pull Intel, has become the force pushing us backwards when it used to be the force pulling technology towards innovations. there is no room for “i’s” in this world, only “us’s and all’s”. goodbye Intel, you will not be missed or remembered."
