I heard that some groups have already had cuts. What is the severance? Is it what they did to the maker groups last year? You have 2 months to find another internal job and then get 1 month severance plus cobra insurance etc? Can anyone confirm?
Johny - BEST Pat - GREAT Bob - MEH, but OK Murthy - WORST
Upvote if you will consider leaving
Mix it up. Rename and acronym everything. Here they come. They will surely be followed by shadow layoffs and cuts of groups as well.
Read this article and to tell you the truth I don’t see this that is realistic. Curious about getting some thoughts on this. Is this even a realistic option at this time? If it is, what could be the consequences of such a purchase?... read more

10nm is at least 3 or 4 years late and 7nm is nowhere on the horizon. Poor yields are to blame. Why have yield AM PJ and 10nm yield GL SowmiR not been held accountable for this disaster?
Kirk Skaugen was mentioned on TV today
It is hilarious to read press talk about AE as a “seasoned executive”. She is a flaming train wreck that destroyed intel’s chances in modem business. MCM is probably delighted that she left on her own. This way they don't have to deal with having to... read more
Last Friday Apple Executives gave sworn testimony in court today are looking for a Second source supplier. They even approached Samsung and mediatek to supply that 5G solution in 2019. If I worked in ic DG I'd have my resume ready soon
If you remove all the Acquisitions on b* by the recent management then also at in discrete gpus and take out all the b* initiatives such as wearables and the TV show you then have AMD

Zero value add teams : Drones Intel Sports Camera New Technology Group Complete waste of money. Seriously, how many VPs and Directors are in the Sports/Drone teams? What an utter waste of money.
This was an interesting article that sums up what the leading companies in the business have in stall for 2019, an compares their efforts in an attempt to figure out who will prove to most successful. How do you think Intel will do in 2019? Strengths... read more

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think that the presentation of Huawei’s new data center server chip is a direct threat to Intel; at this point, but it might be soon. The very fact that competitors are attacking the market in which Intel holds the96% os... read more
Will the CEO announcement happen before the Q1 earnings call?

+1 this post (using the voting arrows below) if you think TMG will eventually be spun-off. -1 if you think TMG will remain inside.
Does anyone know why a disproportionate fraction of positions of power within TD (all the way upto PB) are with Rensselaer alumni. One can argue hiring/networking/semiconductor research program is strong for that university but really is that all... read more
Reading on everything that Intel faced and still managed to produce solid numbers made me conclude that all and all this wasn't such a bad year, as many claim it was. On the other hand I generally think that a big diversification in products is not a... read more

What did he do at QCOM? He was virtually unknown before he joined. He was hired with such fanfare. But he is neither a circuit designer, nor a computer architect, nor a process technologist.
The article in the link sums up the products that made the most contribution to Intel’s good results in the year that will soon be behind us. Not surprising that the boost in modem sales was something that contributed the most to the revenue. The... read more
How long are we going to have to function without an official CEO? If Intel is not capable of finding (or lets be honest - enticing) the right person for the position, then why not simply make it official and remove the interim from Swan's title?... read more
Intel is raising in Value Engineering especially smaller Groups mostly due to V Engineering core process.
Well, it looks like we have one less Christmas present this year! No Intel Keynote. Looked at the headliner keynotes list for CES 2019 and Intel is not on it at all! Last year, we were the headliner. Now we have nothing! Sad!
For me, this is certainly much better than keeping this issue under the rug. God knows Intel made a lot of customers nervous and caused a lot of them to miss out on some serious revenue... read more
