Has Intel ever considered not spending money on perks (e.g. water bottles, t-shirts, keychains, etc.). I don’t know how much these things help with advertising/morale and only get them because they’re there. I personally only care about free lunch... — read more
Not an expert but it seems that bad decisions in cutting people and capital spending caused Intel to miss 10nm promises. So instead of making sure the same doesn't happen to 7nm Intel doubles down and cuts even more. Now 7nm missed commitments. And... — read more
I read somebody mention that Intel will no longer be giving out packages to those laid off and I'm not sure if that's even legal? I thought they were obligated by law to provide severance, am I wrong? I mean, if the company is not obligated to it why... — read more
A company makes 10~20B in net income in each of the past 4 years and yet manufactures the same 14nm technology with no advancement. A CEO should answer where those money goes before asking for more money from the government (US people). Such a... — read more
OK, managerial skills are different than technical skills but I wonder what kind of contribution managers make here who have little or no technical skills. Someone has already mentioned that he gets frustrated when he has to spend half of his time... — read more
Well f* them I'll talk all the s* I want
Manager just informed me no raise this year.
When you stumble you need resources, scale, and resolve to recover. In Intels hey day they made a lot of mistakes but because of huge scale in market with little alternatives they used their near monopoly and predatory behavior and huge money and... — read more

I had my insight conversation and high impact but was told by my manger that I had no scope here and look for other opportunities. No moving up for me as there are no opportunities. Why would an organization not want to retain good talent and leave... — read more
Years ago we saw the trend of mismanagement cutting IC roles when the problem really lies with management. If anyone couldn’t read the tea leaves that Intel was in trouble when we missed 10nm, then people can continue to put their heads in the sand... — read more
In past also AMD (Athelon & 1 GHz race) , IBM (PowerPC) and DEC (Alpha processors) threatened Intel and it appeared that Intel wont recover. But we did recover and went on to newer heights with revenues and profitability. Will we be able to repeat... — read more
At intel the actual work is not hard. dealing with dumb-a– managers is the hard part. It is exhausting to educate them, create slides for them, write speaker notes / email summaries so that they can take your work and communicate to their superiors... — read more
Why did they create an intel optane group and make Alper The general manager of the group? Strange. The success of optane is questionable but mostly the opportunity is in the data center. Alper has already been running that, with no or little success... — read more
It’s devastating to realize Intel can no longer be considered a business to retire with. This company doesn’t value its employees and hasn't in many years. We are no longer seen as vital assets that can contribute to the success of the company - and... — read more
How long before Intel ends up being a washed up has been like VIA? Look at what VIA does now. The possible future of Intel right there.
Cuts in response to hard times Hard times result from cuts Go to step one
LOL beyond sad and beyond behind, so behind that a new derogative word should be invented
Laid off in IT today. Really s—s as I was working on really relevant projects on a busy and productive team. There is no safe group in IT.
Intel is now the General Motors of the chip making world. Logic isn't growing much anymore and they can't seem to get any traction with any other product. It only goes downhill from here. 20 years from now Hillsboro will be the next Flint, Michigan... — read more
Despite what people say in this site, there are groups at Intel that are strong technically and culturally. A large factor is having leadership all the way up the chain support (not just get metrics for) quality and employee wellbeing. Employees... — read more

I've heard a couple of their local "consultants" (er..definition used loosely) have left for better opportunities since they were given the 6 month Intel contract.
