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 don’t want to let good bosses down. Quality saves time by taking extra time to make sure that stuff is done well.

Intel is going to go the way of Motorola. Overpaid entrenched management, poor leadership, lack of accountability, and flatlined employee recognition k–led off execution. Hate these layoffs? Move or go down with the ship. Handwriting has been on the wall for years. The strong talent deserves a better company. Go out and find a better place .
@2ihq+17T9PD4W Intel has spent how any billions on silicon process RD? See all the cranes in Hillsboro with all that building what did Intel get? The spent tens of billion upgrading in Arizona and Israel and what did they get ?
If you are a BS bean counter what would you do, look for ever way to find some to replace the failed leaders in Hillsboro, but little has materially happened that can turn the Titanic.
The ship has hit the iceberg and it is going down, FUBAR
@2ihq BS's Jan announcement may only affect TMG and fans, other orgs should be ok
But what about all the other chipmaking companies on foundry process that aren't run by t4rd5
It is way to late for mid-level management changes to save Intel. Intel is a lost cause and if you have not reached this conclusion on your own, please read independent news and speak to people that know what's coming. Intel cannot compete any longer. Intel is being replaced by the massive R&D funds of the entire industry poured into TSMC. BS indicated that he was making a big announcement in January – has anything inside Intel improved for the better in the past 4 weeks? Answer is NO. Get ready for a massive change at Intel. Good luck to all.
If RA has a big layoff, it will impact local housing prices, but not jobs. There isn't much manufacturing, especially fab work in Oregon, so most of those people will leave the state.
OP sorry not talking about internal transfer. Why take a chance with that?
Hey Friend, OP here; unfortunately there were a swarm of people who applied for most of the jobs from this org (can’t vouch for other groups). I’d keep checking internal postings and ask around. This org previously had culture problems a few years ago, but they’ve really been working to make things better. This is not a wafer or a software org but is a necessity when it comes to getting useable chips.
Many did leave recently. Many more are mad bc they tried but didn't get it.
Why so much hate on the forum, if it’s that bad why not just leave. Plenty of other opportunities in tech despite what’s going on. Try making a positive change or just leave, but just complaining is a b–ch move!
Our Values - Who We Are
Customer obsessed (we just paid Bain millions to copy Jeff Bezos's LP)
One Intel (don't question the MCM's stupid decisions because we are "family")
Fearless (don't be afraid to get laid off)
Truth (it's true that Inhell is in death spiral of mediocrity and clueless managers)
Transparency (trust us, 10nm is still on schedule to be in MVP ... in 2016)
Inclusion (this is why we have a Anthropology PhD as a Senior Fellow at Intel, and give out larger bonuses to URMs hires, and discriminate against Korean American engineers)
Quality (Meltdown, Spectre? And BK traded on that info when it wasn't public ... hey look at those cool flying light drones. They were in the Olympics. Lady Gaga sang with them in the Super Bowl.)
Intel doesn't even know what its values are anymore.
Most intel leaders and manager couldn’t recognize quality or smarts as they spent their whole career BSing
The biggest risk is a mass layoff in RA, it will flood the PDX market for many, many months. So if you can leave early - leave early, or you'll be left looking for a job 1000 miles away. Just sayin'
@xkj+17T9PD4W one senior customer-facing leader's advice when trying an idea is to evaluate if it first of all hits your credibility, the irony of it all
@mwc+17T9PD4W Don’t forget AMD got a MIT PhD running the show and Intel got a bean counter from some 2nd rate MBA school.
Also Intel got TMG’s LTD/FSM excursion and defect machine dragging them down.
AMD employs 10K employees vs 111K at Intel and Intel is getting their behind whipped with 1/10 of employees. Let that sink in for a min. Their stock is twice as much as Intel. Intel needs to start the layoffs ASAP if they are going to close TMG. Jump ship before its too late. If you wait you will regret it. January announcement will determine the faith of all lazy bums at Intel. I
Despite coming from a group that is supposedly good, I find that risk-avoidance is so endemic that anything that doesn’t have a line of sight to success gets instantly ZBB-ed. Given this, I’m not too hopeful at least on the innovation front even if you promote these leaders up.
Are these good groups hiring, asking for a friend ;)
