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 - HARD. Listening to them giving you lectures about how we all need to add value - VERY HARD. You go to the insights meeting to hear some input from dumb – ses. All you get is whether you can write all those feedback sections and send to them. What about your feedback. Oh, you get it when they will update your write up. The company is beyond repair.
This made me laugh a lot, maybe just because this is absolutely true. I’d rather do a lot more work every day than just listen to them for 5 minutes pretending to be smart.
