Thread regarding Intel Corp. layoffs

Why did you lose trust in your direct management?

I am quite surprised that there are those who still trust their management here. Still, I think there are more who don't than those who stayed at Intel because they trust their management. Purely out of curiosity, I wonder what were some of the reasons that people lost their trust in them.

I lost faith in management when they started looking, talking, acting the same.... and would only let others who looked the same into the club.

When I had to give remedial training on the basics of what the team was working on to my micromanaging manager. So he could present the spreadsheets I had to make for him to our 2nd level, who actually was somewhat technical. The whole team under this guy got screwed for years. Leaving Intel has been the best career move I’ve made in well over a decade, for sure.

My last manager was a$$ . He would talk for 15 minutes straight, non stop. I would just remove my headset and then check every 3-4 minutes. His longest speech was over 22 minutes. I never heard a word of it. He was an ex Fab jockey with no clue about anything else.

You guys don't know how to play the game is all. Hang out with your manager. Offer to buy him lunch. Find things interests you can do together outside of work. Give his kids presents at Christmas. Offer to stop by his house on a Saturday and rotate the tires on his car. It's the little things that make a big difference in the grand scheme of things. Next thing you know...Promotion time.

You can tell when someone is listening to the words you are saying, but they aren't really hearing them, they are busy plotting their own path. Our managers are as fake a group of people as I have ever met, the type you would never ever introduce to your family. I reckon many fall on the sociopath spectrum.
