I will say one thing. The holiday get togethers weren't so fun or jovial this year.

Miss lots of people that have been let go, and there's just a funk that tells me there's more layoffs to come.

Lots of unfortunate gossip about all these posts, too. I walked away from a lot of it. Not trying to be holier than thou, just didn't want to hear it.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Whatever happens, I wish all of my coworkers a great holiday season.

I agree. No trolls allowed.

We have enough dissension in Alameda to have more to worry about with trolls and lurkers.

Ok. You're actually a troll with no real info & nothing to contribute. Thanks.

I don't have a good feeling about this upcoming year. Getting a very bad feeling at HQ lately.

Heard something similar. They are letting people burn up time off before lowering the axe.

I've heard the executive team is finalizing lists over the next two weeks for a mid-January layoff

Thanks guys - Merry Christmas. Really appreciate it.

No idea. I don't think we've hit rock bottom, yet. Used to be a great place to work. Not anymore, though.

A strange funk and vibe permeates the whole campus.

I do think I'll be affected soon. I've been here quite awhile and am in my 40s. I know Intel won't come out and say it, but that's who they are going after.

Are the layoffs necessary or simply a "thank you sir, may i do another?" with Intel management?

Lost track of the number of layoffs this year.

I don't think it'll be anyone in what's left of engineering, but vibe been wrong before.

Heard marketing and sales are the focus. Keep thinking that anyone over the age of 45 is vulnerable, just a feeling.

Seeing too many long term employees being looked at by management. Higher salaries and lower productivity is what I've overheard more than one VP mention in passing.

Are there specific groups being targeted or just a morale booster?
