Intel is a company on the decline
Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – June 25, 2016
I work for Intel in Hillsboro, OR and I am not in the Fab.
Intel is a company on the decline. The executive and middle management are not effective, non-insightful, politically motivated and removed from the mass workforce. Mnagement is basically squeezing the American workforce and increasing the workforce in overseas "lower cost" areas (India, Costa Rico, Mexico, China, etc.). The management is flailing and are making stupid business decisions (like entry into cameras, wireless charging, Sofia 3G SOC's, dancing spiders, drones, TV reality shows) while blindly pushing URM's into the work force while the key businesses are under attack or failing. I don't trust the existing management to make the right decisions and Intel will be on a decline for many years and will see continued decline in the american worker and declining revenue/profits.
I would now recommend working at Intel. Nearly everyone I know who is good is trying to leave.

No promotion, low salaries, political/back stabbing environment, really poor management
