    • Qualcomm what the‽
      Confession time: I've never heard of Albertson's but I suspect they're more of a grocery store than a tech company. So someone clue me in on this meme?

      @Qualcomm, a few months ago a dude working at Albertsons was shitting on FAANG jobs saying they suck and are beneath him.

      Shit I know Albertsons is a great software company but didn't know they are tier 0 in hardware too!

  • Google, Amazon and Apple have bunch of hardware engineering teams. Microsoft does too for that matter. I would suggest that more than FAANG hype, consider the product of the team, work culture and over all benefits (monetary and others) the company offers while selecting your next destination. Good luck 👍

      Samsung emulates it’s Korean, hierarchical culture. Anything that’s not HQ for this global conglomerate- is bad news for employees.

      I meant yes in a good way. I am 7 months old and this is the best culture and WLB, not to mention pay that I am receiving here. I have worked at both AA out of FAANG and for them we were just a number. Here at Intel, we are not just numbers but people. 😊

      @PoWoW, you’re a rare exception. During my tenure at Intel I never met one moving from FAANG; all moves I knew are on the opposite direction.

      In general Intel’s pay sucks, and the culture is toxic in most teams. Maybe you happen to work at one of the few great teams, but they are exception instead of norm at Intel; or maybe 7 months is too short for you to really know Intel.

      Coming with AA experience took care of the pay part. Hope my next few years will be as good as the last few months. Worst case I know what to do GTFO. 😉

      I am 7 months old here and pretty impressed. Worked at 2 FAANG companies in the past. Intel outperforms WLB, Respect. Not to mention TC is in par.

      I think Intel is a huge brand and therefore general public would give certain level of respect to you. But in terms of pay....it's not on par to the likes of Apple, Broadcom, or Samsung....not even close

    • Cisco frans.ba
      Haha I was being generous with amazon since they do sell a shit ton of smart home products.. but yeah Apple is more about status as their shit is years behind Samsung but they do play together nicely with its software and other products
