How high will layoffs go?
LarryM99   1/17/2014 6:17:41 PM
I'd like to see the breakdown of those layoffs. Upper management obviously blew it in terms of reading and responding to the market, but my bet is that those below them will bear the bulk of the hit. This is the point where there should be announcements of senior managers retiring and opening up positions for younger people with better perspectives on the current market.

What really happened at 14 nm

It doesn't look like Intel is gunning all engines to try to beat ARM. Instead, it looks like a retreat. There have been 14 nm rumors for some time now. Or is the TriGate/FinFET a poison pill?

We do need to know how the Re-prioritized Intel will look like. Where the cuts will happen is our next story.

@Larry: To my guess, first 5%, will be bad apples, mainy from Intel as big corporate. If one has goofed up in corporate expectation and discipline, they may get hit.

How about some guesses as to the actual % that will be cut by year end? I take 7%.

I expect the year will continue to provide bad news for Intel and by mid-year another 2% or so layoff will be in the works. I think "Big silicon" is on the way out...

They would say that wouldn't they! In the past any redundancy numbers were shrouded in secrecy. That is, after the workers left the company, Intel did not state exactly how many redundancies there were. So, they could say 5% now but the actual number could be closer to 10%...

As a public company, not sharing stuff is possible sometimes, but lying is lillegal.

Big silicon is on its way out indeed. Great for consumers!

It sounds like they're expecting to hit their number by attrition -- "The company says it will use methods like voluntary programs, retirements and leaving jobs vacant when employees leave."
