Intel CEO to retire

Paul Otellini, "a generally well-liked San Francisco native with an M.B.A. from Berkeley", is to retire after 40 years at chipmaker Intel. [NYT]


  1. My favorite part of Otellini’s time at Intel was when he didn’t notice the rise of mobile and basically conceded the market to ARM-architecture chips.

  2. A new CEO is unlikely to change the culture inside their production facilities. Intel gives new meaning to micro management. Any attempts at independent thought are severely punished.

    1. I was going to jokingly respond that this matches with Intel’s core values of Copy Exactly, Constructive Confrontation, and Great Place to Work, but it looks like they’ve updated their core values in the last few years.  Not that doing so will in any way make Intel a less hostile work environment.
