Intel to slash 1,000 management jobs

Intel logoIntel executives told employees on Thursday they would cut 1,000 management jobs in an effort to rebound from poor profits in recent quarters reports InfoWord.

The layoffs will be complete by the end of July, and will be spread across Intel divisions worldwide, spokesman Bill Calder said.

The move fits in with a pledge in April by Chief Executive Officer Paul Otellini to restructure the company within 90 days after he scaled back earnings forecasts to $9.3 billion in 2006, compared to $12.1 billion in 2005.

Intel, the world's largest chip maker, has watched the global PC market slow its growth at the same time its rival Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) began to win significant market share.

Some analysts expect the company to announce even harsher cuts during its quarterly earnings report July 19. Calder called the rumors "speculation," but added, "the efficiency analysis continues."

Intel decided to begin its cuts with managers because the company is top-heavy.

Thursday's move helps correct that problem, but Calder declined to share details on how much money the company would save, or how many managers would still be employed after the cuts. Intel has about 100,000 employees total.

Since Otellini's promise, he has made a series of moves. In June, he sold Intel's Xscale processor line to Marvell Technology Group Ltd. for $600 million. Those chips handle voice data in electronics such as BlackBerry devices, and general processing in smartphones like the Motorola Q and Palm Treo.

Intel also combined its NAND and NOR flash memory groups into a single division, combining fabrication plants and technology development with marketing and product development.

Intel also notified 17 Ethernet component developers at a Glasgow, Scotland, site that it would eliminate their jobs by September. And the company outsourced the jobs at its optical transponder division in Newark, California.

I have a history of heart<a href="http://diyemjb.com"> dassiee</a> in my family. My father had stroke after stroke until he was no longer able to take care of himself or even knew who we were. In order to avoid this for my children, I have been trying to live a healthy lifestyle. This chapter reminds me of the multiple ways our cardiovascular system can cause illness or death. I have high blood pressure, which would probably go away if I lost about 50 lbs., and I recently lowered my cholesterol to acceptable levels (without medication). I still imagine my blood vessels clogged though. The one thing I was looking for in the book and on the internet was how a polyp on a heart valve (don't know which valve) caused my twin sister to die from a stroke. It was her second stroke that caused brain death, ten days after the first stoke. Her speech was slightly effected by the first stroke. She had healthy blood cholesterol and normal blood pressure. But this anomaly caused her death before doctors could do anything to fix the problem. Just goes to show, you never know what will get you in the end. The information on shock, though sparse, was new to me. I know about anaphylactic shock, but I was unaware there were that many causes of shock. Septic shock concerns me, so does hypovelemic shock from surgery. I have to get my knee replaced soon, and infection in there from my blood would be bad. I have a chronic infection in my hip that has been in remission. I expect to have to have another picc line for constant antibiotics going into my system to keep the infection from reaching my knee after surgery. This will be my fourth picc line. I take blood tests periodically to determine whether the infection is flaring up or not. The last test was good. Every surgery scares me, I have had way too many, and worry that I might have just one too many.
