Salary vs. Skill-level expectations at Intel - RF Cafe Forums
Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Has anyone had recent experience working at or negotiating salary with Intel? I get the impression that they want champagne on a beer budget. Just trying to rationalize if it's worth working there.

That's odd. They compensate very well but my experience (meaning I know people, not myself) is with Ph.D.'s. If you are BS I can definitely see them screwing you. Just think about it: if you are BS and Intel has some position it wants to fill with a BS guy and Intel knows it is "INTEL" then they believe there are dime a dozen good candidates at BS level that will fit the job criteria. Now for MS or Ph.D., it's a little different and I think they compensate well for people with advance degrees. If you are Ph.D. and you think they are shortchanging you then I don't know what to say.
