I have an M.Tech in computer Science.I was selected in campus interview to work in Intel..During the interview I was drilled for more than 1.5 hours on various concepts.The interviewer asked me all sorts of fundu questions in networks,java,data structures etc....I performed my interview to the satisfaction and I was selected by Intel..
Now I work in Intel as a hardware tester..Though the pay is good I dont find the work interesting..I have been offered 5.1 lakhs as the pay package+ 2 lakh stock option..Any donkey can do the job that I am doing there in Intel..Even an ordinary diploma holder can do the same job..It also looks like the possibility of myself moving to a different department(i mean Programming) is also not possible at present..
At the first place I wonder what is the necessity of having such a strict selection process when the job that I am doing is in no way connected to your intelligence or knowledge..
please suggest whether i should stay in Intel just for the pay package r move to other companies which offer a better work in the range of 3-3.5 lakhs..
Intel India? well even the work sucks or its boring and not interesting you should still at least gain over 1 year of experience there b4 leaving. At least the pay is good. You can improve yourself privately by otaining some high level rare certifications during this period of time
BEA 8.1 Certified Administrator, IBM Certified Solution Developer For XML 1.1 and Related Technologies, SCJP, SCWCD, SCBCD, SCDJWS, SCJD, SCEA,
Oracle Certified Master Java EE 5 Enterprise Architect
I agree with Billy. Intel is a big name in the market and having worked there for more than a year will boost your resume very well. Do try to give other certifications exams and get have more skills by the time your actually ready for another job.

It's called "putting in your time". Not all of we get paid to do is a daily adventure, but unless you feel severely misfiled AND you don't expect Intel to have the flexibility to allow you to move into a more interesting position down the road, I'd recommend just plugging away until you've proven you're worth cultivating.
Of course, a good offer from somewhere else is always worth considering!
Being persecuted doesn't in any way prove your righteousness or your beliefs. Many people get persecuted because they are repugnant or annoying. Or just because they can be.

Intel is a household name, everyone knows who they are. My advice is to work there until you score a really good job at a small company, the kind that could be and Intel or Microsoft in 10 years. Forget about companies like TCS, forget about the opportunities of "onsite". The real opportunities are right where you are, onsite is a mirage.
