Employee Events- The Game Changer

Working for a Fortune 100 (#51) company has been amazing. The perks offered are off the charts. The amount of resources provided could make you spoiled. One thing I appreciate most about Intel is the number of Finance get-togethers. You can tell that they truly care about their employees.

As pictured above, I had the opportunity to sit down with fellow coworkers one night and enjoy a bbq. It is pleasant experience to let your mind relax from work for one night and talk about “normal” things with others. Plus, having blow-up slides and corn hole for the kiddos is also wonderful. It allows for people of all different walks of life to come together at a specific point in time and share something common: food and games.

I am excited for the future and cannot wait for what I will bring to Intel in the near future. Cheers!

Class-Bonding Hockey Game

It is nice to have an MBA program that cares about their students. This past weekend, we were given to the opportunity to attend a local hockey game at the Maverik Center in West Valley City, Utah. Most of the first and second year students were in attendance. To be casual for one night is a change. Getting the chance to see everyone in their “normal” clothes is a change. Hearing one of your classmates yell, “Yea, hit him in the face!”, is a change. But guess what, change is good. Without change, companies will not survive in this corporate nation. I have learned to accept and adopt change. This will help me excel rapidly in my career path.

Simple Things in Life

The simple things. Going to the zoo on one of your days off. It was even better because it was a rainy day and most people were indoors, scared to wander the cement. But not my friend and I. We brought an umbrella.

Learning something new every day is something I strive for. Simply reading the plaques that cover ever animal area, knowledge is gained. Even though work is not involved, learning never stops. Try and better yourself as a person. Oh, and do not let the rain hold you back!
