Top 10 Email Pet Peeves
The “oops” factor: Avoid forwarding the “sour grapes” email to your manager or the sender’s manager. Unless it’s a really out-of-line response, neither manager has time to deal with a writer’s occasional moodiness. It won’t improve your standing with the email writer, either.

Credentials: Pamela has a degree in Computer Science from Michigan State. Her prior employment was General Motors Corporation for 16 years in product design/development in Detroit and Pontiac, Michigan. Pamela has been at Intel since March, 2005. She was previously at Intel from 1995 through 2001. Pamela has been a Sr. Admin Assistant for Carlene Ellis, VP, Education, and is presently supporting Rosalind Hudnell in Corporate Diversity. Pamela would tell you her positions have been very exciting
What she loves about her work: I really enjoy seeing the new faces at Intel. It’s very important that people feel connected to Intel Corporation as well as the community they will reside in. The new employees all have such fresh outlooks and are so eager to be here. It should be a top priority to Intel to make them welcome and valued. We want the best from our new employees, and we should give them our best foot forward. I get a sense of Intel’s future as I listen to their ideas, feedback, and questions. It is a privilege to meet them first! I must also say that I have had excellent supportive managers who encourage me to instruct these classes. Both Carlene Ellis and Rosalind Hudnell can see the value added to Intel and my personal growth.
What she loves to do for fun: In my spare time, I take off to the Atlantic Ocean. I am a “cruise ship fanatic”. Ask me about any Caribbean island…I’ve been there.
Family: Four children! Owen, 39, Ebony, 37, Deborah 33, and Synnamon 20. Of course, I cannot leave out my dachshunds, Linus and Roxie.
