Intel CEO points out the worst part of leading a company

It's not easy to be at the helm of a huge company. But what's the worst part? Intel CEO Brian Krzanich has the answer, according to Business Insider.

When, during an interview at Fortune's Brainstorm conference, Mr. Krzanich was asked what the worst part of being a CEO is, he said it has to do with the wardrobe.

"When I ran all of Intel's manufacturing, I lived in Arizona. I came to work every day in shorts and a T-shirt," he said. "Being a CEO is different. I have to dress nicer. I don't get to come to work in shorts. I have to go to board meetings."

His favorite parts of the job? Solving engineering problems, manufacturing products and going to customer meetings, according to the report.

In addition, Mr. Krzanich discussed why Intel proposed — and then promptly cancelled — a Trump fundraiser in June. When asked about it, he said the event was supposed to be "a conversation about issues" such as manufacturing and diversity. But then "[i]t turned into a fundraiser, and we backed out. It is not our business to support a person," he said, according to Fortune.
