Isn't that like with almost every job? That's why they usually tell you when you are a kid in school to find something you like and do that because what is tedious for one person is interesting to another.

I mean, I know you say that you work in your profession, but maybe you chose a wrong profession or maybe you can look for another job or start a (small) company. There are many stories about those that started in their garages.

I my case it doesnt really bother me because I got a scholarship for Master and Doctor degree to Japan next year. So that I can become a researcher, which is what I like. But if I had to stay here, I would be very worried. There are more complex projects within the company, but then again its just verification. Verification is very common for engineers here in my country.

These big companies like Intel have a lot of workers from 3rd world countries like Costa Rica, India, Indonesia, etc. In fact, many engineers here work together with indians overseas, for example. 

We are treated and paid like 3rd worlders too. What Intel pays an engineer here, is like the minimum wage (or even less), in America.
