Owning penny stock amd is like playing Russian roulette
Multiple sources confirm to AllThingsD that senior managers are girding their teams for yet another shakeup, though they are saying that the number of jobs that will be eliminated this time around will be much smaller. Some employees are being quietly told by managers that they will lose their jobs in January, but are being kept around for the moment as insurance against the possibility of other key people quitting before then, one source told me.
Another source told me that it’s an open secret around the corridors of AMD’s offices in Sunnyvale, Calif., and Austin, Texas, that another round of job cuts are coming. “The thinking is that management needs to get a few things right that they didn’t in the last round of layoffs,” one source told me.
It’s unclear exactly how many jobs will be eliminated in the pending reorganization. One source described the target number as “in motion,” in part because AMD managers are waiting to see how many more people quit on their own accord between now and January — and thus don’t require expensive severance packages. “Once the rate of attrition is known, they’ll know how many more they need to fire to get to the final target,” one source told me.
