Advanced Micro Devices reportedly preparing massive layoff

Anonymous Coward writes | about 2 years ago

AMD 0

An anonymous reader writes "AMD is preparing to lay off 20 to 30 percent of its workforce after warning of a 10 percent decline in Q3 revenues driven by the weak global economy and PC sales, according to AllThingsD's Arik Hesseldehl. The layoffs will reportedly focus on engineering and sales, and are in addition to a 10 percent headcount reduction 11 months ago. Teams of consultants from McKinsey and Boston Consulting Group are reportedly swarming headquarters to advise the
CEO Rory Read, who took over from Dirk Meyer a little over a year ago; several
senior executives including the CFO, have recently departed."
