that makes me feel bad
Atleast they dont cut the jobs in dresden as AMD is and importent employer in that region. Still crap!
Talking of R600, are we going to see any news on it from Bit in the near future Tim?
Inevitable but sad all the same.
yes, I'm currently eating dry coffee granules so that I don't have to keep getting up to go to the toilet.
That's more info than I needed Tim
Nice to hear that you have some stuff coming, I cant wait.
I can see it now :
"Congratulations chaps you've been the backbone of this department for years, now in relation to the new 300mm wafers, your all fired, we dont need you anymore."
Seems a little harsh to me
Sadly redundancy is a reality in a big company that has taken a turn for the worse; it doesn't really surprise that it's happened, and I'm sure they recieved a nice severance package for their inconvenience.
its the quickest way to save money and big companies dont care about the small guys. The real big way of saving money is for the big cheeses to take a pay cut and only buy a new ferrari every 5 years and not every year
what he says.
To some extent I hate to see people be fired, especially like what Intel did to the people working on 200mm wafers - I mean they probbably did quality work but then suddenly a new project comes along and they are jobless? Thats kinda messed up. . .
On the other hand, if they are being cut loose, maybe they were not important to the company, maybe their performance wasn't good.
I just hope some big company will back AMD so we dont get a monopoly. Or even buy it.
Hi guys,do you work in AMD company?Could you tell me the average salary,I am radio technology engineer.
Whats going on with this thread ? some of the responses sound like they are indeed in response to this article, and some of them are definetely in response to one about intel cutting jobs last year .. almost all of them are dated 2007 too.
The post above yours was a threat revival. Noobs have a special skill for resurrecting dead threads.
Yea that's kind of a slap in the face.
A 2 year old topic? Really? Why?
Too bad Intel had decided to use such unfair practices in the first place. Who knows where AMD would have been on tech advancement. I doubt the money is going to help AMD catch up on tech, but it should help them advance some.
430 is a lot of people but it isn't nearly as bad as it could have been. besides, think of it in this way - the people in marketing, sales, and engineering that were fired probably were not doing their job that well. the original phenom and these new bulldozers have had engineering flaws, i'm sure the people who caused these flaws were fired. as for the people in marketing and sales, amd is not profiting much and i've RARELY ever seen any advertisements from them. they have youtube channels that doesn't tell us very much about their products.
i'm sure amd wouldn't mind taking some of these people back if they get the money to do it, but i can understand how they can't afford it.
