AMD Begins Cutting Costs, Stock Perks First to Go

As we all know, AMD has had a hard year thusfar. And so, AMD's move to cut costs is just short of expected. AMD employees, as of November 1st, 2007, will no longer be able to spend 20% of their salary on AMD stock at a 15% discount. Stock perks are not the only things we'll see leaving. There are noticeably fewer bonuses and charity-matchings this year, and there are a couple rumors of lay-offs.Source: The Inquirer

AAH The Inquirer lol
Yea, gotta love it. So... we still post news from them.. why? There should be a super tiny link to theinquirer instead of having to read past all this rumor-mill bloat. Engadget has a filter where you can take out all the pesky news about Apple. That's just me, but I have a definite bias towards both Apple and the Inquirer :laugh:

If that was actually true that would be bad news. What company tells their employees not to invest with them that stayed in business?

Well, with their problems in cash flow, its not unthinkable. But its not a killer either. So what if they lose stock options, more money for them in their pocket.
