Resigning From AMD

Oct 8, 2021

Resigning From AMD Submitting your resignation to Jerry Sanders III was not a painless exercise, as T. J. Rodgers recounts in his book ‘No Excuses Management’. Rodgers’ VCs, Sevin Rosen, had told him to see Sanders in person to resign when Rodgers wanted to leave AMD to found Cypress. On a Monday morning he went to see Sanders. Jerry was at a ‘strategic planning session’ in Bermuda. Not wanting to wait, Rodgers announced he was leaving. Sanders heard about it and ordered him to fly directly to Bermuda. “I worked all day Monday, flew to New York on the red eye, slept on a bench for two hours at Kennedy Airport, and landed the next morning in Bermuda to see Jerry,” relates Rodgers, “I was still wearing the same suit I had gone to work in on Monday. The weather was hot and tropical,and the suit was sticking to my back. Jerry was in white Bermuda shorts, knee socks, and a bwana shirt. He and two of his top lieutenants spent the next three and a half hours beating the crap out of me.” When he got back to California, the next day, the locks had been changed on his office door and lawyers were going through his files.
