    You work on latest technologies, sometimes, on many technologies at once.

    I worked at AMD as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. You get to work on the latest technology and that too from the scratch.
    2. Lots of scope for learning and personal development.
    3. A contractor is equally respected and treated as a full-time employee. (But this is changing now, at least in Bangalore office)
    4. Flexible work hours/office buses/night cabs if you work late.

    Cons

    1. Work pressure has increased and hence, work-life balance is greatly affected, especially for the contractors.
    2. Bangalore office far off from the city adds to the travel time and unnecessary stress.
    3. Poor project management. Higher management wants to achieve many things with limited resources and time which sometimes leads to chaos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    AMD was very good 3-4 years ago. Please try to achieve and maintain that. It will take sometime to be profitable.
