    Good immediate management. Fairly open in decision making processes and good benefits.

    Never know if the next new CVP will decide to move your job elsewhere. Or do layoffs.

    Pros

    Great health benefits and nice 401k. Great CAD and IT support. In general a comfortable work environment with folks that really want to resolve problems.

    Cons

    I saw very few Cons at AMD. A couple are loss of 1 month Sabatical after 5 yrs worked and loss of ESPP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    AMD offers tremendous growth opportunities for circuit design engineers. Designers at AMD are encouraged to reach their full potential and get great support from their managers.

    Cons

    CAD development and CAD management are weak points for AMD. The culture behind it does not promote good software design practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    AMD senior management needs to listen to the engineers and not just the MBAs if they are going to succeed.

    Pros

    Talented people and the freedom and opportunities given.

    AMD is not profitable and they can't continue this way. We need to keep the people we have a keep compensating them well to remain competitive.

    I have been working at AMD

    Pros

    There is lots of freedom as an engineer to propose ideas and work on them. The company is small enough that an individual has the opportunity to have a real impact on the company, but big enough to have a real impact on the industry

    Cons

    The company is not competing well against Intel, so the bonuses and raises are small. Senior management has no ability to make a successful strategy, or even know how to develop a feasible strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First, learn how to schedule a project. Then, come up with a plan involving successful projects. Last, have a strategy for dealing with our competitors.
