    I have been working at AMD full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, People are friendly and treat you with respect and allow you to do your work without a lot of micro managing.

    Cons

    Bean counters seem to slowly be taking away a lot of our benefits. No more cashing out your vacation time or personal attendance bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    It might be a good idea if some of the upper management would come down to the working areas (test floor) for a day to see some of the real problem people are face.

    Pros

    AMD has some great, smart people who are pleasant to work with and who desire to create world class products.

    Cons

    Like many companies with products that have long lead times, AMD has some struggles to find their niche and adapt to the rapidly changing development paradigm.

    Advice to Management

    Take care that you do not get in the way of your own success. Incorporate more reusable components into your processes and products.

    I worked at AMD full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some of the people. Interesting work - only duopoly on earth so dynamics are there.

    Cons

    My immediate supervisor was great. Be on the lookout for the bear-claw climbers that will slash you, and you work associate, to get ahead not on merit but on "managing-upward" as they say.

    Advice to Management

    AMD was once the place that everyone admired and all employees were proud to call home. Now, they have had 4 CEO's in 7 years -- the cavalier culture and get it dome attitude is al but gone. NOW - all that you see are senior executives BUTT COVERING, manipulating, and hiding facts from other department heads as well as senior execs to save/maintain a paycheck. I hope that AMD can pull out of this and be that company that is once was in the early 2000's.

    I have been working at AMD full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I am having difficulty coming up with any pros here.

    Cons

    Their IT department is in Penang. Expect difficulties with trying to get anything done IT wise. They have outsourced so many jobs to out of the country, yet they continue to have layoffs. There is no job security here. It's pretty pathetic. The cafeteria is mediocre.

    Advice to Management

    Sell.

    I worked at AMD as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have free unlimited coffee inside the campus, that's all I can say.

    Cons

    Ever since I joined, I have seen lots of laid-off. Last year they laid off 7% of the work-force which is 1200 people. They laid off 3000 people in the year 2012, company is not stable. Management have no clue and I have seen them browsing youtube, etc. After I left this company, there were another big round of laid-off. They even laid off their CIO and CTO recently. I have not learned anything as there were no work in the first place.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people until your company become very stable
