fun place to work but a glass ceiling exists for non-technical employees.

Program Manager (Former Employee)
Markham, ON (Canada)

I worked at AMD

ProsThe best reasons to work for AMD can be summarized into 3 points:
1. Excitement- due to the high pace and competitive nature of the video graphics and microprocessor industry, there is a feeling of team competition that fills the air.
2. Work-life- although hours may be long, the atmosphere is very collegial and simply fun. Many co-workers are enthused to join sports team and participate in other recreational activities. Furthermore, AMD is accommodates your personal life by providing flex hours and work-from-home opportunities.
3. Techie Incentives- if you have interest in the high tech industry, employee purchase plans provide significant discounts on the newest toys. Furthermore, the latest and greatest items are available to observe and test- very exciting for a tech enthusiast.

ConsThere are perspectives to this answer. As a technical engineer, the sky is the limit assuming your performance is solid. However, for the non-technical employee, it is very difficult to move upwards into senior ranks.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore communication to all levels of employees.
