I have been working at AMD

Pros

1. My manager recongnized me and provided me a lot of opportunities.
2. I have a chance to learn a lot of new technology.

Cons

1. The package is not competitive.
2. The sites worldwide are too many. Thus, the co-work among different sites are not efficient because fo different time zone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I wish to re-value some many sites, especially R&D since I don't see any benefit from it. What I see is that the people needs to spend much time on communication among different sites.

    I worked at AMD

    Pros

    - If you don't like to do any actual work, you can get away with a lot of that here.
    - The pay is fair.
    - it's a big organization so there is potential for career growth

    Cons

    - Management doesn't recognize the value of curiosity
    - Critical roles assigned to unreliable interns
    - Low morale among coworkers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deal with the people who spend all day on youtube.
    Promote curiosity as it is a requirement for creativity and education.
    Don't expect your interns to work on-call in a critical role
    Be flexible with task assignments to interns

    I have been working at AMD

    Pros

    My particular job is relatively low pressure and I have been given some degree of control over what I work on.

    Cons

    It is a big company that is spread over many countries (many time zones, languages). Management is completely focused on getting the next products out the door and does not care about employee career development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It might be typical for large companies but it would be nice to see managers communicate and cooperate better with each other rather than trying to protect their own little empires.
