I have been working at AMD

Pros

Friendly colleagues, supportive bosses... (depending on team) Generally work life balance is achievable if planning is adequate.

Cons

Knowledge sharing and know-how might not be adequately shared. Fresh entry engineers might feel it hard to keep up...
Promotion and performace rating is hardly based on actual work performance and diligence. Rather it is based on relationship with senior management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower your employees to take on responsibility and not micromanage.... be fair to the people who work hard and contribute; and not to reward the people who "talk the talks" but never take actions to "walk the talk"

    I have been working at AMD

    Pros

    People in AMD are downright good hearted people with brilliant minds.
    I never ever felt I have to always watch my back. I had not met a Micro Manager here. Takes forever to hire (I've put in so many long hours) but they know to hire those who they can trust.
    Very flexible so long am at work at 10am. I have to take kids to day care. Mgt understands parent duties very strongly.
    Management encourages use of vacation/time off.

    Cons

    Promotions take forever. You know other companies are always eyeing AMD people so one's always fighting the thought of moving or staying.
    Constant change in leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't overlook your current employees. Promote as fairly. We are happy when there's a new engineer in the team. Next things we check is the title they were hired into.
