Pros

The people on my team. Very smart and dedicated.

Cons

Financial Uncertainty of the company. Multiple rounds of layoffs over past year.

Advice to Management

Do one big cut, not lots of small cuts. Explain to us how you are reducing real estate costs. Address the rumor that a buyer for ONE AMD Place is the reason we went through a disruptive physical move Be more communicative. Most things I hear on the web about AMD are then confirmed by AMD mgmt days later. gg

    Pros

    This is a fast-paced competitive industry -- lots to learn and a lot of very bright folks are working at AMD. The company facilitates knowledge sharing between projects, employees, disciplines. It is very easy to be involved in several projects around the company. AMD does not have much cash to spare, every project is effectively viewed as key, and this is personally rewarding. Relationships between employees are good, cordial. Some people are good friends outside of work, work-relations are very good.

    Cons

    Benefits are so-so. AMD's competitive advantage is difficult to maintain, and in the CPU industry there is no place for misstep. With little cash in the bank account it isn't clear where AMD is heading next...

    Advice to Management

    Regain a strategic and executable vision

    Exciting work and good pay, if a little unstable at times

    Pros

    It's one of the highest profile tech companies, due to the fact that there are really only two companies making microprocessors for the whole world. As a result, you get to work with some of the most advanced technologies and designs. The people are all very laid back and great to work with, and will even stop their own work to help you. There is a real sense of community. People don't just go to work and go home to their separate lives, they actually hang out outside of work. Lastly, there is very little inter-departmental politics, in-fighting, and rampant backstabbing, unlike at some other microprocessor company.

    Cons

    Instability due to the fact your only competitor is a ruthless behemoth.

    Advice to Management

    Quit changing road maps all the time.
