I worked at AMD

Pros

Salary ranges were good. Many good colleagues. Challenging problems to solve, and a good environment for generating solutions, at least in the EDA tools space.

Cons

Understaffed in many areas. Management did not seem to be in touch with the difficulties of the day to day work going on. The environment of multi-site splitting of projects and staff made ongoing cooperation difficult. A feeling of a very reactive company to attempt to fill the needs of the marketplace, especially trying to catch up to competition. A culture based on reward and recognition and individual accomplishments, which translated to a culture where sharing of knowledge seemed to be restricted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The employees should be treated more as valuable resources than cogs in the wheel. There are many talented people who feel frustrated by the direction of the company and the changes in project direction over the years.

    Pros

    AMD provides good benefits, most of the talent is good. Company is big so there are opportunities in many areas of technology.

    Cons

    AMD doesn't reward loyalty to the company. In past experience if employees leave to go to another company and come back, they get better pay and better position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better communication of overall company strategy to employees. Cascading the direction down to employees make us understand how we fit better.
