I have been working at AMD full-time (less than a year)

Pros

1. New leadership is very motivational and execution driven.
2. Potential to do well in business. Opportunity to grow with the potential.
3. Cool technology ; Planned execution ; Good pace (not too fast) of work - enough to pay attention to detail

Cons

1. team-work is a bit lacking. Hopefully the energy from leadership team trickles down.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Track execution and encourage employees to communicate and collaborate.

    I worked at AMD full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    get to work in a cutting edge area.

    Cons

    Retention/job security is a real issue at AMD. Talented engineers are driven away by long work hours, ineffective performance pay (which even if you peform well you won't get paid), and management doesn't set appropriate goals. Innovation is only a buzz word and NOT a real practice. Instead of innovating, engineers are forced to use off the shelf solutions and provide service support instead of doing REAL engineering. AMD is loosing serious talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Innovation should be a real policy and not a buzz word. Taking talented people and reducing them to service industry support engineers will hurt the company.
