Pros

Nice environment, nice people. Manager cares about increasing the skill set of young engineers. Cool work and cutting edge technologies.

Cons

No solid compensation for good performers. Hard to get promotion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

We are proud to be an AMDer. Reward good performers who deserve it. It's ashamed to tell our friends that a great company as AMD is saving money by paying less and holding promotions.

    Pros

    Smart and competent colleagues. Interesting and challenging projects. Open atmosphere with lots of opportunities to make an impact. Abundant compute and license resources for most jobs. Reasonable work/life balance with flexible hours. Good telecommuting infrastructure.

    Cons

    The company has been struggling financially the last few years. Unpleasant actions such as layoff rounds, salary cuts, and mandatory vacations have occurred at various times. Bonus payouts have been low or non-existent due to poor financial performance. Road map has been unstable with project cancellations as a result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Size resources to project goals properly to ensure a high chance of success. Avoid constant road map changes.

    Current Employee - Member of Technical Staff in Austin, TX

    Pros

    The engineering talent is fantastic. Lots of smart people here. There's a lot of cutting edge technology still at AMD, so you're still working on products that have never existed before. Although some compensation perks have faded out (ESPP, sabbatical program), compensation is still pretty good.

    Cons

    Lots of upper management changes in the last few years has resulted in constantly shifting priorities, processes, ad roadmaps. You never quite feel in a place of stability. It's introduced a lot of politics as middle management tries to figure out how to please upper managers.
