I have been working at AMD full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Ability to work from home, friendly coworkers

Cons

Management is poor, pay is average but bonuses are lousy (if they ever occur). The company has been in a tailspin which has accelerated in the last year. There is much dissatisfaction and concern among coworkers about the company's viablility. Also poor recognition of effort regarding promotions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Optimism ran high in the company a year ago but has since evaporated. Share with the employees why current plan to turn the company around are expected to work when so many other plans have failed.

    It's a good starting job, but as it's a large company you have to fight to keep learning.

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

    Pros

    There are lots of colleagues who you can learn from, and as it's a large company, you can move around from group to group as you would like.

    Cons

    The hours can be long depending on which part of the project cycle you are on. Sometimes it's not bad, but at crunch time, they can be really demanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to retain employees somehow. Lots of engineers are fleeing to Apple. AMD totally missed the mobile market, and they are still losing to Intel. The last time they excelled was during the AMD Opteron years, and they haven't done well since.

    I have been working at AMD full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and decent salary. God help you if you get hired at the wrong salary or level though - nearly impossible to get a promotion, let alone raised a couple of levels. No real rewards for success other than staying on your boss's good side.

    Cons

    No real business processes or infrastructure. No career path. The company is basically run on personality. Who is loudest, who sounds the most convincing in a meeting. Timelines and plans are thrown out the window every time someone yells louder or someone leaves and someone new comes in. No wonder the company is struggling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on a few markets, clean house at VP level, streamline.
