Former Employee - Member of Technical Staff Design Engineer in Boxborough, MA
Former Employee - Member of Technical Staff Design Engineer in Boxborough, MA

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

Pros

Some very talented and intelligent engineers that were great to work with

Cons

Management completely screwed up with constant thrashing of projects and no clear direction that they are taking the company, if they continue this way they will not survive.
Hire and fire mindset, fire employees to make the financials look good then months later hiring again. Very shady, I know of a woman that was on maternity leave and was laid off.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Come up with a concrete plan/direction and stick to it.

    Former Employee - Senior Design Engineer in Austin, TX

    I worked at AMD full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interesting design problems
    Great base level talent in some parts of the company

    Cons

    Management has become increasingly focused on internal politics
    Very long hours are expected
    Tops-down decision making has caused some of the top talent to leave - or be let go for disagreeing
    Lackluster company performance has made for inconsistent bonus payouts and frequent layoffs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove directors and VPs with high attrition rates, the problems are mostly at this level and there is a reason people are running away.
