    I have been working at AMD full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company had a good family culture for a while but soon faded when the lack of roadmap and the constant back stabbing of people within your organization happens when the try to protect their own jobs

    Cons

    Everything after 2011 was a complete disaster. Only look at this place if you are willing to work for a 1.5 year stint otherwise you will have a target on your head for layoff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to get a clue on how to keep this company afloat.

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

    Pros

    Ultra High-tech firm with access to cutting edge technologies.

    Health benefits exceeded the industry standard. I never paid anything except a small co-pay, even for major surgery.

    Absolutely amazing colleagues. Some of the brightest minds in the world work there.

    Cons

    What you’re hired at was about as good as it gets. The company would consistently hire very senior level people, at very competitive salaries, and then assign them a title that would limit their potential for receiving any significant form of raise. Most often the salary increases wouldn’t even cover increases in cost of living (not good for a long term career). Often when referring people into he company we would inform them to only accept a position if the company agreed to change the title to a higher level, thus forcing them to be hired at the bottom of the salary range with room for salary increases.

    The Information Technology teams were re-organized SIX TIMES from the beginning of 2010 to the latter half of 2012. By the end the staff was “siloed” into groups based on very specific functions, and none of these groups communicated well. This made it impossible to complete any project. By the end of this time it was common to say “If you don’t like what you’re doing, just wait two months”.

    If you are not located in Austin, TX then you will often get overlooked (referred to internally as “Good ole Boy Syndrome”)

    There is a major lack of focus from upper management (Director up), and middle management is horribly overworked (promotion to management was considered a death sentence).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus!!!
