I worked at AMD full-time

Pros

Good technology, especially graphics. Definitely the current APU (single-SoC CPU + GPU + support) leader. Dynamic environment, plenty of opportunity.

Cons

Too much churn in project definition and priorities. Need better alignment of cross-organization priorities. Some groups become way over-stretched.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Share more than near-term/mid-term strategies/directions with employees; only knowing the next step does not build confidence and vision of where AMD is going. Improve resource balancing - understand the level of demand on each group and adjust.

No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at AMD full-time

    Pros

    You get to work with some of the most talent engineers in the business and can contribute at a very high level on most projects (if you can navigate the constant changes pushed down from the top)

    Cons

    Constant churn on all fronts, it's like the a big tumbler for bingo balls and every once in a while a product pops out of the randomness. Teams are in silos and there is a significant lack of cross functional communication and alignment of goals/strategies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create: 1. a stable road map to execute to 2. a vision for where we need to be in 2 and 5 years 3. challenge the leadership to achieve that vision across the company (not in each silo). Stop the BS cheer leading to only do a 180 on strategy a few weeks later.

    Too much management turnover
    Can be difficult to get at the correct grade level based on experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take more chances
