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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Culture, pay is competitive, great benefits, great co-workers- There are opportunities for advancement- I appreciate the casual nature of the workplace- the flexibility in work from home is nice as well.

    Cons

    life balance is tough, industry swings are difficult, work loads tend to be too much at times... the senior management team has mostly turned over in the last year or so (a sign of the difficulties in the industry as well as new CEO), decisions in the organization should be made quicker and more decisively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to the company is to stay the course with the shift in products on the roadmap...
