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 worked at AMD full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice environment as far as buildings/location at the Austin campus. Most people were great, worked hard and very loyal

    Cons

    NEVER see this company as an advancement in a career and NEVER count on it for long term stability. Your best off looking for other work if you are still employed and leave on your own terms because the next layoff is ticking closer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They would not take it even if given. Rory Read needs to go for starters!
