    I worked at AMD full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The founder, Jerry Sanders greatly appreciated the employees. Thus stockpiling great employee loyalty. The compensation was distributed fairly under his regime. Hector Ruiz followed as CEO who brought fiscal discipline but lacked true vision. The coworkers were of the MOST helpful I encountered, especially during the reign of Sanders, Ruiz, and Meyer. Later CEOs and upper management caused the culture to turn downward whereby employees were only worried about themselves.

    Cons

    The company sets unrealistic goals and refuses to listen from below. Recently, in the past 5 years, management has abused and eroded employee loyalty. The company lacks vision and has changes course too frequently.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house at the Director and VP levels. Listen to the people doing the work. Stop putting your own goals ahead of the company's. After all, it's putting food on your table.
