Good company. Some of best engineers but too much layoff.

I have been working at AMD full-time (less than a year)

Pros

AMD is one of the oldest companies in Silicon Valley. There are many old engineers who are really diligent and respectable.
Company is still driving some innovative projects. I mean new direction not only some new families of products.
Flexible work schedule. Friendly coworkers.

Cons

Too much layoff which force lots of smart people leave. This is definitely a PAIN for a company in Silicon Valley. Especially, most directly join your competitors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't know if company still values loyalty. If so, how could you let your smart engineers leave? Engineers should have a big SAY for the products not marketing guys.

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

    Pros

    Smart people, interesting projects, cutting edge products. There is a lot of opportunity to work on the next big thing, You have the freedom to do out of the box thinking. The managers I've worked with have been very supportive.

    Cons

    The environment is very unstable at this time rumors of more layoffs q1 2013. Unsure of the company direction, which leads to former product areas being cut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Working there at this point in time is working under the axe. Morale is low.
