    I worked at AMD full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with at AMD were among the best and brightest group that I have ever worked with. They were brilliant, committed, focused, and passionate.

    Cons

    The leadership at AMD seem to have completely lost their direction and are more concerned with protecting what they seem to have rather then engage with the future.

    Advice to Management

    You are dismantling a company that once was poised for greatness. If you continue down the path you are on the result will be a company worth only what it's composite parts will bring in a bargain bin

    I have been working at AMD full-time

    Pros

    1) You will get to work on some of the best in class technologies. 2) Money if you have the right skills 3) Work life balance 4) Culture among engineers is good. But unfortunately.. the managers don't seem to understand what their engineers can achieve.

    Cons

    1) It is a trigger happy management. Especially throwing away valuable engineers 2) In my experience the head has no accountability. Promises a lot and does nothing. Some requests were pending for 1.5 years even after promises of completion in a month's time. 3) The management retains submissive people. 4) I find senior engineers refusing actual engineering work and instead expect couple of folks that would work under their useless guidance.. to usurp the visibility that the low level engineer should be getting. They are also not technically good to be called seniors.

    Advice to Management

    Please put the company before yourselves and your position.
