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

Pros

* there are many knowledgeable engineers to learn from, nice to work with
* get to expose to wider technical area than some competitors
* typically flexible work schedules
* proud to be one of the very few companies to design everyday and high end CPUs

Cons

* not paying well at least for recent years (the company is in bad shape financially)
* medical benefit so so

    I worked at AMD

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Slackers and politically correct folks can get paid for doing nothing.

    Cons

    Many bad managers that are ready to throw their resources under the bus. No focus on training or career development. Your manager will try to supress your growth to save his/her job. Redundancies in processes across organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on hiring and retaining intelligent and driven folks. Lay off old timers who take fat salaries and are rigid to change.
