I have been working at AMD full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great work environment, excellent facilities, I get recognition for good work and performance, good work / life balance, good work culture, well respected company (at least once was).

Cons

IT infrastructure not maintained, poor job stability, company growth is minimal if not absent, salary growth is slow, bonuses are not great, senior management makes poor decisions, lots of layoffs affecting critical resources.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please stop getting rid of critical employees! We are stretched thin as is, and you continue getting rid of all of the people that matter, we will never catch up to the competition.

    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.
