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.

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

    Pros

    There were some very smart people to work with and learn from when i started at AMD

    Cons

    All the good people left and we started hiring big names who came there because they did something in their previous job. Gave them large salaries, big positions and took all motivation away from them to work and prove something anymore ..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring names and look for people who are motivated to build something instead of hiring people who want to tell people what to build ..

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    better rewards to employees.
