    Pros

    Company with some tremendous talent, but many have become disengaged or have left for other opportunities.
    The turnaround strategy seems sound, but may be to0 far behind to catch up.
    Fairly flexible schedule overall so there can be a balance.

    Cons

    Agree with some of the other marketing posts that bringing in someone who talks a good game with little true experience or leadership has hurt the marketing team significantly. Many from the team have left due to poor treatment and lack of leadership. As the team shrinks many positions are not being refilled so that does put a fair amount of stress on the people that remain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a few minutes to talk to the employees who are a few layers down from the top. They have may good perspectives that likely aren't heard because are too concerned for their jobs to elevate issues. Ensure your leadership is living the 'AMD Way'.
