    Pros

    Great team to work with! Multi-site collaboration with world class engineers in Sunnyvale CA, Boxborough MA, Orlando FL, Austin TX, Markham Canada, Shanghai China, Bangalore India, etc. Designing state-of-the-art graphics processors for high end gaming PCs and consoles is very satisfying. The work environment is casual and you can pretty much set your own hours as long as you deliver on your individual commitments and attend key meetings.

    Cons

    The company stock price could be a bit higher to make company stock rewards more valuable. If AMD can "make the turn" and Rory Read says, then AMD will be back on track with Wall Street.

    Pros

    - Still some good engineering talent and innovation happening
    - Relaxed environment - casual dress, flexible hours
    - Starting to make a turnaround and become profitable

    Cons

    - Financially challenged, really small bonuses if any
    - Constant layoffs are keeping people on edge
    - Not a lot of faith in senior leadership
    - Marketing organization has collapsed under new leadership, very low morale and little progress. Many talented people have left.

    Advice to Management

    The Values of the company as stated are great.... but leadership should live 'the AMD Way'.
