I have been working at AMD

Pros

AMD is an excellent place to work for those seeking to be involved with a company on the cutting edge. As a result of being on the forefront of technology, the work environment fosters innovation.

Cons

I really have to nitpick to find anything bad to say about AMD. The only real downside I'd say, is that as a hardware company, software (software developers etc) is generally the second class citizen in past years. Recently though, that has been changing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management has been doing a good job getting the employees engaged and soliciting feedback, and should continue down that course.

    I have been working at AMD

    Pros

    Flexible work hours
    Managers are quite generous on time off
    AMD supports higher education - process for tuition reimbursement is quite easy

    Cons

    Office is in the middle of no where, at least 2 miles drive to get to any shop - less choices for lunch.
    Lack of bonus, benefit cuts (the last 2 years)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more employee all hands. I don't have any idea how things are going except for my own team.
    Need to make code names simpler. The purpose is to confuse the media but the media seems to figure out eventually but the employees are still confused.

    I have been working at AMD

    Pros

    interesting work
    experienced poeple
    great place to ramp up and see how things are done

    Cons

    tough competition from Intel and NVidia
    company lost money for years now
    promotions/recognitions are slow
    very long work cycles leading to burnout

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is the impression plans are not fully baked and major pieces/dependencies are overlooked in the big picture.

    Find a better way to identify valuable contributors and reward them; promote clear ovnership as a means of motivating people
