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

    AMD has a very good work environment. People are allowed to express their ideas and opinions freely. The pressure is limited, and people are promoted based on actual work, not who kisses ass the best

    Cons

    Management at times is disconnected from their employees. The hands on manager is hard to come by. Very few personal relations exist between management and employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more involved, learn how to actually motivate and keep good moral. Read one of Jim Collin's books, this should be a requirement for managers, especially needed at AMD
