Interesting Work, Great Co-Workers, but You will never get Rich Working at AMD!

Department Manager (Former Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I worked at AMD

ProsThere is always something interesting to work on and you can create your own opportunities. It is easy to work with other employees in different job areas and locations. If you have a good idea and you can sell the idea to management you can go ahead with the project.

ConsCompany does not make money! Stock options are worthless. 401K match is sub-standard. Senior Management is not competent. All the IT systems are totally inadequate - its VERY FRUSTRATING when email goes down a few times a year for no apparent reason!

Advice to Senior ManagementStart making changes that will enable the company to be profitable.

Lots of Opportunity, but need a serious focus on products that make money.

Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at AMD


Pros: Opportunities to come in and help turn the ship around.… Cons: This is not a culture of change. You have to lead people slowly to the right conclusion, and make them think it was… Advice to Senior Management: Hold folks accountable for product/product launch miscues over the last 18 months. Work on improving the culture into one that at least appears to care… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
