Perpetual underdog. Being underdog is good/challenging, but not the perpetual part.

Pros

Challenging place to work. Lots of innovation. Stressful (in a good way) work place.

Cons

Requires strong leadership. Competitve compensation. Mangement needs to take adequate risk.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take adeqate risk. Tackling all market segments with limited resources will result in not getting slice of any market. FOCUS.

    I worked at AMD

    Pros

    The company culture is very relaxed and the people I met there were great. They made me comfortable and allowed me sufficient time to ease into my first real internship.

    Cons

    Worked around the time of the massive layoffs, so my group fell apart and that limited my support system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little bit more involved and offer more feedback; I didn't receive much feedback during my stay.

    Pros

    Salaries are generally above average. Long hours for engineers. They hire well so there is little to no dead weight - overall people are competent and motivated.

    Cons

    Total boom and bust business. Success depends on execution to schedule and focus on schedule is piercing and relentless. Culture encourages risk - maybe too much risk for the company's continued stability and health.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay aggressive but be smart.
