I worked at AMD full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

great graphics technology, good work-life balance most of the time, some good research opportunities, relaxed work ethic, nice coworkers, not too much local politics

Cons

this company is a chronic underachiever and so cannot attract talented executives (who are compensated in relation to the company profits). managers range from incompetent to lackluster. An engineering career will go nowhere here but you may gain valuable experience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

resign and break up the company

Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at AMD as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    You work for a company with a good reputation, reasonably relaxed atmosphere, and the most beautiful buildings I've ever worked in.

    Cons

    Nothing ever seemed to go right for AMD, and it always felt like people were just on the edge of jumping ship for somewhere that wasn't experiencing wave after wave of layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please convince us that everything will go right soon- between being unable to yield at GF (Who I would love to abandon), getting beat by Intel, and the constant layoffs, morale is incredibly low.

    I have been working at AMD

    Pros

    People and work-life balance is really good. Work culture is very flexible. No restrictions on time. Projects are cutting edge. Get to explore different aspects of design in a project

    Cons

    Management is okay, not great. Company in general is doing okay
    Other places have better compensation overall. Perks are negligible. Market for PCs is shrinking so company need's different plans longer term. Layoffs and project cancellations are frustrating

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Roadmap needs to be well-defined and we need good design wins
