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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to pay attention to employee concerns. Employee feedback is critical to the strategic development of the company growth. Hold open ended conferences with each dept. to decipher needs.

    I worked at AMD full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best thing was a nice work like balance and also nice people to with. Another good reason was that it does a lot of things, so you can potentially work on some things that you like.

    Cons

    The biggest con for me, was that salary was not at the market level and with minimal bonus etc, you pretty much grow very slowly financially.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate people in sync with the market
