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
