Current Employee - Co-Op Engineer in Austin, TX

I have been working at AMD as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Great people, laid back, fun, interesting environment. A lot of knowledgeable employees that for the most part are willing to help you adjust to their environment.

Cons

Hourly workers are asked to work overtime, but not paid for that work. The co-op students are treated like they are completely ignorant, and sometimes ignored completely.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change Co-op students to salary if you aren't going to pay them the hours they work.

Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Stale company, peddling the same business plan from 10 years ago

    Former Employee - SMTS Hardware in Austin, TX
    Former Employee - SMTS Hardware in Austin, TX

    I worked at AMD full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Other prisoners on the sinking ship are generally nice and talented. You can do whatever you want to do, as long as it doesn't require a budget.

    Cons

    There are more VPs than engineers, it seems. Too many directors and higher. They even got rid of the engineer-assisting technicians, which is utterly stupid. They need to innovate by creating their own demand in the market. Layoffs accelerating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create internal autonomous start-ups and bet the future on them. Incentivize the staff of each startup with real revenue sharing plan that is rock solid. Make millionaires out of the teams and attract excellent talent when those happy people retire.

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

    Pros

    Intelligent, hardworking employees. Work-life balance. You'll get to meet great people who want to do their jobs well, and you may even learn a lot from them.

    Cons

    Benefits and perks are minimal. Leadership is void at best. Too many fiefdoms, management don't listen to employees. Career growth is very limited at best, and you constantly have this nagging feeling that you'll get laid off at any time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure if management is doing what's best for themselves or for the company.
