I worked at AMD full-time for 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.

    Interesting work, but company in constant state of transition

    I have been working at AMD

    Pros

    The opportunity to work on advanced technology is a plus. Pay is reasonable considering the company's financial challenges over the past few year.

    Cons

    Company has been going through a lot of necessary changes as it adapts to the eroding PC market. This causes a lot of projects to get canceled (and work to get wasted). It can be hard to get things done due to tight budgets. Base pay has remained reasonable, but bonuses have been somewhat limited for the past several years due to the company trying to survive.

  2.  

    Lay offs are always on the back of your mind.
