Pros

Lots of very smart people, can have interesting products depending on which sub division you are in

Cons

Chaotic, highly political, despite a reasonably flat organization very title driven, if you are not part of one of the fiefdoms you are not valuable

Advice to ManagementAdvice

stop thinking that Austin is the center of the universe and think about long term strategy not next quarter

Doesn't Recommend

    Current Employee - ASIC/Layout Design Engineer II  in  Orlando, FL

    Pros

    There is a lot of opportunity to grow and direct your career. The company is fairly open, decisions seem to be communicated when they are made, and we are generally free to cross chat between teams. Most low to mid level managers seem to have been engineers, so they tend to have a good grasp over the full process of the groups they manage. Most of the high level mangers have been with AMD or some other semiconductor company for most of their careers. In the Orlando office, we have been hiring a lot of younger engineers.

    Cons

    Changes to catch up with the market have caused a lot of shifts over the past couple years. Pay is competitive, but not great. Internal awards tend to go to customer facing teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more to encourage communication between groups; more social events.
