Former Employee - Senior Marketing Manager in Sunnyvale, CA
Former Employee - Senior Marketing Manager in Sunnyvale, CA

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

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
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Nice People with big hearts. Pretty said that the list stops there.

    Cons

    These things never change:
    Bonus payouts are not consistent and typically low
    Layoffs happen alot more at this company. Call it restructuring, I call it losing
    Leadership changes are frequent. If leaders are not performing or staying then why should you
    The promise of a better tomorrow that doesn't come
    Placing bets on yesterday's vision and low margin business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop holding on to the past. Reinvent the company. Cut all the legacy stuff off and innovate a new beginning.
