I have been working at AMD full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Really talented group of engineers. Can attack any problem head-on and will come up neat solutions.

Cons

Unrealistic schedule with not enough background analysis of the requirements/features has led to chaotic project execution and sub-optimal design. This impacted work/life balance very negatively.

    So much potential, but where are the visionary leaders?

    I have been working at AMD full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Despite all the engineering/technical talent that has left in the past several years (mostly by choice, although layoffs have been devastating to morale as well as productivity), there are still some pretty sharp people around who want to do amazing things and might actually know how if given a chance and some breaks.

    Cons

    Despite their many years of experience, none of the most senior leaders has experience in a role similar to what they are currently in, none has been faced with the internal and external challenges facing AMD, most do not really understand the semiconductor industry or the markets AMD is targeting, and sadly, none really have the support of the employee population anymore (that started evaporating almost two years ago).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Probably can't replace senior leaders at this point as few really experienced leaders would want to come to AMD. That means the ones we have better get much smarter and skillful much quicker.
