Good team or people but too much fat in the executive row!

Pros

Good people and teamwork. The tough competitive environment makes the success of each project counts and demands innovative ideas. You'll take on more responsibilities than in a bigger company. AMD always gives back to its community through donations and volunteer works

Cons

Management, management, and management! Top management doesn't know how to evaluate deals or make good decisions. There isn't enough accountability on senior executives. The company is extremely top heavy. Communivation from management is poor and employees are usually the last to know any news.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of half the VPs and Directors, then hire more people who actually know how to deliver.

    Company's inability to get focused detracts from their opportunity for success

    Pros

    Great, new eco-friendly campus outside of Austin. Free, on-site health club. So many things wrong with this company that if you can be part of the solution, you can really make a difference and get noticed.

    Cons

    Where do I start? This is a company that talks the talk and then goes back to business as usual with their blinders on and no regard to the fact that they can't reliably ship products that meet customer expectations. They switch gears every couple of months because they never give any changes long enough to take hold and make a difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get focused, get aligned and then deliver your message - one, unified message - that you stand behind, up and down the ranks.

    Pros

    AMD provides good pay for the industry to attract people

    Cons

    It is like watching a train wreck - you can see it coming but there's no getting out of the way. The constant reorganization and direction changes are dizzying to say the least.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pretending; if you don't know something, find someone who does. at the end of the day, there are 2 types of people, those who makes things happen, and those to whom things are always happening to. Try to be the former, not the latter.
