    I have been working at AMD full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is big, but the culture and feel is small. There is a collective understanding that we are the underdogs and that translate to a collective march toward our goals. These products power the world and the work you do are truly one of kind and our customers love it. The management teams are laser focus and it’s great to see.

    At the end of the day, you’re not creating an app, a social media website, or anything that is quick to grab eye balls - you are part of teams working to figure out how to power the world’s technology.

    Cons

    The perks are not as great compared to other Bay Area companies. However, you are not a slave and expected to be campus all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the focus, hire passionate folks!
