    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Best work/life balance of any tech company I've worked for. Challenges employees to get better and stay current in the field. Great communication about direction of the company and personal career path and goals.

    Cons

    Salary and benefits have been lagging behind competition for a while. OpEx focus causes some areas to be chronically understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communication open as it has been, continue to recognize the hard work and dedication of engineers, but don't turn it into a pep rally. Most engineers are realists, just tell them the truth, good or bad.

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

    Pros

    The people. The culture. There is always work to do and room to be innovative. This includes both incredible product churns and opportunities to do research on future products.

    Cons

    Too ambitious for the staffing. Reform for this has already happened. However, this has resulted in some uncertainty among the staff about the companies long term plans.
