      Pros

      What a great iconic coming to work for. You work hard here but you learn a lot and then make sure you get what you need to do your job.

      Cons

      You have to fight tooth and nail to get a promotion or a raise here. If you're talented it's possible but you quickly get behind new people hired in. I was here for the dark days and I'm almost penalized for it

      Stimulating environment, great culture, but some frustrations and crunch.

      Pros

      You'll be working with and making meaningful contributions towards getting cutting edge technology into the market. The culture is collaborative and some of your coworkers are leaders in their area. Lots of opportunity to learn and grow while building cool stuff.

      Cons

      Schedules can be pretty aggressive, and resourcing tends to be lean. Unfortunately, past crunch or missed deadlines don't always lead to institutional learning for the next project, which can be frustrating.

      Lot of politics and favoritism based on race

      Pros

      Good projects and very good CEO

      Cons

      Because of politics and favoritism most of the times even though work is excellent there is less motivation. Pay wise they do poor compared to any other silicon company and we can’t even ask for good pays. Promotions are stalled only if manager is a partial person. As Chinese team is involved they are trying to get Asian culture into the team where no one says no to boss even when he is wrong . I work at Orlando site and if you are getting a better opportunity else where please do go there AMD no doubt looks cool from out but is worst place to be in
