    I have been working at AMD full-time

    Pros

    Great employees who never stop; bleeding edge products

    Cons

    Always in crisis mode; competing against all the big names (Intel, Nvidia, etc.) so always fighting to gain edge

    Advice to Management

    When everything is a priority, nothing is a priority

    I worked at AMD full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Medical benefit package is decent. The majority of the engineers there are good people.

    Cons

    Management is extremely dishonest and cannot be trusted. Avoid AMD at all costs!
    I personally know of three good engineers who were let go under very dishonest circumstances - basically, management lied about their performance, and then lied about what they could do to keep their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Resign in disgrace and find someone honest to replace you.
