    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!

    Pros

    You have opportunity to work on projects with broad scope that you can impact the company. Company is growing and they value your effort.

    Cons

    Long hours are pretty common. Upper level management keep overworking the engineers by squeezing many projects one after another. There is no rest.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that the engineers are overworking and this is not sustainable in long-term.

    I worked at AMD full-time

    Pros

    Pretty good parental leave program, lots of social events and food, decent benefits

    Cons

    Infrastructure is terrible. Lots of blame, no real direction or support. They are growing and doing well but they don't have the infrastructure to properly support the folks on the inside doing corporate functions.
