    I have been working at AMD full-time

    Pros

    - Incredibly smart people
    - Incredibly passionate people
    - Technical staff are held in high regard
    - If you have a legitimate question, you can find the owner of a component (usually a Fellow or higher) and ask them about it -- no need to go through red tape
    - The CEO (Lisa) is very down to earth and straight talking, unlike other companies I've worked at. Her chief officers are also very capable and competent.
    - Making a comeback with their new products

    Cons

    - Competent people often get pulled into work that's not their job
    - Decision making is not decisive or timely
    - Needs to hire more

    Advice to Management

    Organize better and hire more

    Highly intelligent coworkers, great work environment, amazing benefits. The ability to move around inside the company to learn all kinds of new skills.

    The cyclical tendencies of the industry and far too many layoffs are the only drawbacks. You are expected to work a lot.

    Keep on doing what your doing

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

    Pros

    Best machines to work on, newest technologies, best-in-class software tools, best design flows with great support, exciting projects.

    Cons

    Management forces many engineers have a very narrow work focus; those with a desire to work on a broad set of tasks are frowned upon. Management oftentimes plays favorites, whether by age, race, or location.

    I worked at AMD full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You will learn a lot and learn to prioritize your time. Very exciting time at AMD right now. Lots of growth and positive excitement about the future. Dr. Lisa Su's vision seems to be taking off in the right direction.

    Cons

    Staffing is limited due to budget constraints. Salaries are lower. If you want a raise, get another job. They will often throw money at you.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize employees for doing their jobs. Stop throwing money at people who are leaving. This reduces the money you can give to people who are engaged, working really hard, and making the work happen.

    very relaxed job compared to Nvidia

    Cons

    Don't respect employee. Management doesn't take care of the employee.
