    I worked at AMD full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work is interesting and will keep you motivated as long as you are satisfied with just a tap on your back.

    Cons

    Shares are up, but don't let that fool you. CEO gets 5 million RSUs, an engineer gets next to nothing. Yearly bonus is just 33% of the contractual bonus, which is improvement compared to 20% in previous years, but still very low. Just ask yourself - if they can't pay their employees contractual bonus even when stock price goes up 600%, when do you think they will? Basic compensation is also lower than average.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they deserve and you might manage to keep them! Lisa Su asks her employees every single quarter to work 105%, but then pays them 85%. Shameless.

    Pros

    None I can think of

    fierce politics, almost ruthless struggle between teams who compete, unstable, and dangerous future. People will set a trap on other people to sacrifices the unfortunate so they can be saved from next round of layoff
