    I worked at AMD full-time

    Even though being an established company, they only have a small number of employees compared to other companies in the Semiconductor industry. Consequently, one always gets significant amount work.

    Cons

    Never had a complaint in two years.

    Market the products well and give better incentive for people to join.

    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

    - 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
