    "AMD has severe MANAGEMENT ISSUES"

    I worked at AMD full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not much to write about.

    Cons

    AMD has severe MANAGEMENT ISSUES. Stay away from this company.. Last month, they sent a bunch of offers for new employees to join. But, then they withdrew the offers, just 2 weeks before the join date due to change in business plans. In essence, they screwed the new hires even before they could have joined the company.

    In my experience, They don't care about employees. Layoffs happen annually, and only the most desperate people tend to work at AMD. If you are desperate, go ahead take your chance, but your offer might get withdrawn even before you join the company.

    Compensation is about 20% below market average.

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

    Pros

    Close to leading edge technology and products in many cases
    Knowledgeable co-workers and good teamwork
    Decent pay and benefits

    Cons

    Often very high pressure
    Projects sometimes cancelled late in development cycle
    Organizational churn
    Design team saddled with a heavy-weight design flow that takes away from design time

    Advice to Management

    Target business opportunities carefully. Value and reward technical contributions more than fitting into a company mold. Promote cross-team exposure for engineers.

    Pros

    Depending on the department you work at. Things can be relatively friendly and having minimal politics. Engineers can just focus on the job that they need to be doing.

    Cons

    Company is supposedly on a rebound. but time will tell
    Increment is very little

    Pros

    Great place to work, great team and lot of in campus activities within the company. Lots of volunteering opportunities too and a chance to work with different teams

    Cons

    Most of the time, don't know what the other team is upto. Cafeteria is pretty average and expensive for being in campus

    Advice to Management

    Great job! Please organize more activities for co ops and interns. Also hire more co ops as full time employees

    I have been working at AMD full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've been working at AMD for almost 10 years now in Product Development (PPE). There's always problems to tackle and encouragement for improvement, which keeps things interesting day to day.

    Cons

    We've been resource constrained for some years now. Work can obviously get stressful at times. Fighting fires is not out of the ordinary in PPE.

    Advice to Management

    i've seen co-workers of mine doing the same type of roles for years based on where they started, but it doesn't necessarily best match their skillset. I think a lot more could be done by management to help with the growth of the individual employee.
