    Pros

    Competitive salary, benefits,etc. Nice people to work with. Company is growing.

    The work seems to be dis-proportioned. Some people are super busy and others not so much. Company is still pretty lean from the last round of layoffs.

    I worked at AMD full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful benefits, attractive office space, diverse workforce, opportunities for travel. Telecommuting is accepted by some divisions. Your experience with this company will depend upon your management team.

    Cons

    This company is in a volatile industry. It seemed to struggle more often than not. Occasionally the company will have a product that puts them back in the black. Those times are awesome, and fleeting. My position was impacted by a RIF. These occur frequently at this company causing low employee morale.

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

    Pros

    Loved the people I worked with, With shrinking workforce there are always abilities to grow and further career. Some potential always there for a great product,,,

    Cons

    Town halls are the same each time. Product direction really like a gamble, not much R&D so its always like rolling the dice with each product launch as to whether it will be good or not,,,

    Advice to Management

    Engage employees, share all news and make everyone feel engaged in the future,


  9. "Advanced technology company in early 2000s"

    Star Star Star Star Star

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Solid technology and research culture with underfunded manufacturing. Plants in Dresden and Austin had first rate engineering talent that delivered significant challenges with limited resources.

    Cons

    At times inconsistent management direction, product design and marketing efforts. IC market, PC market in particular commoditized and experiencong decline in demand

    Pros

    It was a great work Environment and they had a wonderful office culture that made you actually feel apart of the company. This is also one of the very few companies where I had a chance to actually talk to the CEO...in person! Anything you need or want for you to do your job will be given to you (within reason). Management is just around to corner and if your not an expert in one area just reach out and ask.

    Cons

    Cubicles are a mood killer but they try hard to make up for it!

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the cubicles!
