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

    Pros

    Work/life balance strongly encouraged along with continuous learning. AMD can be considered alpha testers with new technology, giving focused employees constant exposure.

    Cons

    don't expect guidance from management for growth beyond the current position; use the work/ live balance, down time and flexibility to develop your own plan of growth, execute it, and give management the option to get on board or out of the way.

    Good work should be appreciated.

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

    Pros

    Good salary
    Smart engineers
    Good product roadmap
    Strong executive management

    Cons

    Senior mgt (directors and many cvp) as a general rule - horrible
    Sales & marketing are weak. Not enough adult supervision from exec mgt
    Need to clean house in client & server sales & marketing
    Invest in building your market
    Benefits (insurance, etc) have gone way down hill
    Politics are toxic

    Advice to Management

    Clean house in client & server marketing/sales. You have a combination of people who have been here too long and combined with bad & toxic newcomers. Don't be fooled by good numbers that are a result of EPYC. Look at whether your team is building upon the great product.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what your doing

    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.

    "Senior Fellow"

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Because so many of the most experienced and talented people have already left, there are probably opportunities for less experienced people interested in on-the-job training

    Cons

    AMD doesn't have time for trial-and-error and senior leadership is highly reactionary, a bad combination in an industry where it takes years to design and build a product

    Advice to Management

    Separate current product design and operations from long term strategic planning and investments (current leadership doesn't know how to do the latter)
