    Pros

    You can jump in, learn some good technology, but if you stay for long time the 'cons' would get on your way. Good luck!

    Cons

    High politics, low pay, management cares only about themselves and how to keep their budget tight.

    Pros

    Competitive salary, reasonable work-life balance.

    Senior management hunkered-down to maintain status quo.
    Corporate culture of mediocrity and ultra conservative design targets/performance and schedule.

    Advice to Management

    End the endemic sandbagging. Stop playing the safe game and drive your teams for excellence.

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

    Pros

    The schedule is generally flexible and you are treated like a professional; left alone to get your work done.

    Cons

    There are so many meetings! Also things always are changing so it can be chaotic.

    Advice to Management

    It's generally a good place to work. But stop rewarding people for changing things just to change things. Implement stable processes and minimize meetings. They are crazy excessive.

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

    Pros

    None I can think of

    Cons

    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

    "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 If you are desperate, go ahead take your chance, but your offer might get withdrawn even before you join the company.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.
