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

    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.

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

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    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,
