    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.

    Pros

    I loved the culture and the people I worked with. You will be surrounded by some of the smartest people you have ever worked with.

    Cons

    Multiple downsizes while I was working there, and they outsourced a large part of IT to a third party.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Good care for the employee

    Cons

    Company business is somewhat unstable that makes employee worry about.

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

    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!

    Pros

    Company has a huge heart and wants to succeed. Loyal employees with great talent. They fight the good fight.

    Cons

    Poor business outlook. Massive attrition over the last 3-5 years. Most all perks have been laid to rest. Severance packages are not what they used to be.

    I worked at AMD full-time

    Pros

    I worked with a lot of great people. As with any company, it was easy to second-guess management decisions.

    Cons

    The company is forever chomping at the heels of Intel (though they beat Intel to a number of important industry milestones).

    I worked at AMD as an intern

    Pros

    The people I worked with were some of the nicest people around, and were always willing to help me. When looking for resources external to my team, I found everyone was also open to helping. The culture is very open, which I've heard is the opposite of many companies.

    Cons

    Obviously, AMD is not doing so well. This is the biggest con at the moment, since the situation tends to hold morale down a little.

    Advice to Management

    There are good people still at AMD - the market is difficult, but if AMD can pull out of the quicksand it'll be worth it.
