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

    Pros

    ADM is a engineer-centric work place, you work with smart coworkers who knows their stuff. Managers are well trained and they promote from within which is great for people who start from the bottom.

    Cons

    Stock price still down in the dumps. Lack of strong vision and leadership and product offerings always one step behind Intel. Need a game changer to beat Intel in their game. We need yout to come back, AMD!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your customers and employees!

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

    Pros

    It used to be an innovative and fun place to work.

    Cons

    Downfall of the company is primarily caused due to poor decisions by upper management. Unfortunately they are immune from layoffs and still continue to earn fat paychecks.

    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.

    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).
