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

    Pros

    Two world class cultures, experts in CPUs and Graphics. Push hard, reach high, grab the stars. Learn a lot. Good pay and benefits. Good career potential. Flexible hours, covered parking. Ontario!

    Cons

    The mixed cultures didn't meld well. Austin didn't know how to support Toronto, and found it hard to get out of the way. Not enough people assigned to projects, lots of burnout, stress, and overwork. The superstars left when the train slowed down.

    Advice to Management

    Give better support to the Toronto office. Solutions shouldn't be handed down, they should grow from the bottom up.
