Pros

Good culture. People at AMD know how to treat each other. Not a commentary on whether or not people there are competent or incompetent. But there is truly a respect for people and a willingness to be a team player. Benefits and compensation are good and I think management generally does care about its employees.

Cons

Not enough profitability = not enough profit sharing. Tough times abound. It would be good to have some extended periods of solid financial performance and not have everyone always worried about what kind of cutbacks they are going to have to make.

Advice to Management

I think you're headed in the right direction, taking the right actions.

    Pros

    AMD allows for a very flexible working environment and understands what it means to have a work/life balance. AMD appears to be concerned about the employee and does provide good benefits and health perks for the employee and family.

    Cons

    AMD struggles with executing on a corporate strategy. AMD takes too long to reach an understanding of where it wants to go, how to get there and lacks the rigor and discipline to make it happen. Additionally, the engineering groups as well as the sales and marketing teams are siloed and communication is arduous.

    Advice to Management

    Start running the business units like a business instead of a technology company. More attention needs to be paid to each of the components of the business. A fundamental lack of appreciation and understanding of manufacturing, an undisciplined product engineering staff and a sub-optimal sales and marketing strategy need to be addressed.


  2. "AMD company culture gone bad"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    AMD has a very good company culture of respect for people which is at the cornerstone of how they treat their employees. Employees are expected to speak up, challenge decisions, and have a voice in how the company is going. AMD is still a small enough company that everyone knows each other, builds strong relationships and generally likes the people that they work with.

    Cons

    AMD has brought in a lot of outside executives in the past few years who were raised on different company cultures which is changing the company. The large number of IBM executives hired in the past 2-3years has lead to a very uneasy feeling in the company, distrust of the different sites and concern among the employees. The lack of information on what the company is doing with "Asset Smart" is only leading to the different locations jockeying for position, withholding information, and subsequantly very low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest about what is going on, stop hiding information and trying to pit different sites against each other.
