    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at AMD full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the most talented co-workers, good collaboration.
    Great manager, flexible hours.
    Interesting work.

    Cons

    Slow advancement rate.
    Strategy/planning that puts lots of pressure and unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to Management

    I'd rather we have less accomplishments but excel at what we commit to, rather than try to please everybody at the same time and end up not doing so well for everyone. Strategy, product, and resource planning needs to adapt to industry changes much quicker.

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

    Pros

    AMD has some of the smartest engineers around. Also some of the best silicon designers.

    Cons

    Unfortunately management is rotten from top down. A lot of misplaced priorities and lack of consultation with the people that actually understand the underlying technology. The company also has a culture of rewarding people who cause problems and overlooking those that actually solves them

    Advice to Management
