I worked at AMD full-time

Pros

Good technology, especially graphics. Definitely the current APU (single-SoC CPU + GPU + support) leader. Dynamic environment, plenty of opportunity.

Cons

Too much churn in project definition and priorities. Need better alignment of cross-organization priorities. Some groups become way over-stretched.

Advice to Management

Share more than near-term/mid-term strategies/directions with employees; only knowing the next step does not build confidence and vision of where AMD is going. Improve resource balancing - understand the level of demand on each group and adjust.

    I have been working at AMD full-time

    Pros

    You get to work with some of the most talent engineers in the business and can contribute at a very high level on most projects (if you can navigate the constant changes pushed down from the top)

    Cons

    Constant churn on all fronts, it's like the a big tumbler for bingo balls and every once in a while a product pops out of the randomness. Teams are in silos and there is a significant lack of cross functional communication and alignment of goals/strategies.

    Advice to Management

    Create: 1. a stable road map to execute to 2. a vision for where we need to be in 2 and 5 years 3. challenge the leadership to achieve that vision across the company (not in each silo). Stop the BS cheer leading to only do a 180 on strategy a few weeks later.

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

    Pros

    I worked in the Austin office, and like most company offices in this city, it's an overall decent vibe and good office environment.

    Cons

    Working in the global lead sourcing department was a nightmare. The people who run the department were not only incompetent, they were all around horrible people from a personal perspective.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your procurement folks. No one likes them and the make those around them miserable.
