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.

    take more chances
