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

Pros

Awful politics and not so great executive leadership.

Advice to Management

Declare war on politics and give departments incentives to work together.

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

    Pros

    Nice environment as far as buildings/location at the Austin campus. Most people were great, worked hard and very loyal

    Cons

    NEVER see this company as an advancement in a career and NEVER count on it for long term stability. Your best off looking for other work if you are still employed and leave on your own terms because the next layoff is ticking closer.

    Advice to Management

    They would not take it even if given. Rory Read needs to go for starters!

    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.
