I worked at AMD full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Smart people, interesting projects, cutting edge products. There is a lot of opportunity to work on the next big thing, You have the freedom to do out of the box thinking. The managers I've worked with have been very supportive.

Cons

The environment is very unstable at this time rumors of more layoffs q1 2013. Unsure of the company direction, which leads to former product areas being cut.

Advice to Management

Working there at this point in time is working under the axe. Morale is low.

    I have been working at AMD full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of great people that work there. If you work hard, you will learn a lot and add a lot of value to your team.

    Cons

    They are terrible at properly staffing resources for projects. Schedules are consistently broken. They cannot seem to settle on an organizational structure. There are too many levels of management.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the things that matter to employees, like compensation and the unfortunate promotion policy. Stop the churn and indecisiveness.

    I have been working at AMD full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nice campus, flexible work hours, some good people left but maybe not for much longer

    Cons

    Company doesn't make money, doesn't pay bonuses and when they do they are small. No clear corporate direction.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of what quality talent has been brave enough to stick with this company. Set clear direction and be open and honest.
