I have been working at AMD full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Some great people to work with and some really bright engineering talent.

Cons

The company is falling apart -- to many VPs and multiple rounds of layoffs. All cost cutting is through people. The instability is unsettling for all and having to do more with less is really stretching people.

Advice to Management

Pay attention you're losing great engineers -- needless VP and layers are killing decision-making.

    I worked at AMD as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Nice people. Most are willing to help each other out.
    - Exciting industry, with fun events, announcements, and changes.
    - Products are still competitive from a technology perspective.
    - Austin campus is pretty.

    Cons

    - Layoffs. Some people leaving.
    - High-wall cubicles sort of prevent open communication.
    - There is a sense that this company will never be what it once was. This creates a bit of apathy among the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Create cooperation among different teams. It would be nice to know that the whole company is heading in the same direction.
    Build real excitement for upcoming products. Show off what they can do and why they are better than the competition's offerings.
