I have been working at AMD full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

AMD is one of the oldest companies in Silicon Valley. There are many old engineers who are really diligent and respectable.
Company is still driving some innovative projects. I mean new direction not only some new families of products.
Flexible work schedule. Friendly coworkers.

Cons

Too much layoff which force lots of smart people leave. This is definitely a PAIN for a company in Silicon Valley. Especially, most directly join your competitors.

Advice to Management

Don't know if company still values loyalty. If so, how could you let your smart engineers leave? Engineers should have a big SAY for the products not marketing guys.
