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

Pros

Great work environment, excellent facilities, I get recognition for good work and performance, good work / life balance, good work culture, well respected company (at least once was).

Cons

IT infrastructure not maintained, poor job stability, company growth is minimal if not absent, salary growth is slow, bonuses are not great, senior management makes poor decisions, lots of layoffs affecting critical resources.

Advice to Management

Please stop getting rid of critical employees! We are stretched thin as is, and you continue getting rid of all of the people that matter, we will never catch up to the competition.

    I worked at AMD full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There were some very smart people to work with and learn from when i started at AMD

    Cons

    All the good people left and we started hiring big names who came there because they did something in their previous job. Gave them large salaries, big positions and took all motivation away from them to work and prove something anymore ..

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring names and look for people who are motivated to build something instead of hiring people who want to tell people what to build ..


  2. "Finally turning around"
