Approves of CEO

I worked at AMD full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

They are continually releasing state of the art graphics products, which are very interesting to work on. Potential exposure to both hardware and software development.

Cons

Since AMD bought out ATI, the state of affairs in the Markham office has been slowly but steadily degrading. All senior management is based in the US, and there is zero loyalty or even respect for what the Canadian operation brings to the table.

Advice to Management

Stop outsourcing to cheaper geographies. Respect your employees instead of just your bottom line.

    Promotions rare, unplanned attempts do get things accomplished only results in more work.
