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

Pros

Most people at AMD are friendly, outgoing, sociable, dedicated, and talented. You can learn alot here. Like any company, some groups are more enjoyable to work in than others.

Cons

Relentless cost cutting makes it difficult to get people promoted and to fulfill the promise of delivering every product every business unit wants to sell. The culture does not value employees.

Advice to Management

Focus on doing a better job on fewer markets. Have the backbone to cut the roadmap so there is time to deliver quality.

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

    Pros

    Great people, some great managers, opportunity to work from home.

    Cons

    Lousy workspace in the corporate office. Some of the managers have horrific people skills, with one-dimensional ideas on what it takes to motivate. No significant pay raises in years. Too much work to do anything well.

    Advice to Management

    Look around - All of your best people have left, on their own accord, over the course of the last 12 months. Breakfast tacos once a quarter ain't helping.

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

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the people I worked with.

    Cons

    Forced to compete against co-workers in a ranking for pay increases...which fostered a competitive versus collaborative work culture. If a department has 10 good people they should all get good reviews and raises...instead the manager is forced to give a percentage of good, bad and neutral reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Try for a collaborative culture and see how much better your company would thrive.
