Pros

AMD is an excellent place to work for those seeking to be involved with a company on the cutting edge. As a result of being on the forefront of technology, the work environment fosters innovation.

Cons

I really have to nitpick to find anything bad to say about AMD. The only real downside I'd say, is that as a hardware company, software (software developers etc) is generally the second class citizen in past years. Recently though, that has been changing.

Advice to Management

Management has been doing a good job getting the employees engaged and soliciting feedback, and should continue down that course.

    tough competition from Intel and NVidia

    Advice to Management

    There is the impression plans are not fully baked and major pieces/dependencies are overlooked in the big picture.

    Find a better way to identify valuable contributors and reward them; promote clear ovnership as a means of motivating people

    Pros

    AMD has a very good work environment. People are allowed to express their ideas and opinions freely. The pressure is limited, and people are promoted based on actual work, not who kisses ass the best

    Cons

    Management at times is disconnected from their employees. The hands on manager is hard to come by. Very few personal relations exist between management and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Become more involved, learn how to actually motivate and keep good moral. Read one of Jim Collin's books, this should be a requirement for managers, especially needed at AMD
