I have been working at AMD full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Work with high-caliber engineering peers. Despite attrition, company still has an amazing reservoir of talent and skill sets. Makes it a great place to learn, and have a lot of fun.

Plenty of opportunities to innovate and influence the design and flow. Access to technical decisions is not hidden. Even junior employees can make impactful contributions and influence technical directions if they have the wherewithal to make the ROI case.

Cons

Company has been financially challenged for years. Many benefits have already been jettisoned, and remaining ones are getting sliced.

Advice to Management

Don't sugar coat. When you reduce cubicle sizes or change vacation policy to save money, don't tell us it was based on employee feedback, just tell us it's to save money.
