I worked at AMD as a contractor (More than 5 years)

Pros

They use the latest in technology tools and processes. They have very experienced engineers which allows you to get your work done in a timely manner

Cons

They are a big company and it sometimes takes longer for paperwork to get processed or issues to get addressed.

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

    Pros

    - flexible work environment
    - good work life balance
    - recent XBox One and PS4 raffles cheer up the environment a bit

    Cons

    - Rarely feel the excitement working here
    - Executives feel far and distant and irrelevant to our day to day work (maybe this is a Pro?)
    - We feel we are irrelevant to the executives the same way.
    - Salary raise and bonus? Rarely happen. Good luck! They feel like a lottery rather than something we work hard for and achieve.

    Advice to Management

    We gotta feel relevant and perhaps some excitement. Tiny gestures like cookie and tea occasionally can spice up the work place a little bit, but we aren't feeling any excitement at this moment.
