I worked at AMD full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Intelligent, hardworking employees. Work-life balance. You'll get to meet great people who want to do their jobs well, and you may even learn a lot from them.

Cons

Benefits and perks are minimal. Leadership is void at best. Too many fiefdoms, management don't listen to employees. Career growth is very limited at best, and you constantly have this nagging feeling that you'll get laid off at any time.

Advice to Management

Not sure if management is doing what's best for themselves or for the company.

Other Employee Reviews for AMD

  1. "Interesting work, but company in constant state of transition"

    Pros

    The opportunity to work on advanced technology is a plus. Pay is reasonable considering the company's financial challenges over the past few year.

    Cons

    Company has been going through a lot of necessary changes as it adapts to the eroding PC market. This causes a lot of projects to get canceled (and work to get wasted). It can be hard to get things done due to tight budgets. Base pay has remained reasonable, but bonuses have been somewhat limited for the past several years due to the company trying to survive.


  2. "Good, but illegal?"

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at AMD as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, laid back, fun, interesting environment. A lot of knowledgeable employees that for the most part are willing to help you adjust to their environment.

    Cons

    Hourly workers are asked to work overtime, but not paid for that work. The co-op students are treated like they are completely ignorant, and sometimes ignored completely.

    Advice to Management

    Change Co-op students to salary if you aren't going to pay them the hours they work.
