Pros

The group I worked with was great. The work was usually interesting, and I enjoyed the disappearing "AMD" culture. Generally at the level where work actually gets done, there are a lot of great people.

Cons

They are willing to lay you off without any notice and no severance package, even violating the law. The new CEO, John Kispert, is as incompetent as he is heartless. The layoff stunt in parallel with executive pay increases was a PR nightmare that should never have happened, even just beyond the ethics. They have complete disregard for the welfare of employees. I would never recommend or work for this company again. After all, you could be next.

Advice to Management

Develop some basic human decency.

    Pros

    friendly and helpful co-workers, good work-life balance, amazing place to learn and grow, salary in par in the top companies in semiconductor industry,

    Cons

    legacy systems and practices, tough market-a shrinking NOR market,falling ASPs,bad financial decisions,slow decision making-(eg)projects getting cancelled just when the project is in the final stages citing poor customer demand for that product. These kind of project cancellations keep happening round the year-an absolute waste of resource and money,placing more emphasis on meeting the unrealistic deadline without ensuring the quality by coming up with a good systems of checks and balances

    Advice to Management

    get your priorities clear on which projects you want to work,

    Pros

    In terms of technology, it is at the forefront. So it is a great place to work with a bunch of highly skilled experts advancing and creating products we can be proud of. Colleagues are great too!

    Cons

    Management sucks. In this latest economic crisis, the management has shown little respect to its dedicated workforce. They laid off 30% of employees and gave themselves a 10% raise the very next day. Not the way to go, dudes!

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to respect their people.
