    I worked at AMD full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent, empowering and merit-oriented culture. People with knowledge, enthusiasm and ability to contribute are highly valued and rewarded. A great place to learn and exercise your engineering skills.

    Cons

    Products and underlying technologies aren't competitive. Poor sales and weak profit margins cause underfunding of R&D projects, perpetual competitiveness challenges and continuous staff reductions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forget about the financial ratios for a while and invest to restore fundamental competitiveness. Change the game. Do something revolutionary that generates cash and reinvents AMD as a modern, relevant company. The company will be great again once it can afford to invest in its core technologies.
