I worked at AMD as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

- Nice people. Most are willing to help each other out.
- Exciting industry, with fun events, announcements, and changes.
- Products are still competitive from a technology perspective.
- Austin campus is pretty.

Cons

- Layoffs. Some people leaving.
- High-wall cubicles sort of prevent open communication.
- There is a sense that this company will never be what it once was. This creates a bit of apathy among the employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create cooperation among different teams. It would be nice to know that the whole company is heading in the same direction.
Build real excitement for upcoming products. Show off what they can do and why they are better than the competition's offerings.

    Working environment is tumultuous with constant layoffs, and constant hiring of executive level staff.

    Pros

    The cafeteria is very nice.

    Cons

    Morale is excessively low across all groups, with the exception of the VP level and up.
    Room for growth is confined to senior level management and up.
    While promotions do occur within the company, mainly due to the constant layoffs, this also forces people to take on anywhere from 2-3 other individual's jobs, ultimately creating an environment set up for failure.
