    Managers are clueless and will throw you under the bus to make themselves look better. Office is now overcrowded as they sold off most of their office space when they were restructuring.

    I worked at AMD full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance.
    Competitive compensation and benefits.
    Available perks such as discounts on AMD products.
    Most colleagues are nice.

    Cons

    Leadership has propensity to over promise and under deliver.
    Inter-team conflicts are common.
    Mid-level management has a tendency to treat employees as human resources by assigning jobs based on who's free to do it rather than who's good at doing it.
    Mid-level management has low attachment and interest in the products the company produces.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that your employees have a realistic view of the company's products and their position in the market place.
    Invest in recruiting true experts to fulfill rolls that require them instead of forcing employees with mismatching skill sets into those positions.
    Make interest in your products a higher priority in your recruiting.
