    I have been working at AMD full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working with AMD full-time for over a year now, and I like the working environment a lot.
    Lots of flexibility working from home, flexible working hours, above average benefits and nice teammates.

    Cons

    There is a bit lack of documentation and thus you learn by asking existing team members.
    The nice thing is that they are very responsive and willing to help anytime.
    I wish if there were more team outings more than the annual team dinner and more of social activities.

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

    Pros

    location was convenient, experience gained working in different departments

    Cons

    hard to move up, or even lateral. management intentionally not aware of low level employee issues. pay is unfair, made way less than male collegues, including stocks which were never offered to me despite performance reviews. spent 8 years there struggling to grow without management support to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your teams, and even below that. If people are leaving in waves, don't ignore it, something should be improved
