Founded in 1969 by Jerry Sanders, AMD got its start producing logic chips, RAM chips and multipliers. It continued to expand in following years, acquiring numerous companies such as ATI Technologies and SeaMicro. AMD powers products from several of the world's top companies, including the Sony PlayStation 4, Microsoft Xbox One, Nintendo Wii U, Windows 10 laptops and the Macbook Pro.
If you're considering a career in technology, AMD offers excellent benefits, generous compensation and employee assistance programs. The company's encouraging atmosphere rewards innovation, collaboration and problem solving.
Employees praise AMD for its "great working environment," "technically challenging work" and "opportunities to broaden your career." But some note that "layoffs and multiple roadmap changes," as well as an "unstable market" have resulted in "low morale" at the company. – less
