Good company to stay in Austin
North America Controller (Current Employee), Austin, TXOctober 20, 2014
Pros: work and life balance
Cons: lack of strategy
Lack of company culture and long term strategy. It is great company to set yourself in Austin. But I would not see it as a company to make a career or retire from

Great workplace but with a catch
Software Engineering Intern (Former Employee), Austin, TXOctober 16, 2014
Worked with Global Ops. IT team. Highly intelligent and friendly people. They also got arcade games, ping-pong tables, lot of other cool fun stuff. Unfortunately, the company is not doing so good right now. Team layoffs are pretty frequent. Sometimes, have to deal with problems totally alien to your job title.

Design Engineer I (Former Employee), Austin, TXJuly 27, 2014
Pros: some coworkers were sympathetic; an enemy of your enemy is a friend.
Cons: leadership/management was lacking, and job security was non-existant.
A typical day at AMD began with my understanding that it might be my last. After the experience I learned that if a company wants to get rid of you it will find a reason to do so, even if you're a high-performer; worrying is a useless emotion. There are strong managers there, but I only met a small number of them. The good ones have probably already – more... left. Most of my coworkers had families - much more to lose than I did - and this motivated them to work ridiculous hours, reacting to failures like wounded wild animals. What once was a thriving rainforest of growth and innovation is now a boneyard of vultures and hyenas, with the occasional bald-eagle passing through (who they laid off five people to bring in). The hardest part of the job was not quitting prematurely. The most enjoyable part of the job was reminiscing about the time before the company began its downward spiral. – less

Co-op Engineer (Current Employee), Austin, TXJune 30, 2014
Pros: gym and location
Cons: less cubical space
A typical week at work would be busy Mondays through Thursday with a team lunch on Friday to cheer you up. Work culture is awesome, dress code not very formal. The people are helpful and there is a good teaching culture and sharing of knowledge amongst peers and supervisors.

Distribution Account Manager (Former Employee), Richardson, TexasMay 1, 2014
Pros: travel and customer interface
Cons: constantly changing of company messaging and lack and clear overall strategy
Challenging but a very unstable working environment. Lack of consistent leadership. The technology I was responsible for selling was could not keep up with the competition- this was the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable part of of the job was my relationship with customers.

AMD, a great opportunity with great people
Member of Technical Staff (Former Employee), Austin, TXApril 23, 2014
I spent most of my time driving solutions that hopefully would make the final cut and be used to drive AMD's next generation product development. AMD is a great place to work with really talented people. They are a fun group and seeing some of the products in action is very exciting.
