Senior AMD Fellow with the opportunity to lead complex projects
CTO and Co-Founder (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAAugust 14, 2018
AMD was probably the most fulfilling from a career advancement perspective. I was the main technical person supporting cross functional teams representing the company at major joint ventures with external partners.

As a result My final assignment at AMD was the to establish a Technical Design Center in Dresden, I had the complete responsibility for setting it up, hiring engineers from Eastern Germany initially, then expanded into Europe. I sent Expats to help and coach the engineering teams to handle AMD's design systems. I also had the responsibility of defining the projects which were executed on at the design center.
Pros
Excellent Company to work for
Cons
Not any!

Great Place to work!
Senior Research Talent Consultant (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXAugust 9, 2018
AMD is filled with remarkable easy going professionals, has flexible hours and remote options, and embraces work/life balance. If you are looking for a place to land where you can make an impact, the "scrappy" Machine Learning, Ai and other groups are amazing!

Was better under the control of its founder
MARKET DEVELOPMENT MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXAugust 3, 2018
The company had a purpose while under the control of Jerry Sanders. The company worked as a team and grew. Under later management the commitment to the employees faded.

I would've stayed with this company forever. But lets be honest the semi conducting industry is always changing. With that said, lay-offs are inevitable.

Great Flexibility
Software Engineer for D3D QE (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLJune 18, 2018
Overall a great company. Coworkers are great, but there are some bad apples that have negative outlooks and make it hard to work with. Make sure the employees you work with are legit and aren't egocentric.

Great in 1997, not so great by 2014
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXMay 16, 2018
Great place to work and learn and grow in 1997. By 2014 too many bad executive changes and decisions were bringing the company down and senior leadership were being promoted into positions they should not have been. Toxic management in the end. I am happy to see that the current CEO has really turned things around and I hopeful for the future of AMD!
