Reviews about Pay & Benefits for Engineer in AMD

Great Internship

Good pay, flexible hours, great team. A lot to learn but overall a worth-while experience. Resources and mentors are plentiful, tools and equipment are just right.

Good company with not-so-good middle managers

AMD in itself is a good company with great products and a great CEO. However, my experience as an engineer was not so great. The main problem lies with middle management. Unfortunately, my manager had no regard or interest in my professional growth -- he wouldn't provide any meaningful feedback on my performance even after multiple requests, no one-on-one meetings, kept me working on the same things for 6 years with no scope of learning anything new even though I kept on requesting, minimal raise and absolutely no recognition. Favoritism and politics are rampant. People are generally nice on the surface, but cold. I felt like a cog in the wheel and ultimately ended up leaving the company (or more correctly, my manager).On the plus side, benefits are good and the pay is okay. The company has been doing well and is under capable leadership. The work environment isn't bad in general and quite often HR would host fun events and stuff. While work-life balance isn't that great, I have had far worse experiences. However, AMD works on cutting edge technology and products, so while there is potentially opportunity to learn new and interesting things, almost all tasks are very partitioned and made limited in their scope. I guess that's kind of the nature of a big and mature company, but chances are that one will probably end up getting assigned a small part of the design and not learn a whole lot. Overall, it's not a bad place to work at, as long as you are lucky enough to get a manager who actually cares.

Talented people, terrible direction

In the days when we beat the competitor (very few), everything is great. Every other day you're waiting for the next layoff.

Worst corporate leadership in the industry
