Former Employee - Post Silicon Hardware Validation in Markham, ON (Canada)

I worked at AMD as an intern (more than an year)

Pros

-friendly and knowledgeable people
-you feel your work effect the company, even though it is a large company
-you gain a tremendous amount of knowledge
-laid back atmosphere between projects
-a computer enthusiasts dream workplace
-a lot of expensive high-tech equipment you would otherwise never see or use

Cons

-can be difficult to obtain full-time status in some teams (fairly rare problem though)
-like most companies, resources are stretched thin, mainly too much work over too few people, or unrealistic timelines
-some teams have a constant cycling of contractors and some knowledge is inevitably lost and/or time is spent getting new hires up to speed (limited to only some teams too)

-experience widely depends on department*

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-be careful how many projects you try to assign teams to work on simultaneously, employees have tended to get burnt out when this happens

    I worked at AMD full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The hours are flexible and the atmosphere was very relaxed in my group. dress code was relaxed. work was challenging and always changing to keep you interested.

    Cons

    seemed to be less visibility into future projects in the last 2 years. A lot of people started losing their confidence in the management team. Way too managers, VP's and people not doing real work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to find a way to re-connect with those left after the latest round of layoffs. Your employees should be the most important thing to you and you should do everything in your power to retain the top talent. and their trust.
