Great people, so-so work environment

Product Development Engineer (Former Employee)
Austin, TX (US)

I worked at AMD as an intern for less than a year

Pros- Nice people. Most are willing to help each other out.
- Exciting industry, with fun events, announcements, and changes.
- Products are still competitive from a technology perspective.
- Austin campus is pretty.

Cons- Layoffs. Some people leaving.
- High-wall cubicles sort of prevent open communication.
- There is a sense that this company will never be what it once was. This creates a bit of apathy among the employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate cooperation among different teams. It would be nice to know that the whole company is heading in the same direction.
Build real excitement for upcoming products. Show off what they can do and why they are better than the competition's offerings.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Working environment is tumultuous with constant layoffs, and constant hiring of executive level staff.

Member of Technical Staff (Current Employee)
Austin, TX (US)

I have been working at AMD full-time for more than a year


Pros: The cafeteria is very nice. Cons: Morale is excessively low across all groups, with the exception of the VP level and up. Room for growth is confined to senior level management and… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
