What do you like about working at Advanced Micro Devices?

"Young culture, great people, smart people to work with, can be high pressure sometimes."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"If you're not coming into business or design, don't come here. You want perks and fast promotions. Go to design or another company. If you work for a company that doesn't make money, you won't see any money. And if you work for a department that doesn't drive future growth, you won't see any money."

What don't you like about working at Advanced Micro Devices?

"Poor execution, below-industry raises, bad hires, heavy management disconnect (favor people playing the politics game who are not really contributing). Want to move up? Brown nose and concur to what others say in meeting. Just act like you know what's going on when you really don't. For management, when times are bad, just cut your engineers because you're obviously not going to cut yourself."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Platform engineers do not get any significant rewards and pay bump. This is causing the high attrition rate. Every successful launch, the recognition goes toward design team. Recognize talented engineers and reward them, just like MSFT and GOOG who retains high talent. Execution is also very poor, with most of the decisions made by upper management. When upper management makes mistake, more engineers are cut as a result, thus leaving a top-heavy company. Lower level talented engineers are leaving."
