    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be proactive and make good decisions. They should stop the company going into this constant up and down cycles. They need to communicate better with the employees about the direction the company is going in and the roadmap.

    I worked at AMD

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Slackers and politically correct folks can get paid for doing nothing.

    Cons

    Many bad managers that are ready to throw their resources under the bus. No focus on training or career development. Your manager will try to supress your growth to save his/her job. Redundancies in processes across organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on hiring and retaining intelligent and driven folks. Lay off old timers who take fat salaries and are rigid to change.
