Sad to see what ATI has become
SMTS DV Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Markham, ONAugust 14, 2013
ATI used to be a great place to work. After AMD carved it up and took over the desktop graphics, it seems a lot of the spirit of ATI disappeared.
The work was challenging, and I wish I had stayed long enough to get a real feel for it, and for how management has changed since the AMD takeover, but I was around at a time when they were changing CEOs practically every other week. When the new guy came in, they famously laid off several thousand people, and I got culled before I really had a chance to dig in.
The rumor is that they go through hiring binges and then soon after go through purges. Many of the senior staff are very frustrated with the situation.
Pros
senior ati people still there - some great people
Cons
the company seems rudderless

Good company, but compensation isn't up to par.
Senior Analog/Mixed Signal Engineer (Former Employee) –  Markham, ONOctober 25, 2012
Good company, but compensation isn't up to par.

Road map changes too frequently, leaving employees often working on projects that never make it to market.
