    I worked at AMD as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I was hired as an intern and was immediately placed on a team that helped me transition into the working world. As soon as I grew accustomed to the various software interfaces, I was able to meaningfully contribute to the projects my team was working on. Positions often lead to decent upward and lateral mobility if searching for a different position within the company. Overall the people I worked with were very warm and I had a great time working here.

    Cons

    The cubicle structure of the office lent itself to more of a secluded atmosphere. Otherwise had no problems over the length of my internship term (~3 months).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At times it seemed that teams in different groups were disconnected in working towards a product. While the hierarchical team structure worked well for working within the same department (i.e. SLT Testing etc.), it was sometimes difficult to find the right person when a problem arose in a part of the product from a different team's contribution.

    Pros

    The people. The culture. There is always work to do and room to be innovative. This includes both incredible product churns and opportunities to do research on future products.

    Cons

    Too ambitious for the staffing. Reform for this has already happened. However, this has resulted in some uncertainty among the staff about the companies long term plans.
