Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

-friendly and knowledgeable people -you feel your work effect the company, even though it is a large company -you gain a tremendous amount of knowledge -laid back atmosphere between projects -a computer enthusiasts dream workplace -a lot of expensive high-tech equipment you would otherwise never see or use

Cons

-can be difficult to obtain full-time status in some teams (fairly rare problem though) -like most companies, resources are stretched thin, mainly too much work over too few people, or unrealistic timelines -some teams have a constant cycling of contractors and some knowledge is inevitably lost and/or time is spent getting new hires up to speed (limited to only some teams too) -experience widely depends on department*

Advice to Management

-be careful how many projects you try to assign teams to work on simultaneously, employees have tended to get burnt out when this happens
