Current Intern - Co-Op Engineer in Austin, TX

I have been working at AMD as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Great people, laid back, fun, interesting environment. A lot of knowledgeable employees that for the most part are willing to help you adjust to their environment.

Cons

Hourly workers are asked to work overtime, but not paid for that work. The co-op students are treated like they are completely ignorant, and sometimes ignored completely.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change Co-op students to salary if you aren't going to pay them the hours they work.

    Former Employee - Member of Technical Staff in Boxborough, MA

    I worked at AMD full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    AMD is full of great people to work with. They're smart, dedicated, and fun. The technology that they produce is top-notch. They have a lot of good safeguards in place so that engineering mistakes don't get through into products.

    Cons

    AMD always seems to be struggling to gain recognition from consumers and respect from PC manufacturers. This is reflected in their low market share. Gamers love the Radeon graphics cards, but that's a relatively small market. With PC sales declining, it's a race to see whether AMD can make up the sales by breaking into new markets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Getting design flows to work reliably was always a challenge. The CAD group is understaffed and/or focusing on the wrong things.
