I have been working at AMD as an intern for 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.

No opinion of CEO

    I worked at AMD full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Other prisoners on the sinking ship are generally nice and talented. You can do whatever you want to do, as long as it doesn't require a budget.

    Cons

    There are more VPs than engineers, it seems. Too many directors and higher. They even got rid of the engineer-assisting technicians, which is utterly stupid. They need to innovate by creating their own demand in the market. Layoffs accelerating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create internal autonomous start-ups and bet the future on them. Incentivize the staff of each startup with real revenue sharing plan that is rock solid. Make millionaires out of the teams and attract excellent talent when those happy people retire.
