    I have been working at AMD full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company has many smart people, fosters a culture of meritocracy within the engineering teams, and supports development of employees.

    Cons

    It's always been tough to ride the endless waves of boom and bust cycles in the ever changing computer industry.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on innovation leadership, emphasizing more low power design, restoring the server business and investing in staffing for long term strength.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    work is interesting, nice benefits, great support from the law department, good facilities,

    Cons

    the down of this place is that I am at the HQ, where most people are mostly senior, and there were very few interns around my age, most people work then go home to their family, there are very few fun activities.

    Advice to Management

    please notice your interns more.
