Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at AMD full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

There were some very smart people to work with and learn from when i started at AMD

Cons

All the good people left and we started hiring big names who came there because they did something in their previous job. Gave them large salaries, big positions and took all motivation away from them to work and prove something anymore ..

Advice to Management

Stop hiring names and look for people who are motivated to build something instead of hiring people who want to tell people what to build ..
