    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The company culture is very relaxed and the people I met there were great. They made me comfortable and allowed me sufficient time to ease into my first real internship.

    Cons

    Worked around the time of the massive layoffs, so my group fell apart and that limited my support system.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little bit more involved and offer more feedback; I didn't receive much feedback during my stay.


  2. Helpful (1)

    "A once enjoyable place to work that has since degenerated into kingdom building and political backstabbing."

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Competitive salaries for the industry
    Excellent new campus in southwest Austin
    Leading edge technology and design methodologies
    Fast paced work environment

    Cons

    Few prospects for career growth. None beyond director level.
    Nonexistent merit raises in several years but apparently plenty of money to hire new VP's
    Corporate politics play a role in almost every decision.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that the real problems with AMD are organizational and have nothing to do with individual contributor execution. AMD's internal structure is disfunctional and continues to limit it's potential.
