    I worked at AMD full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There were good people around and I enjoyed the challenge of the work I had.

    Cons

    There were people who were promoted ahead of time and who could have benefited from closer supervision from above but did not get it....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication with people down the food chain would help. First, it allows issues to be picked up sooner and could help everyone be on same page. Then, it might help a different perspective be transmitted up the chain, which is something that seems to be missing at AMD (while I was there).

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at AMD.

    Interview Details

    Applied through the school internship program job board. Had an on-campus interview with an engineer. Talked about my past experiences, then went onto questions regarding digital logic and Verilog programming. Then I was invited for an on-site visit to meet the team and check out the work environment. Received an offer a few weeks later.
