I have been working at AMD as an intern (More than a year)
Great team with great people who are willing to help each other. Company will be expanding with opening of new office, so lots of new opportunities. I was part of an understaffed team with a workload comparable to software companies. Overall, great company to work at.
Most employees are older, I had to put in a lot of effort to create a social circle for interns.
Advice to Management
More social events. Something very easy HR could do is to email all interns every term so they can get to know each other.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at AMD (Sunnyvale, CA (US)) in November-2011.
One telephone interview followed by a day-long onsite interview. The interviewers were well prepared, and each one focused on a specific skill. Overall, people were very pleasant but tough. Although, I was put in some other team rather than the one I interviewed with, the job responsibilities were very similar, and the management was willing to listen to my interests.
