    I worked at AMD full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Exposure to large enterprise software. Getting exposure to such a big operation shows you what is possible, and shows you how much it takes to run such a big company.

    Cons

    Poor office culture and camaraderie. People sit in cubes and do not collaborate much. This could have just been my team, but the old office style was not for me. Often it could feel like you are not making an impact since you are a small piece of a big machine.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on creating opportunities for collaboration and cross-department engagement. There were so many areas to work in, it would have been good to have an opportunity to explore other teams and the work that they are doing.
