    Good to see that hard work gets one in places.

    Glad to see that after being ranked as the 12th Worst CEO of 2015 now she is one of the best - a real life lesson.

    So what exactly does the "board of directors" do? I'm asking in terms of how much time she'd have to shove off AMD and put it more into Cisco now.

    She was named CEO at the end of 2014 so imo it was a little bit stupid to name her 12th worst CEO after only 1 year. You don't turn a company around in just 1 year.

    You're right - I think that she was named there for the sake of statistics but still she did not gave up: where was AMD five years ago and where is now - they should keep her as CEO as long as possible.

    And a good example of what a woman's intuition can do to the sausage-fest that is big tech.

    @Mda400 anyone could have done it but it just happened to be a woman.

    Not saying anyone couldn't, but there aren't many women that hold that high of a position in such a company in this industry.

    I'm a guy and I'm not afraid to state this.
