    I worked at Centaur Technology full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - I can't say this enough. The people at Centaur are fantastic.
    - Pay and benefits are pretty much unbeatable.

    Cons

    - The x86 chip industry is dying and there's little future in competing with Intel.
    - No mentoring or direction. If you're not the kind of person who can find problems on your own and fix them you will get little direction or help.
    - No bonuses.

    Pros

    Unrestrained work environment. Hire good people, give them the tools to do their job, and get out of their way. Awesome environment.

    Cons

    Works great if other groups are doing great and work together. If conflict does arise, no method for good resolution.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX

    I have been working at Centaur Technology full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The culture, the sense of ownership, the people, the freedom to create are unmatched. I can't imagine returning to the big-company mentality after my experience at Centaur.

    Cons

    The flat management structure doesn't leave much room for those who aspire to be managers. I don't, I'd rather be an individual contributor, so it's not a problem to me.
