    Pros

    Get to work on some pretty cool stuff, depending on the role you are in.
    Usually it is easy to move between roles in the company and try out different stuff

    Cons

    Slave drivers, staffing is skewed, which means some roles are very hectic while others are sitting idle. Overall, you will end up working 50+ hours a week, atleast for a few months in a year.
    The hierarchy is shallow, which means you almost never get promoted. No fixed career path like other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs a big shakeup. Software has too many levels of hierarchy.
    Hw employees need clear career path for employees.

    Pros

    This company has brought a lot of formerly-high-end features to the PC. If it wasn't for it people would still be playing 3D games on workstations. 3D graphics is a very rewarding field to work in, probably more rewarding than anything else in IT.

    Cons

    The people in power are incompetent. It used to be that those in power came from other companies and were really good and took decisions which reliably bent over the competition. These people have long ago left and have been replaced with promoted people who have no idea what they're doing. These new people obsess, backstab, in fact, they do anything they can to hide their inability to think properly. The rank and file then has to live with the pressure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice.
