    I worked at AMD full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There were good people around and I enjoyed the challenge of the work I had.

Then, it might help a different perspective be transmitted up the chain, which is something that seems to be missing at AMD (while I was there).

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) made some advances in its battle against Intel but hasn't capitalized on those gains. AMD ranks #2 in PC and server microprocessors, far behind its archrival. Though Intel commands the world processor market, AMD has at times eroded that market share, thanks to the popularity of its Athlon and Opteron processor families. The company also makes embedded processors and other chips for communications, graphics, storage, networking, and other applications. Hewlett-Packard is its largest customer.
