    I have been working at Imagination Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Global player working with major companies in the mobile SoC sector Lots of technically interesting positions in different areas (drivers, graphics/video hardware, wireless hardware, CPU)

    Cons

    It seems the general strategy is not focused on retaining experienced staff but rather a large reliance on cheaper graduates.

    Advice to Management

    Ensuring that experienced employees are being kept happy enough that they do not switch to other companies quite as often would be a good idea

    Pros

    Interesting work, some freedom to make decisions Informal Challenging

    Cons

    No strict objectives from upper management makes difficult to choose what to do to progress on your career. Pay is low compared to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Push the executives for higher pays to keep talents in, the company loses good people because of pay, and also makes managers job hard because of quick worker turnaround.
