    Pros

    It is amazing to be involved with technologies that are leading the industry and having a customer base that reads like a who's who of the best technology companies around the globe. The working environment is very positive due to people's genuine enthusiasm for the work we are doing and the fact that all are confident about the company's near and long term potential.

    Cons

    The learning curves can be quite steep. Many employees have been here for a very long time, so new people can find it harder to integrate and be included.

    Advice to Management

    Fantastic dedication among senior leaders and staff, try to build better communication channels.


  3. Very engineering driven, working on some of the most exciting products in the world with a great culture.

    I have been working at Imagination Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture is an open one where you're encouraged to work closely with any engineer in any department in any team at any time, to get the right expertise and input into your work so you can do a great job. Nobody is off limits, including the CEO and architecture team, and we work on some of the most exciting and popular consumer electronics on the market, so the satisfaction in seeing people enjoy your work is everywhere.

    Cons

    There are some growing pains as the company adds staff quickly, and the existing buildings are becoming cramped.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the engineers lower in the company know that you appreciate their hard work.

    I have been working at Imagination Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Surrounded by some fantastic engineers. Develop leading technology across multiple fields so numerous interesting projects to be part of / learn about. Growing very rapidly so opportunities for career development as teams have to scale. Very exciting times as the company becomes more well known and talked about. Invests heavily in its employees so its not a company people want to leave.

    Cons

    As above, the company is growing very rapidly and its difficult to get the people the company needs. This affects employees but is also not necessarily something the company do a great deal about. Office space is a little problematic at times, but this will be resolved as numerous new buildings are under construction.

    Advice to Management

    The company is doing a lot of interesting things, make sure that all employees are aware of them since, like the company meeting, they inspire and motivate people a lot.

    Pros

    Small, flexible and high Tech! Our industry, background screening is very young which means it is growing very fast! People are laid back but work really hard!

    Cons

    Need one more bath room to share. I't stays busy all the time! Owner is brillant, but he takes on too much of the adminstration side of the business. He has no life which is sad.

    Pros

    Your role changes to fit you, not the other way around (within reason). If you use your initiative, you're applauded. The creative freedom makes the place a joy to work in.

    Cons

    The salary isn't as good as their competitors.

    Advice to Management

    More frequent meetings with new employees to help them express any concerns. Whilst the option is there, having it organised for you prompts you to think about what could be improved earlier.
