    I have been working at Imagination Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Friendly environment with people really passionate about their work. Plenty of variety day-to-day and you never feel without a challenge. Great transport links, easily commutable from London.

    Cons

    Salary increases are sometimes unclear and perhaps a little less than competitive with similar jobs. Career progression can also be somewhat of an unknown.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a great job, keep it up.

    I worked at Imagination Technologies as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly and supported atmosphere, social events and as treat Wednesdays, and the food at the canteen was surprisingly good as well.

    Cons

    The pay is fairly poor for their competitors and they do expect you to work hard, but that is reasonable.

    I have been working at Imagination Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The open environment amongst engineers together with the breadth of activity provides a technically exciting atmosphere. Technical discussions are easy and information can be sought from other parts of the company with no barrier. Any active interest is never discouraged.
    There are many able and skilled engineers.
    The new building is excellent, furnished to a high standard. The canteen provides good quality food with a lot of variety.

    Cons

    The open culture between engineers is adapting to change due to expansion. The company has expanded rapidly and some of the infrastructure is still adapting. The expansion makes career paths somewhat unclear however it does provide opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the company expands, be sure not to lose sight of the many great engineers working for you.
