    This is the first place I've worked since graduating from school, so I can only compare to what others have told me. Cirrus provides an excellent benefits and compensation package including health insurance, dental, vision, wellness programs including an on-site fitness center complete with group classes, and an available discounted rate for on-site chair massages during the day. They even offer discounted guitar classes during the lunch hour! Furthermore, there are company outings that really bring the company together such as weekly free happy hours, monthly concerts and birthday celebrations, and the quarterly all-hands meeting that is surprisingly entertaining and enjoyable. The employees are excellent and possess an ownership of their work while projecting an uncanny nonchalance.


    The name "Cirrus Logic" isn't widely recognized by the general public, so people tend to confuse my company with one of many others.

    Analog Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Cirrus Logic (Austin, TX) in July 2015.


    First I had a phone screen, then they invited me for an interview, and they asked for references. My references had to fill in a questionnaire about me, before the on site interview. The on site interview was postponed once without explanation. Cirrus had their travel agency arrange the flights between the SF Bay Area where I live and Austin. Although there are direct flights between Silicon Valley and Austin the travel agency didn't book direct flights (and they also don't do that for Cirrus employees I've heard.) The travel agency also booked the hotel and a rental car. Cirrus gave me a map which indicated 3 places where I could park the car, the parking garage for visitors (which was already full at 8.15AM) and two parking lots, of which one turned out not to have places for Cirrus Logic employees/visitors anymore. I first had a talk with their recruiter in a meeting room and after that I was escorted from interviewer to interviewer. I came back to that meeting room a few times. It was a surprise to some of the interviewers that they had to do an interview, I even heard one interviewer exclaim 'O no'. I was asked to bring extra resumes, that turned out to be necessary. Most interviewers had my resume on screen but in one case the interviewer was not able to pull my resume up so I had to give him one of the resumes I brought.
