    Pros

    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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    I don't see any pros compared to other companies.

    Cons

    There is no future for you and your career. There is no well defined criteria that how they promote your level. You stuck at your level for infinite time till you leave. Salaries are not competitive. Other companies in Austin area pay more for the same job . Lots of stress and work. Job security is almost zero. Management is not professional and they lack the required technical skills.

    +Genuine concern with having a great work environment
    +High standards

    Cons

    +Long work hours expected, especially during tapeouts
    +Can be clicky in certain groups

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the current path, things are pretty good overall from an employee perspective.

    I understand things will change as Cirrus transitions from a smaller to larger corporation in terms of revenue and headcount, but be honest and transparent and people will understand.

    Pros

    Some really great people scattered throughout the company. Good environment if you're into the downtown thing. Most of the management seems approachable.

    Cons

    Politics are atrocious. Complete lack of common sense. Always on eggshells. Rarely taken seriously. Select few treated with favoritism, the rest are constantly under undue scrutiny. Lots of questionable ethics and back-stabbing.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with what is going on in the team. Don't have knee-jerk reactions to everything. Especially if it is based on the tattling of your favorite henchmen, I mean team members. Look at all the facts and prioritize based on needs not wants. Nobody should have to constantly wonder if there job is in jeopardy based on what is going on in someone elses private life. Take your employees seriously.
