    A lot depends on the group you work with...

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsGreat colleagues, fair compensation. Working in certain groups can be very technically rewarding.

    interesting technology and increasing independence

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSmart, irreverent co-workers. Great location. Attention to employee satisfaction such as weekly happy hour, free snacks AND free exercise classes to make up for it, not too many meetings, sense of purpose and progress

    Consproblem of being overly dependent on one customer may be on the way to a solution with the acquisition of Wolfson

    unprofessional and untrustworthy company to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThey provide competitive salary and benefits. provide learning on your own experience. if you like happy hour and downtown, they have it.

    Consunprofessional with handling work situations. lack of transparency in leadership. lack of team spirit and each one is for his/her own when issues arise. All play the blame game, everyone want credit for work you've done and blame you for their shortcomings. dishonesty spreads and present cross the board within the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to be close to the working teams and listen to them. It is good to have a trusted management team, but you need to challenge them some times.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Should be so much more

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsGreat people. Most have enough experience to be great sources of information
    Challenging work that results in real-world products
    Great perks (ie ACL and SXSW tickets. Nice annual company picnic)
    Re-imbursement for public transportation
    Decent benefits
    Downtown Austin location

    ConsSerious schedule pressures result in an over-worked staff.
    No time for vacation. Not paid for PTO that is accrued over maximum.
    Some managers are completely unprofessional and childish.
    Upper management plays favorites. If you weren't around during the lean-times, you're not worthy of promotion. We can't all be drinking buddies.
    Review process is unfair. If you are going to be so selective about hiring the best engineers, asserting 30% "needs improvement" is just plain silly and non-motivational.
    Minuscule raises

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider a management house-cleaning. Get some real team-players in there.
    Everyone should follow the design methodology. Don't allow some managers to act in a vacuum.
    Re-vamp salary caps for this decade and consider reducing " 30% needs improvement" to a case-by-case basis.

    Is it too much to ask for a simple Thank-you?

    Design Engineer (Former Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsThe pay is great. The perks are nice for single people who want to live in the downtown area. Good rewards from upper management and lots of fringe benefits. Easy access downtown to a lot of food joints. Happy hour on Fridays.

    ConsFor family guys who don't drink, the perks aren't quite there. Managers need to be trained better. It was literally years between when a manager has said "Good Job", or "Thank-you" even after putting in 16 hour days for a few weeks to meet a deadline. There is a lack of positive feedback. Support from management just isn't there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management does a good job of trying to convey a sense of caring about the employee. Cirrus needs to get that level of reward and feedback down at the first level managers. There is too much stress on the first level managers to turn in projects too quickly especially for the one big customer. Branch out, find more customers, and ease the stress of having just one customer that could break the company completely with a decision to go another way. Stop concentrating on the "downtown" feel for the single guy and think about the guys with families.
