    I have been working at Cirrus Logic full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good growth, very friendly co-workers, exciting products, and importance of on-job training opportunities. Flexible time-off policies and fun environment at work with regular gatherings (Happy Hour every Friday), concerts and celebration at the company.

    Cons

    Very often the job demands a lot more time than other average jobs. There are some biased views on the importance of the employees even after such hard work due to the politics at some level of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognition of highly engaged employees' work that makes the most impact to the company.

    Smart, 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

    Cons

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

    I worked at Cirrus Logic full-time for less than a year

    Pros

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

    Cons

    unprofessional 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 ManagementAdvice

    Need 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.

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

    Former Employee - Design Engineer in Austin, TX

    I worked at Cirrus Logic full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    For 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 ManagementAdvice

    Upper 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.
