    I have been working at Cirrus Logic full-time (More than a year)

    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!

    Depending on the organization that you are hired into will depend on how much you enjoy your job. A good org means freedom and professional growth while others means micromanagement out the wazoo

    I worked at Cirrus Logic full-time

    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.
