    Good company, great technology, and good people, but sadly, management does not value its employees

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Pune (India)

    ProsGreat work culture, talented colleagues, cutting-edge technologies, and plenty to learn

    ConsBenefits are on lower side, employees don't feel valued, company doesn't pass on returns to employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe benefits are the only deal-breaker. Seriously consider your compensation and benefits package (especially for India) to avoid losing talent. It doesn't always have to be cash, can be in kind such as gifts, outings, parties etc.

    Spend more on keeping existing employees happy rather than going out on an acquisition spree every time you get some money in the bank.

    Great company full of interesting work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Kings Langley, England (UK)

    ProsFriendly environment with people really passionate about their work. Plenty of variety day-to-day and you never feel without a challenge. Great transport links, easily commutable from London.

    ConsSalary increases are sometimes unclear and perhaps a little less than competitive with similar jobs. Career progression can also be somewhat of an unknown.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDoing a great job, keep it up.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    My dream job... up to the pay

    Hardware Design Engineer (Current Employee)
    Kings Langley, England (UK)

    ProsVery nice and inspiring working environment with interesting and challenging tasks to work on surrounded by very talented people.

    ConsGood heavens, the pay! It is the lowest salary in the market (compared to similar companies like ARM), they don't pay overtime (that you do regularly, at least 5 hours per week) and the fantastic medical package with which they justify the low pay is literally useless. It covers nothing that the NHS doesn't cover, not even basic dentistry (not even check-ups), and you still have to go to your NHS GP first (and wait for weeks for an appointment or for death, whichever comes first), and the only thing it really does is to allow you to choose a specialist rather than taking the one your GP wants. Literally just that; and you have to pay extra for your spouse and kids. Besides, the company is only 30 miles from London, which means that you won't find a decent one-bedroom flat for less than 1000 quid per month. Also, London Midland (railway) is disproportionately expensive. That makes the low salary seem even worse.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe products you're so proud of and that are making the company grow are developed by your bright and hard-working engineers. If you don't stop paying them that bad, you're going to lose them. How can it be that your sales and marketing people (bachelors, maybe a few masters) are paid twice as much as your engineers? Without your engineers (all masters and even phds with honours and years of experience), there would be no products for them to sell.
    And stop treating your engineers like scum. Jolly, throwing out all microwaves in a building full of engineers and with no external visitors just because "somebody" allegedly complained about warm-food smells! And with what efficiency! I wish you would react that fast when your employees complain about uncomfortable, old chairs, too little desk space or bad keyboards!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very positive, enjoyed working their a lot and everyone was very friendly.

    Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    Watford, East of England, England (UK)

    ProsFriendly and supported atmosphere, social events and as treat Wednesdays, and the food at the canteen was surprisingly good as well.

    ConsThe pay is fairly poor for their competitors and they do expect you to work hard, but that is reasonable.

    ProsExcellent team work environment (at least in my office)
    Company with strong leading presence in the market
    Opportunity to work with current and next generation graphics

    ConsPay increase not properly explained, shares scheme takes too long and not currently paying out, job opportunity seemed exciting but turned out into boring projects most of the time.
