    Not a good company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIf you just want to stay here for long its good place

    ConsWork is not good, just some modifications of previous design, company is not stable they have closed numerous design center, laid of many people, even hired people from India for UK and fired them within an year, so you loose you Indian job and left with nowhere, not an open culture, lots of documentation and less design work

    great place for graduates/junior engineers

    Senior Design Engineer (Current Employee)
    Newbury, England (UK)

    Prosgreat learning environment, esp for new grads/ juniors.. you're exposed to different departments and you get to choose your speciality after 2 years.
    project managers separate from suervisors, so less bullsh!t
    shared culture of trust & constructive criticism esp when it comes to technical stuff
    amazing set of people, now fast diminishing!
    flexi timings
    not much beuraucracy, at least in IC design.

    Consmanagement keeps changing priorities & too many re-orgs
    getting too much into software is diluting the IC business - real core of the company seems to have been lost
    not much training budget in the past few years due to low revenues

    Advice to Senior Managementrefocus on core analogue audio and you can still beat the best in business, don't invest too much in software

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

    A good bunch of people.

    Design Engineer (Former Employee)
    Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

    ProsThe people.
    Lots of opportunity to develop a broad range of skills.

    ConsThe main issue is the lack of managment . Priorities change regularly and timescales are always tight. As a result the quality of the work is often compromised.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt is important that priorities don't change so often.
    Listen to what your team has to say.
    Engineers like to work to a high standard, please don't let tight timescales compromose this.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
