The best thing about working at Cirrus is the great work culture and work life balance.
Less room for professional growth after a certain level (esp in leadership track)

Some positions, teams, and managers are great and have a very good work life balance.
You may hire into a position completely different where you have no future regardless of how well you perform. It is all determined by internal politics and if you are lucky enough to be in the inner circle. The latter can result from a random hallway conversation, an email, or where your cubicle is. Do you feel lucky? Overall there are good managers and executives here that try to do the right thing but be careful. There are some incompetent and unsavory executives here that only care about their own advancement.4

What rocks about Cirrus Logic is the employee engagement, benefits, and upbeat culture.
What flops about Cirrus Logic is a large knowledge gap between directors, managers, and workers. Management wants to manage from the top down but can’t function without workers managing up.

* Snacks were good * Employee engagement activities good * Facilities were good.
*Very hard line top down management. They don't want to hear anything from the bottom going up, and if you do say anything it will be held against you. * Weekly meetings focused on everything going wrong and not accomplishments or positive activities. Every week the meetings were pretty much a downer. As a subordinate you learn quickly to keep your mouth shut. And by the gods, whatever you do, do NOT smile. I was reprimanded for smiling. * All managers and employees that somehow had been there a long time treated people very unprofessionally and with disrespect. Multiple instances of unprofessional behavior.3

Decent pay, office perks, fun office events
Under the direction of the new CEO, the former values of Cirrus Logic have been abandoned. While it’s likely not directly his fault, the unfortunate people he has chosen to hire in positions of management are failing enormously. Rather than assimilating into the company and its culture, these new managers felt it was more ethical and easier for them to simply fire everyone in sight so they could start with a fresh new team. It doesn’t matter to them how many lives they ruin by doing this, it’s all about them. In actuality, due to the amazingly warm and professional culture that Cirrus previously boasted, these new managers could have been welcomed with open arms and received wisdom and guidance from their teams of dedicated workers, most of whom who had been loyal to Cirrus for decades. Unfortunately for the new management, this now means that both they and their new teams have no idea what they’re doing. Most of the newer employees quickly realized they had hopped aboard a scuttled ship and jumped as soon as they could. The turnover is shocking. This is not the place it used to be. These new managers are calculated, inhumane, unethical, and cutthroat. If you had asked me five years ago to give a review of Cirrus Logic, I’d have given it more than 5 stars if I could have. Unfortunately, this place is just not what it used to be. Do yourself a favor and stay away.15

Our culture is AMAZING. I have never loved working for a company more. There is a lot of support for upward growth without supervisors feeling insecure about you increasing your skillset. I was hired on with limited knowledge and taught a lot of on the job training which has been really rewarding. The benefits are excellent and they provide company sponsored healthcare, PTO, discounts for childcare and subsidies for family care, parental leave, surrogacy and adoption assistance programs, fertility coverage, on-site fitness facilities, and mental health support. We have groups that help younger professionals find mentorship at Cirrus and pay for memberships for us to be apart of other professional working groups in Austin. I am apart of the Women’s Leadership Team and I am in many PODs that help foster growth and facilitate tough professional development conversations. Other fun perks are happy hours on Thursday or Friday that usually have a theme or charity and a Lyft credit for the entire night after so you can have a free safe ride home. There are free vending machines in every major building and huge free snack areas on every floor.
We are still in the office 2 days a week. This is necessary for my role, but not for all roles.1
