    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Cirrus Logic full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Police Officers throughout their buildings.
    New hire luncheon.
    30% discounts at the Grove restaurant.

    Cons

    Executives love the motto "Cirrus Logic Rocks" 🎸, but in reality it DOESN'T! If anything, it is rolling down a steep hill.
    Exhibit 1: Decreasing revenue, profit, and share price.
    Exhibit 2: Increasing dependence on ONE customer for over 80% of their business.
    Exhibit 3: Increasingly bloated workforce with redundancies all over.
    Result: working at Cirrus is as much fun as playing Russian Roulette or walking in a minefield.

    Advice to Management

    The Board needs to step in and bring new leadership to the table, otherwise this company is drudging towards irrelevancy.

    Pros

    Relaxed, friendly work environment—Cirrus places great focus on employee well-being and company culture. Interesting technology areas with opportunities to make an impact on end user experience.

    Cons

    Projects tend to be overstaffed and inundated with process for the sake of process, making it hard to progress toward a common goal. Time spent in "fire-fighting" mode makes it difficult to develop new technical skills.

    Advice to Management

    Resource projects more efficiently.
