    Pros

    Provides decent starting salary to freshers, and does not attempt to fleece them. Less politics compared to some American companies in Silicon Valley.

    Cons

    Though starting salary is decent, less salary growth upon promotions. Salaries of experienced professionals are below Silicon Valley standards.

    I worked at Imagination Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Large number of technically competent people, culture of well organized code, gives opportunities to young engineers, real products that were used by the industry leaders (Apple, Samsung)

    Cons

    The flagship GPU product lost key accounts to ARM, MIPS core used by Intel/MobilEye is lost as well, in the past there were many divisions with unrelated businesses (like consumer radio). All this made company's position much weaker. Prefers hiring many college graduates instead of smaller number of experienced engineers which has both positive and negative sides (recent graduates have to be carefully trained).
