    Pros

    - There were some smart and hard-working people.
    - Good location.

    Cons

    - In hindsight, Imagination was too much reliant on a single customer (Apple). They should have tried harder to expand their customer base before Apple decided to cut ties with Imagination.
    - Poor communication between the UK headquarter and the US offices.
    - Compensation wasn't competitive by industry standard.
    - Some of the managers and employees were subpar and under-qualified.
