    Pros

    decent starting salary but you no growth prospect. people get like 1 increment in 2-3 years.
    Office hours are flexible.

    Cons

    Terrible management: not concerned about their employees' well being, no social events
    Salary: decent starting salary but less to less - no increments, no incentives, no other facility
    Growth aspect: First promotion for a grad is offered only after 3 years in company which is weird and most people in the company are married with kids so less-no scope for a role improvement.
    Company is struggling financially so expect frequent cost cuts and lay offs.
    Very strong hierarchy system.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce hierarchy.
    You are too frugal, Invest money in making your employees happy.

    I have been working at Imagination Technologies full-time

    Pros

    The people are great people but the new CFO and CEO only cares about meeting numbers.

    Cons

    The work environment is extremely depressing. A lot of unhappy people. Not the kind of place that you would want to join at this time with all the uncertainties and restructuring.
