    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.

    I have been working at Imagination Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Startup mentality. Things are fast paced and diverse. I never feel like I'm stuck on a project that drags on. Nice work environment in downtown San Francisco.

    Cons

    Because of the startup feel, often times there is not a whole lot of code reviews. Sometimes it feels as though we are more concerned with getting a product out the door than writing correct code.

    Advice to Management

    Consider creating more time for code reviews. I like to think of my job as also being a learning experience and occasionally I feel as though I am not getting a whole lot of feedback on my work.
