    Employee benefits are good
    Good work culture

    No clear future scope . Lots of acquiring due to which losses and hence merciless layoffs made the company very bad in my view.

    Advice to Management

    Donot acquire a company if not clear of what to do with it.

    Pros

    Pockets of great innovation. If you can get in the right team they use the latest technologies

    Cons

    Lack of product management or business direction. Best thing about the IT department is their incompetence which allows engineers to make things happen in the shadows

    Advice to Management

    Slash and burn. The share price should rise, what more do you want?

    I have been working at Imagination Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Working for IMG is not a bad way for an adult to get the feeling that he's still in his early university years, be it in terms of humour or in terms of adherence to strict procedure and professional practices. Probably a very good approximation of a 9-5 job, but still in the tech sector.

    Cons

    If you are not into living an infinite-loop of your college years you will possibly find it hard to identify a good team to be a part of. Current state of affairs appears to be headless-chicken mode, which saps whatever morale was left. Quite a few people are strong illustrations of the Peter principle in action.

    Pros

    IMG has some really great engineers, and a friendly culture. There is a lot to learn and the ability to experience a lot.

    Cons

    Poor salary and bad management. Lots of cuts being made at the moment with no thought as to the long term plan or morale of employees. There doesn't seem to be much care or thought for the people working at the company.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain better communication with employees and look after them better.
