    I worked at Imagination Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Management team provides clear, visionary message to employees. Ample opportunities for career and professional growth with industry leader. Roadmap and expectations to achieve goals were clearly articulated.

    Cons

    Compensation was below industry standard, especially long term incentive plan. Autocratic cultural values disempowered middle management. Support staffing was uncomfortably lean and seemed close to burnout.

    Advice to Management

    Compare compensation and health benefits with Silicon Valley industry norm.
