    Pros

    Great work place, very talented people. Lots of interesting challenges to face and easy to get experience in several aspects of the job.

    Cons

    Top-down communication is not at its best, and some of the business units seem to lack a long term strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Make the roadmaps more visible to the engineering teams. Benefits are still a bit on the weak side.

    Pros

    Most people here are great and have good work ethics. There are always some bad apples everywhere, but all in all it's good, especially in my team (the bad apples left for Apple :P).

    Cons

    Upper Management is a bit slow on understanding some things on the technical side, missing opportunities to have an edge on the competition and incentivise our (B2B) customers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your engineers' suggestions. They know their field better than you. That's what you pay them for, so trust their input!

    I have been working at Imagination Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great for exposure to hardware design cycle, challenging work, a unique experience, nice canteen. Good atmosphere in the office. I've learned a lot.

    Cons

    Poor documents, weak project management and structure. Don't socialise much outside of teams. The day to day is pretty routine, I get bored doing the same thing day in day out.

    Advice to Management

    Better dissemination of best practices. Outline best practices. There should be more interest in career development at each level that follows a structure. Mentoring, management development, coding etc.
