    Pros

    I think working at this company is really relaxing

    Cons

    The company needs more structure in terms of technical sense, currently there doesn't seem to be business owners and things get dropped on us from high, where everything is urgent. Also the pay is rather low compared to other places, which makes leaving more attractive

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay, and try to follow an agile approach

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

    Pros

    Great working environment where you're exposed to different parts of the company and the people creating the technology.

    Cons

    Management seems to be blind to the existential threats to the core businesses. The new CEO is definitely trying to clean up the mess left behind by his predecessor.

    Pros

    Very interesting and challenging problems to be solved. There is the chance to work across multiple groups at the same time. A good place where to make your own difference

    Cons

    very bad management. Same errors again and again ... and again. There should be much more transparency and comunications across the all the groups

    Advice to Management

    Management should be much more engaged with all the engineer, not only for technical tasks but also for business decision and comunications

    I have been working at Imagination Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some really great things about working here. The people and atmosphere is pleasant, and except when there's a deadline, it's easy for work to be fairly flexible. A good place for someone with a family or dependents.

    Cons

    Imagination doesn't really value its employees. Salaries are low, career progression is almost non-existent, and projects are managed badly leading to wasted effort and frustration. These could be fixed if management took a more proactive approach and realized that they need to invest in their greatest asset.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to your employees and get to know them better. Invest in training, career progression, sort out your atrocious project management and make Imagination a place where people are getting more from working there than just a below-average salary.
