    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.

    I have been working at Imagination Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Work with leading technology. Very good team support, you can learn a lot. Some flexibility regarding to the entry and exit times, but the week minimum hours are fixed.

    Cons

    Some uncertainty at this time. Because the current situation, pay rises are symbolic, even with a high performance during the year.

    Advice to Management

    Look for ways that increase the employees benefits that don't impact the company budget. For example, remote work reduces transport expenses and saves time and some employees are able to work that way.
