    Great place for graduate engineers to learn, bad place for experienced engineers to make a living.

    I have been working at Imagination Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's a great place for graduate engineers to learn a great deal in short time. Freshly graduated engineers can start writing RTL from day 1, while our Cambridge brethren won't let you come anywhere near RTL without a PhD and many years of experience.
    Also, the company takes great pride in caring about the well-being of their employees: a good subsidised canteen, a ride-to-work scheme that allows you to lease a bicycle to go to work real cheap, stress management seminars, ...

    Cons

    The reason why they can allow fresh graduates to work on the hard things is that the experienced and talented people leave as soon as they realise that they're paid Highland wages while living in an area with London housing prices, and that salary and title progression are just a blurry promise at best and that the shares they give you as bonus (after completing three years) are worth nothing and plummet from year to year.
    The reason why they offer a subsidised canteen and leased bicycles is because they're probably aware that their engineers can't afford a used car, or a decent flat or to feed their child on what they earn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers, you must be proud of your achievements! Just look at your Porsches, Mercedes and BMWs on the car park! Just don't forget that qualified labour has a price or you're going to lose them all. By the way, now that you're on a building frenzy, maybe you could build subsidised company dorms. With your engineers living on campus, it will be more easy for them to work even more unpaid overtime.

    Have fun, I'm leaving soon. I finally found someone who values my skills and will double my salary. Double!

    I have been working at Imagination Technologies

    Pros

    Some interesting projects to work on; hw and sw teams are closely collaborated; easy to commute to london; colourful sports and social activities.

    Cons

    rare promotion opportunities; strict hierarchy system; hard to step into international industrial discussion; depressingly managed; needs to be make huge personal efforts in order to be recognised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not try to depress employees from time to time; give more constructive advices; bring harmony into the working environment.
