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

    Pros

    Work life balance, good compensation, employee friendly policies.

    Cons

    Laid back culture, not aggressive as the market demands it to be.
    Not much into design and patents, except for the graphics team.
    Similar work profile over years, not so good work with the Indian counterparts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More innovative work for deserving employees to retain the talent pool.
    Try making the team more discussion and learning driven, rather than just getting work done!!

    Pros

    Great work culture, talented colleagues, cutting-edge technologies, and plenty to learn

    Cons

    Benefits are on lower side, employees don't feel valued, company doesn't pass on returns to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The benefits are the only deal-breaker. Seriously consider your compensation and benefits package (especially for India) to avoid losing talent. It doesn't always have to be cash, can be in kind such as gifts, outings, parties etc.

    Spend more on keeping existing employees happy rather than going out on an acquisition spree every time you get some money in the bank.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Compare compensation and health benefits with Silicon Valley industry norm.
