    I have been working at Imagination Technologies

    Pros

    nothing much. you get good work if you are born with golden spoon and if you can worship your manager(need not consider lead incase if you have). If you just obey whatever your manager says you can be lead in 4-5years even though it is product based company. If you dont learn anything just treat the job like data entry job you will have bright future and will be rewarded with promotion and hikes

    Cons

    If you are not of above type you dont get any of the earthquaking offers mentioned above

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job keep doing the same.

    I worked at Imagination Technologies

    Pros

    good technologies to work
    good employee cooperation
    lot of scope to learn

    Cons

    too much of variations in the salary for the guys with same experience

    no work life balance. you are forced to stay 9 hours even if you are not assigned any work.

    everybody is a lead or manager with no team members

    managers with zero management skills

    you get appraisal only if you are either a relative or say yes to everything that your boss says.
    you show your offer letter, you get hike. if you continue working in the company you get peanuts.
    always chant the boss name and be in good books and you get very good hike in salary or promotion.

    you get promotion only if you are either a relative or say yes to everything that your manager says .
    if somebody in your team or other team gets promotion, you make that a big issue and get promotion.

    never try to give any suggestions or ideas. you will be treated as enemy. managers not open to new ideas or suggestions. you are forced to follow what they think is right.

    managers take every thing personal. they don't have any exposure to outside world. 90 percent of the managers started their career in the same company (Hellosoft)

    unequal distribution of work. few are always busy and others are idle.

    never treat the employees the same.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    UK team has to closely monitor both technical and financial matters of hyderabad division.
    make sure the salaries are competent with the industry standards and not too much of
    variation in the salary for the guys with almost same experience

    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.
