Good company, great technology, and good people, but sadly, management does not value its employees

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Pune

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

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementThe 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.

Great Company but needs to evolve to keep up

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Pune

I worked at Imagination Technologies full-time

ProsIt was a very nice experience working with quite a lot of smart people. The Work/Life balance is great. Flexible timings. The company is growing and has a bright future. If you are lucky or if you prove yourself, you can get to work on cutting-edge technologies. You get to interact/collaborate with some very smart and knowledgeable people working in the UK.

ConsLack of good programming/development/Testing practices(or rather enforcement).
Over reliance on engineers working in the UK. Some amount of bureaucracy.
Some managers are not that motivated themselves and fail to motivate engineers in the team to keep going.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe interviewing procedures need to evolve.
It is wrong to assume that only people from reputed colleges are good engineers.
Get rid of the bureaucracy that does exists to some extent. Few very good engineers have left in the past because of that.
Train, learn, try and match the standard of engineers working in the UK in order to reduce the reliance on them.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
