    I worked at Imagination Technologies full-time

    Pros

    It 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.

    Cons

    Lack 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 ManagementAdvice

    The 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.
