Nice environment, badly orginised

Graduate Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Kings Langley, England

I have been working at Imagination Technologies full-time for more than a year

ProsImagination is a nice environmenment to work in with flexible work hours. There are good engineers and you are in the heart of technology.

ConsLow salaries, very badly organised (it is a mess) probably because they have enjoyed a sudden growth. You either are lucky and fit or not. the flexible working hours turn out to be long hours...

Advice to Senior ManagementYour engineers is the company's value. Start treating them like this.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Will look good on your CV, but mainly for financial reasons, not a long term career option

Design Engineer (Current Employee)
Kings Langley, England

I have been working at Imagination Technologies

ProsAdmittedly, IMG is a name that will stand out on your CV.
Working with the most advanced hardware, the best product in our target market.
A relaxed atmosphere in most teams.

ConsSalary is quite uncompetitive.
Bureaucracy and process
Middle management can be clueless
Probably too many people working on the software

Advice to Senior ManagementSalaries should be reviewed more regularly.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Nice place to work but lacks monetary attraction.

Engineer (Former Employee)
Chepstow, Wales

I worked at Imagination Technologies

ProsSome interesting software/chip design projects; friendly and professional people; slightly cheap living

ConsNot competitive salary; no recognition mechanism in place
Salary should reflect market rates and be increased. More responsibilities should be shared with other Engineers.
Share option is not worth, so should not be a selling point.

Advice to Senior ManagementReview salary and compare against market rate;

Good but limited experience builder

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Imagination Technologies

ProsMarket leading technologies in several different fields
Patient organisation - this is not a place where people get fired
Great experience builder for young or inexperienced
Engineering heaven - you'll be surrounded by amazing brain power in various fields

ConsSalaries completely out of tune with market - leaving IMG will make your salary jump substantially
Senior management is here to stay - so there is a strong glass ceiling to promotions
Literally everybody is an engineer - makes for very one-sided thinking
This is Hossein Yassaie's company - every single decision is made by him
Management often treats employees as dummies

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't underestimate employees - people are often a lot smarter than you think, and can easily see through management litany and smoke screens. You would be amazed what people can produce and contribute, if you only put a little faith in their ability. Salary levels desperately need adjustment.
