    Pros

    Excellent team work environment (at least in my office)
    Company with strong leading presence in the market
    Opportunity to work with current and next generation graphics

    Cons

    Pay increase not properly explained, shares scheme takes too long and not currently paying out, job opportunity seemed exciting but turned out into boring projects most of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clarify pay increase

    Current Employee - Design Engineer in Kings Langley, England

    Pros

    The open environment amongst engineers together with the breadth of activity provides a technically exciting atmosphere. Technical discussions are easy and information can be sought from other parts of the company with no barrier. Any active interest is never discouraged.
    There are many able and skilled engineers.
    The new building is excellent, furnished to a high standard. The canteen provides good quality food with a lot of variety.

    Cons

    The open culture between engineers is adapting to change due to expansion. The company has expanded rapidly and some of the infrastructure is still adapting. The expansion makes career paths somewhat unclear however it does provide opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the company expands, be sure not to lose sight of the many great engineers working for you.

    A good company to work at, but not much better than the average in the industry

    Pros

    relaxed environment, with reasonably flexible hours
    potentially interesting work if you are lucky enough
    The social club and the canteen are a good bonus

    Cons

    low salaries especially for people living in london
    The company grew fast and has not adapted to its new size. Thus its disorganized and the management from team leaders and above is below average

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am not really a manager, but the Cons say it all. so try to fix them. The amount of human time and potential wasted in the company is embarrassing

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Low 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 ManagementAdvice

    Your engineers is the company's value. Start treating them like this.

    Current Employee - Graduate RTL Hardware Design Engineer in Kings Langley, England

    Pros

    Friendly people, exciting company philosophy, it is really interesting to work there. The company is leader on the GPU for mobiles market, and so the projects are amazing. Not too much pressure from the hierarchy, we can feel really involved in the company achievements.

    Cons

    Salary is really low, compared to the market rate. Benefits are quite low: share awards are really unfair as you are not even sure to get a bonus. Health insurance is just basic and could be way better.
    The location is not great but not bad either, nothing to do about it.

    Pros

    Constant change, innovation really believed in, not just paid lip service to, super people, interesting technology areas such as graphics, video, audio plus consumer brand Pure, which adds whole other aspect to company

    Cons

    Constant change, no coasting, not that many peers to go to in UK after having been at Imagination - all look like a step down.

    A very broad, challenging and interesting place to work, with a very good work ethic.

    Current Employee - Design Engineer  in  Kings Langley, England
    Current Employee - Design Engineer in Kings Langley, England

    Pros

    Surrounded by some fantastic engineers.
    Develop leading technology across multiple fields so numerous interesting projects to be part of / learn about.
    Growing very rapidly so opportunities for career development as teams have to scale.
    Very exciting times as the company becomes more well known and talked about.
    Invests heavily in its employees so its not a company people want to leave.

    Cons

    As above, the company is growing very rapidly and its difficult to get the people the company needs. This affects employees but is also not necessarily something the company do a great deal about.
    Office space is a little problematic at times, but this will be resolved as numerous new buildings are under construction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is doing a lot of interesting things, make sure that all employees are aware of them since, like the company meeting, they inspire and motivate people a lot.

    Pros

    The culture is an open one where you're encouraged to work closely with any engineer in any department in any team at any time, to get the right expertise and input into your work so you can do a great job. Nobody is off limits, including the CEO and architecture team, and we work on some of the most exciting and popular consumer electronics on the market, so the satisfaction in seeing people enjoy your work is everywhere.

    Cons

    There are some growing pains as the company adds staff quickly, and the existing buildings are becoming cramped.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure the engineers lower in the company know that you appreciate their hard work.
