    I worked at Imagination Technologies full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You do get useful experience on how the industry works and you get exposure to workflows etc. Compensation is decent I suppose.

    Cons

    Very little creative work you can very easily get stuck with maintenance of nightmarish codebases with no say at all, all this contrary to the job spec. As a graduate you are completely expendable and unappreciated. You main activities will involve running behind other people's mess. Benefits such as stocks that you can cash in after 5 years and relocation expenses which you must pay back if you leave before 2 years are a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more senior/talented people instead of swarms of graduates invest in good practices and build a better culture/environment.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Imagination Technologies.

    Interview Details

    1. Phone interview for some basic engineering questions
    2. Technical question sheet you do and send back
    3. On site interview about your past project and design questions
    4. Phone interview with HR

    Both the engineers and HR person are very friendly and they are really fast at getting back at me. It is mainly my fault for the process to take so long.

    Interview Questions
    • There really isn't anything unexpected, the HR questions are also really standard and no tricky question like your weakness or how to deal with someone who is hard to work with.   Answer Question
    No Offer
