    Pros

    Cirrus has a relaxed work environment and does a great job of hiring hard-working people who help each other succeed. The company offers fabulous health benefits and a decent 401(k) plan. There are tons of other perks such as employee events, free snacks, a shuttle service, and an onsite clinic. The CEO is a very straight-forward and approachable.

    Cons

    Remote work is generally discouraged, some internal politics/bickering.

    Thanks for taking the time to respond. You list a large number and just some of the great programs that make this a great place to work. As far as easing the commute experience, is public transportation an option for you? Capital Metro has expanded their offerings with better routes and more frequency in recent months. And these services are 100% reimburseable. The Cirrus Logic shuttles, the Green Line and Orange Line, are also a great -- and no cost! -- way to get to work hassle free.

    Business success is often tied to success of largest client.

    Pros

    Relaxed, friendly work environment—Cirrus places great focus on employee well-being and company culture. Interesting technology areas with opportunities to make an impact on end user experience.

    Cons

    Projects tend to be overstaffed and inundated with process for the sake of process, making it hard to progress toward a common goal. Time spent in "fire-fighting" mode makes it difficult to develop new technical skills.

    Pros

    Good atmosphere, great people to work with. The company strives to create a good working environment. The extra benefits are good, employee celebrations. The company does not scrimp on paying for what's needed to get the job done. Employees treated very well. Good respect for recognising that long term pressure is not good, downtime between projects. Company is currently very profitable.

    Cons

    Not likely to be working on bleeding edge technologies. Doubts about the medium to long term prospects for the company. Growth has slowed recently and could be taken over.

    I worked at Cirrus Logic full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great perks, such as: happy hours, free snacks & beverages, company events, healthcare and an awesome 401k matching program. Nice downtown location, easy commute if you live close to the area, but disastrous commute if you're far north or south. Easy to make friends with (most) coworkers.

    Cons

    No growth, and a lot of favoritism. Feels like any ideas, suggestions, or criticism that employees have are rebuffed or not seriously considered. So much hiring, but a lot of downtime. Feast or famine type of environment. Also, not a very friendly work environment for women, which may be a consequence of the industry, BUT it doesn't have to be.

    Thanks for the review. We also agree that there’s lots to like about working here at Cirrus Logic, including the perks mentioned above. Not to mention our health and welfare benefits package, onsite gym and exercises classes, free guitar lessons, monthly employee concerts, free commuter transportation, our very own Innovations Conference, Cirrus Logic’s Kid’s Club, and the outreach and support we provide to the local community. And just to highlight a few other unique activities that we do for our employees and their families, we can’t forget events like the annual Halloween “Boo at the Zoo.” Cirrus Logic strives to create a great working environment for everyone, and the feedback we receive from employees through the Great Place to Work and the Workplace Dynamics/Austin American-Statesman employee surveys seem to indicate that overall we’re doing a pretty good job. And of course through our Connected Network group we’re active supporters of such organizations as the Society of Women’s Engineers, Women in Engineering Society (UK), GirlStart programs and the Texas Women’s Conference, to name a few. Finally, it’s worth noting that as of our most recent fiscal year, 2017, the company posted revenue growth of more than 25 percent for the third consecutive year.
