“Cirrus rocks because of the people who work here. My co-workers are smart and ready to defuse a particularly challenging day with laughs and good work ethic. I also appreciate the honesty and clear, well-reasoned vision of Cirrus’ future from our leadership group.”
— Chin Y.







“At Cirrus Logic, it’s not like the movie, Groundhog Day, where every day is the same. Even for someone like me, an accountant. But, it’s not like Law & Order, either, where things move fast and it all wraps up in an hour. Rather, it’s a process. A fast-paced process, at times. But, one with a lot of adjustments and constant tweaking. Learning from mistakes. Moving forward. Sometimes in great leaps, but mostly gradually. Trying to continuously improve. So that we make better decisions. Make better products. And, make a better company.”
— Ky C.





“The people are great, the work is always interesting, and the technology is leading edge. The excellent work everybody does here is mixed with the fun of doing it, and each day ends with the fulfillment of having personally made a positive impact on some of the best customers and products in the world.”
— Chad H.






“It’s exciting to work at a company that is striving for innovation in every aspect of the company. I enjoy working at Cirrus Logic, because the company events are a great outlet in which to meet other members of the team and discuss ideas. I truly appreciate the flexibility of the work-life balance that Cirrus offers.”
— Suzanne T.





“Worked hard with the team on a product launch for an awesome Digital PFC chip that will make the earth a greener place. Spent my vacation at the World Cup in South Africa to watch the greatest spectacle on earth! Life is good! Living the dream!”
— Anwar “Mo” A.

    I have been working at Cirrus Logic full-time


    Company culture is huge. The saying is "we play hard and work hard". There are lots of perks, happy hours, monthly concerts, kids Halloween, Christmas parties, fitness classes. The benefits are outstanding.


    Culture is geared to attracting young employees. It is really tough to advance in this company if you are not part of the "in" culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company needs more organization in general. Why throw resources into a deadline to meet it? Why not become more organized? Utilize the talent in the company. Cut down on the "culture" expenses and eliminate RIF's.
