    I worked at Cirrus Logic full-time

    Pros

    Job stability, not much work to keep you busy all the time, a lot of design opportunities such as amp, ldo, oscillator, adc, dac, class-D amp, esd, pads, etc. It is good place if you come there as experienced.

    Cons

    Only few people can design complex designs such as ADC/DAC/class-D. Those people are usually very friend with top managers. Not all managers are given exciting projects. You may feel there two levels of citizens. compensation is lower than others but they keep increasing by 3%-4% every year.

    Good projects driven by strong customer demand and requirements. Good work culture. Good benefits and perks. Happy hours, rock concerts organized regularly. Guitar and fitness classes at work.

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

    Pros

    They have a nice office building in downtown, and the employees get pampered with many perks, including Happy Hour drinks, and tickets to musical events like SXSW.

    Cons

    The management is terribly inconsistent, fosters favoritism and there is plenty of politics. Good work is not acknowledged. Instead, in many groups, like the Design Verification group, some people in management with big egos target engineers towards their personal agendas. I was not even given a fair performance evaluation. The management can be very sneaky and dishonest. A few years earlier, I was made an offer in their Tucson, AZ office. When I asked about sustainability of that business in Tucson, I was given a rosy picture. About 3 weeks after I was made that offer, they shut down the Tucson office. I'm glad I had not taken their offer! They have limited product offerings, in only a single market, with only one major customer.

    We welcome comments from our current employees as well as former employees such as yourself. We do think that the many perks such as the ones you mention are pretty cool and unique, and we’re always looking at new programs to enhance our corporate culture and employee engagement. As the additional feedback seemed very specific, including the reference to our Tucson operations from which the company exited more than five years ago, it’s difficult to provide comment, but we do appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback.

    I worked at Cirrus Logic

    Pros

    Free tix, beer, happy hours etc, to attract interns to join full time should they be offered.

    Cons

    The worst work-life balance, constant stress from layoffs (3 last year), unresponsive managers, and concentration on just one customer. Tier 2 managers are somewhat lazy, and are only around to make sure they can let people know their fate literally hangs in the balance. Forget Engg, even the HR got laid off here.

    I worked at Cirrus Logic for less than a year

    Pros

    People here almost know each other. They motivate each other. Lots of fun and activities stuff. Great Employee care. Really one of the best place to work and career growth.

    Cons

    Since the company is small and tightly knit, the work schedules will be tight. In some perspectives, the work culture will be clearly different from bigger companies.
