Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Management issues! Very political environment. Technology and engineering expertise is significantly behind state of the art. Company tries to make up for technology shortcomings by throwing happy hours and giving out t-shirts.

Pros

T-shirts, happy hours, nice facility.

Cons

Data systems, test technology, system engineering non-existent, test engineering poor, test hardware development team is the worst

Smart People to work with, but growth opportunities not clear

People are nice and everyone works hard for products to succeed. Managers are good, not much micromanagement in most teams. Refresher vesting is not industry standard. No clear growth ladder.

Pros

Good teammates, interesting work, good culture

Cons

Compensation, No growth

I am productive with an evil micromanager that slows down work

Cirrus Logic is a great place to work with many benefits. But lately, it has been seen to be necessary to keep the workers. With an evil vindictive micromanager, your work is slowed down so you can watch your back.

Pros

Free snacks and drinks. Open bar and food during mandated company meetings.

Cons

Constant verbal downgrading and the stress of trying to protect your back.

Job seekers rely on your experience.

Every work experience is unique. Let people know your thoughts on previous employers.

Great People, Unique Culture and Job Fulfillment

Great People, Unique Culture and Job Fulfillment. The downside, unless you're an engineer the value of your position is unequal and treatment is given accordingly. Overall, truly great people make up 99% of the company and working amongst some of the smartest people in the industry within a unique culture is definitely a perk!

Learned a lot but no growth

This company has a great work/life balance. I was given a great opportunity to learn. Yet they do not provide security in your future as an employee. The company changes directions in corporate initiatives and requires lay offs in all departments, engineering through accounting. Great place to work, but always have an exit plan no matter how many years you have been there.

Was a good internship

Was a very educational opportunity as how a tech/engineering company operates and the responsibilities expected from employees. Most management were very supportive and helpful integrating me into the workforce. Hours were flexible enough to allow for scheduling around important events.

Great Place to work

If you really want to be in the forefront of technology for audio processors this is the company. They are really laid back here and everyone here is very intelligent and willing to get along to ensure we are producing good product for our customer. Only drawback is that layoffs happen more often than anyone would like. This is due to the volatility of the industry with audio processors and MEMS.

Great culture and opportunity for career advancement

Great work life balance. There are some stressful situations at times, but rare. Excellent benefits with time off that increases with time on the job.

No place for advancement and female engineers treated unfairly

Cirrus marketing spends a lot of time to present itself as a young hip company but on the inside it is anything but. Sexism is still a huge part of the culture so I do not recommend working here if you are female. Managers actually go out of their way to not allow employees to learn new skill and advance their careers. If you want an easy job where your opinions are not welcome work here. If you want to grow as an engineer and work somewhere that values everyone this is not the place for you.

Official response from Cirrus Logic

June 17, 2019
We appreciate well-intended reviews of the company from any employee, current or former, as honest and balanced viewpoints about the employee experience are often useful in helping to foster our culture of innovation and promote the career development of our engineers from all walks of life, regardless of their position, gender or ethnicity. Cirrus Logic dedicates significant resources to supporting a multitude of STEM-related activities throughout our communities to encourage school-aged young women to pursue education in technology-related fields. We’re proud the company has taken an aggressive approach to promoting its female engineering workforce through active participation in great organizations such as Girlstart, Code 2 College, IEEE Women in Engineering, WISE, WES, and SWE just to name but a few. While this reviewer’s viewpoint provides their own individual perspective, such perspective can be difficult to extrapolate toward a larger understanding of the culture of the company as a whole. For that reason, meaningful perspective is typically found by looking into aggregate survey results. Cirrus Logic uses the Great Place to Work organization’s methodology from which to annually gauge overall employee opinions in several core areas. With respect to our female employees, the company’s score in these key areas in 2018 were as follows: Credibility, 91; Respect, 91; Fairness, 89; Pride, 92; Camaraderie, 92. While there is always room for improvement, on balance the company is firmly committed to building not only a great culture but a rewarding career path for all its employees.

Great place to work.

Work, Life, Balance. Very friendly working environment. Great benefits. Lots of extras activities to take part of, or not. Happy hour every Friday. Monthly concert.

Pros

Highly competitive pay and benefits.

Cons

Business success is too dependent on one customer.

Productive fun place to work

A lot of companies state that they are focused on their people, but in the end their words fall short. At Cirrus our leadership has been developed in-house, so they have been employees here. As such they have always prioritized company culture and providing benefits to employees.

Good People working hard to keep the company profitable.

Cirrus logic was a good place to work. The company provided several fringe benefits that really allowed their employees to enjoy working downtown. There were occasional classes to help engineers to do their jobs. They provided opportunities to work in different areas to provide some variety to the workplace. The one con that I would say is that the fringe benefits and company culture focus on a person who is single rather than for families. There are some family benefits, one family activity in summer. The rest of the year is focused on "single life".

Pros

Free Sodas. Free shuttle bus/train passes.

Struggling company with serious leadership issues

A lot of in-fighting between UK and American teams. Serious leadership issue and fighting. Thrashes around engineering teams from one decision to another. Toxic environment.

Fun Place to Work

Its a good place to work. They have a lot of fun activities to reduce workplace stress. Weekly Happy Hours is the best. The Work culture is relaxed when no project deadline is there but becomes quite hectic when a deadline has to be met. But this is the story of every company. The worst thing about Cirrus is, their interns even after working so hard for 7-8 months are not appreciated for their efforts and are not offered a Full Time in most cases recently. This is bad and it feels like Cirrus is looking for cheap employees to do the same work Full Timers do.

Good company but volatile market

The company is a good employer, but because the company only makes one type of product, it is volatile depending on the consumer demand of the product.
