Cirrus Logic, which supplies signal processing chips for the audio and energy industries, sponsors major live-music shows and a monthly “Cirrus Rocks!” concert series for employees and their families. Fun is everywhere here, with events like pie bake-offs, VIP tickets through sponsorship of the giant SXSW Music Festival and the annual company-sponsored “Corporate Battle of the Bands” that raises money with local charities for under-insured local musicians. Referring new employees can score you up to $20,000 and a new iPad, and milestones in product technology development are celebrated with keggers on the huge deck along Shoal Creek in downtown Austin.

Each month, Cirrus Logic celebrates employee birthdays with a treat, like ice cream, pie or cupcakes.

The monthly "Cirrus Rocks!" concerts are always an employee "fan favorite." The final concert at Cirrus' former headquarters asked employees to "Kiss This Building Goodbye."
