    Pros

    ANSYS is the typical midwest based engineering firm. Treat you really well , good benefits but base pay is low. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to be a part of a growing organization which treats you like a person, despite the size.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than industry standard. Growth was pretty stagnant on the engineering side.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    Pros

    Can build expertise in many areas (problem modelling, preprocessing tools, solvers, various models, postprocessing etc), and have access to various applications in the industry such as energy, process, oil and gas, automotive etc.

    Cons

    Only work on short term problems/projects. So, the expertise can be developed in width, but not sufficient in depth. Work may be trivial sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    It might be important to encourage the employees to develop continuously in addition to doing the core tasks. The personal development can also benefit the company a lot in the long run.

    Pros

    I worked as a coop for almost 8 months. The atmosphere of the place was amazing, the majority of the people I met were amazing and knew what they were doing. I got more out of those 8 months than I ever thought I would.

    Cons

    From what I have gathered the company doesn't really seem to know where it is going. A lot of things keep getting restructured, and they're are definitely people that I have met or talked to that didn't know what they were doing, or didn't seem to do much.

    Pros

    Good and helpful colleagues. A lot of engagement with customers which improve communication skills. You need to study all the time and be productive.

    Cons

    A lot of overtime which you won't get paid but you will learn out of it. Be prepared for missions and be away from home. You need to study all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Give opportunity
