    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.

    Pros

    Products and vision are a driving force in the market and ANSYS is a leader here.

    Cons

    Ability to be agile, strategy concepts, leadership lacking for large company. Marketing and IT staff are the worst groups in the company. ANSYS needs a better understanding on how to manage large accounts and how to compensate those that manage them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to force multiply your sales staff with your sales reps. You will get more with honey than with vinegar!
