    Very good company

    Territory Account Manager (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsAwesome culture, market dominance, brilliant staff, attentive and helpful management, generous compensation.

    ConsTraining program is willy-nilly. CRM is temperamental.

    Advice to Senior ManagementToss more dollars into designing a training program that is repeatable. Invest in a new CRM. An automated system of pairing up salespeople with applications engineers would streamline the appointment process. Other than that I really love the way that this company has grown and hope things continue on the current path.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Best company in the world for engineers interested in CAE

    Engineer (Current Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

    Pros1. Closely knit family of employees. Friendly and relaxing, yet not so laid back work culture. Well-balanced and excellent facilities. Get to build a high-tech network of people for a lifetime.
    2. You get to work with the smartest researchers and developers. Work-life balance is given importance here.
    3. Excellent software product with focus on customer.

    Cons1. Low turnover of employees cause lack of growth. Most employees never leave the company once they enter ANSYS. This could be due to lack of enough competitors for career transition.
    2. Management is not good enough.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove communication and transparency across different teams for better software integration and product. Focus on employee career.

    Innovative CAE company with a focus on providing software tools for holistic engineering simulation solutions

    Senior Manager (Current Employee) Pune (India)

    ProsVery dynamic company with the ability to define your work and carry out your ideas. Very supportive work culture with absence of hierarchical slow down.

    ConsFocused on simulation engineering and as a result would be of interest to more broad based engineering enthusiast rather than someone who wanted to design just one thing and would want to do experimental stuff as well.
