    Pros

    I work with extremely intelligent people who I feel appreciate my contributions. ANSYS offers great pay, generous vacation, and competitive benefits. It's a company that continues to grow and has a fantastic product and client base. I love working here.

    Cons

    Employee share of health insurance continues to increase. Investment is needed in shared service applications and support. I'm not sure how competitive the 401(k) match is.

    Pros

    worked as a co-op and was given as much opportunity as I wanted. I was able to take on more difficult projects as I proved my capability in doing so.

    Cons

    It was not always clear what the end goal for some of my projects was, but I guess that comes with the territory of R&D

    Pros

    Smart friendly people. I was just an intern but it seems like Ansys is ran well. The software products they make are interesting and useful.

    Cons

    The buildings climate might have been too dry, maybe it was just winter. No cons

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Training program is willy-nilly. CRM is temperamental.

    Advice to Management

    Toss 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.
