    I have been working at Ansoft


    The best reason to join Ansoft is to work with world-class experts in electromagnetism
    R&D engineers have a great autonomy in their work , flexible hours, and benefit from the lack of management skills from the upper management (excepted for the CTO and founder of course)
    Great compensation but will not last with our recent acquisition by ANSYS


    Benefits beside compensation are not great in particular no 401k matching
    Very difficult to transfer health benefits to non-married partners (although it's possible in theory)
    Low moral since ANSYS acquisition
     Key Ansoft executives have been let go, the others are mostly busy saving their job rather than showing leadership .
