    I have been working at Synopsys full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Exposure to leading edge semiconductor technologies and circuit design.

    Synopsys is the most financially sound EDA company, and the caliber of co-workers is high.

    Cons

    Limited career growth and below average job satisfaction due to the highly reactive nature of a career in EDA. This isn't specific to Synopsys, though. It is characteristic of the EDA industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Aid employees in finding career development opportunities.

    The salary structure is a mystery. Even if your product group exceeds revenue goals the annual bonus / incentive pay is unpredictable.

    Mgmt is aware of employees' hard work and over-time hours. Proactively reward / recognize employees' accomplishments rather than wait for them to resign from Synopsys.
