    Pros

    It is the company if you like to do engineering simulation software, such as mechanical design, fluid simulation, electronic simulation, etc.

    Cons

    The company is headquartered in east coast, and kind of old-style and lack of incentives to motivate people like what companies in the silicon valley do.

    Advice to Management

    It is better to have a clear incentive plan to motivate employees, and also clear company organization hierarchy and title system to put right people at right place.

    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

    According to my bank statements, they pay me. Additionally, I occasionally get to take a day off.

    Cons

    Lots and lots of bureaucratic nonsense. You are nothing more than a body to do a job. They expect loyalty, but give none. You can work your butt off and get nothing, but you enter AM instead of PM on an expense report and you get written up.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as part of the solution to a problem and not as the problem.
