    Pros

    Stable job. Great benefits! Good leadership team now.

    Cons

    Nothing new going on in the EDA side.

    Be more involved in how the rank-and-file work. Since this is an old field, there are a lot of people who are in the company for a long time. Hence, a lot of bureaucracy and junior people do not get a whole of monitorship.
