    I worked at Cadence Design Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great place to learn and grow. Great compensation. I enjoyed all of the cross-functional teamwork. I liked the "do the right thing" mentality.

    Cons

    Can be poor work-life balance at times. Cadence always expects you to be on the clock when needed. Need more proactivity when contracts are not up for renewal.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to be as loyal to your employees as your employees are loyal to you.

    Pros

    Stable job. Great benefits! Good leadership team now.

    Cons

    Nothing new going on in the EDA side.

    Advice to Management

    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.
