Mediocrity and unrestrained personal ambitions rule

Technical Services Engineer (Current Employee)
Lebanon, NH

I have been working at ANSYS

ProsIn the initial stages of your career it is a good environment where you are exposed to different technologies and industries, can learn much about different simulation tools.

ConsEspecially after the 2009 layoffs there has been a top-heavy structure: many managers from a legacy organization with very little restraint imposed on their personal management styles and ambitions. A lot of work is expected from engineers and quite often not appreciated or recognized. Unreasonable requests are put on employees when office doors are closed. Many political games driven by personal ambition and personal preferences are being played. Rather than focusing on growing as a company, several managers are worried about their visibility and undermining other managers' positions. There is some sort of an intimidating atmosphere depending who your boss is so that you do not feel to express honest concerns. As a matter of fact, there is not even an HR person in the Lebanon office!

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management could be more active and in contact with engineers. HR too could perform a survey and see if/how/why employees are not satisfied. It would help to the company long-term growth and soundness to remove some over-ambitious managers who make a lot of smoke using a lot of the company resources for self-promotion. Career counseling would help too.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
