Poor management especially mid level managers
less growth opportunity.

Mid level managers are lots of time biased. Please pay attention to the jobs delivered by your employee rather than from where they belong to and who they are!

    Pros

    One of the leading EDA company.
    Chance to move around and get exposed to different areas.
    Some good people to work with within the company.
    Some good customers to work with.
    First to come up with solution for new features and try it out.

    Cons

    Internal politics at manager level and above.
    Too many overhead because of the politics.
    Only few people are actually working and making the difference.
    Recognition is not given to the right people because of politics and internal relations.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the politics. Make sure everyone works with the same goal to improve the products as a whole solution rather than individual product to grow the company.

    Pros

    I cannot really find the good reasons to work at Cadence. If you dont find anything else then Cadence is the best option

    Cons

    Less Salary, Working over the weekends and at nite is a normal affair. Manager doesnot know what is going on.

    Advice to Management

    Dont make frequent organizational changes. Dont announce customer before they sign-up to use the tools. Re-instate ESPP in its full effect.
