  2.  

    Constant change, for change's sake, married with a lack of vision.

    I have been working at Cadence Design Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cadence has/had some very bright and hard working employees, who are also good to work with.
    Cadence has made some good, key acquisitions.

    Cons

    R&D: Not much Research going on, and Development is reactionary in the name of 'customer driven'.
    Belief in Heros: Certain people are put in charge of groups or projects, because of close personal ties, or because they made a 'diving catch' once, but these people do not necessarily possess leadership qualities, nor are they nurtured or trained to be leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Measure what you want to improve.
    Be honest with yourself.
    You had better 'lock in' good employees with a staircase of mid term and long term stock options, and CASH otherwise, they will flee to other more vibrant software disciplines.
