    Pros

    Great people! Sharp and talented people to work with in IT and Engineering.

    Cons

    Budget and priorities are challenging; not unlike other companies...

    Advice to Management

    Leverage your employees talents by asking them and focusing on low hanging fruit.


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

    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 Management

    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.
