I have been working at Cadence Design Systems full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Good infrastructure and great culture. You can get plenty of resources to enhance your skills. Processes are laid down clearly and followed as well. Every individual is treated with respect and there is equality. Recognition of work is done appropriately.

Cons

In some areas, the "aggression" is missing, which can lead to complacency. Budgets are extremely tight generally, and this can be stifling in many respects. Salaries used to be ahead of the industry at one time, but that is no longer true.

    I worked at Cadence Design Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    'you are special' feeling given to employees
    competitive salaries
    Fairly good quality of work and work ownership

    Cons

    In the end, still a mulit-national corp born and brought up in North America and living a second cousin life elsewhere
    Business process still a weight on innovation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put a start-up spin to the setup
    Diversify/rediscover to minimize risk due to legacy 'machinery'

    I worked at Cadence Design Systems for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Cadence pays well in Industry- for very mundane work.
    Cadence gives excellent stock options and health benefits.
    Office locations are good and facilities are excellent in house.

    Cons

    Cadence patent committees are very poorly organized- better to file patents once
    once leaves Cadence.
    Line Managers rarely know what type of work is coming down the line.
    Cadence experience is not at all very valuable in other companies- it is mostly customer
    support and engagements and will teach you nothing other than tool skills.
    Cadence is very unsupportive of employees trying to study even on their own time.
    Stock price has been below $20 for 4 years - no chance of recovery. Far trails the
    industry peers in perception.
