Mediocre technology in a country club setting

Technical Marketing (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

I worked at Cadence Design Systems full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat benefits including bonuses & stock options
Most of the customers were great and very interesting
Flexible - but long - working hours.

ConsDevelopment was far from agile and the technology often seemed to lag that of the competitors. Acquired companies seems to be bogged down to the point of frustration and failure.

Words of wisdom from HR upon joining "...we shoot the messengers here. Survivors don't rock the boat ..." says a lot about the culture.

Too many levels of over paid management that didn't deliver. But become a member of the elite club and one can skate along with poor performance for a long period.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
