Pros

Good work/life balance; company is profitable and growing; CEO has a vision and has good priorities; decent but not stellar benefits

Cons

EDA is a relatively mature industry and not much new is happening, which makes the job kind of dull at times.

Advice to Management

Improved benefits would be nice. The company offers basic healthcare, 401k matching, ESPP, but other companies provide more and better benefits.
