A place full of talents

Member of Consulting Staff (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

I worked at Cadence Design Systems

Pros- technically challenging work
- fun and flexible work environment
- great compensation
- competent direct management
- good reward systems

Cons- financially not stable. as a consequence, when bad economy hit, employees were laid off
- management overhead is big given the fact that there are (I heard) over 100 VPs

Advice to Senior Management- focus on the technology development
- value your employees as the most precious asset
- cut the management overhead
- be financially wise when do planning

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
