    I worked at Cadence Design Systems

    Pros

    Many leading-edge products
    Great talent
    Nice building

    Cons

    No communication - how Cadence is going to recover
    Same Board in place that supported Fister/et. al. and their financial-reporting/Buy-Mentor fiascos
    Too many people feeling no home/work balance, just make impossible happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to rebuild presence as market-leader
    Value the talent that is left - they are the key to future success
    Take heed to what other companies discovered about the downside of offshoring

    I worked at Cadence Design Systems

    Pros

    1. Excellent peers
    2. R&D folks are some of the most talented people in the industry
    3. I had sufficient opportunity to lear
    4. As you go higher the perks and compensations are pretty impressive

    Cons

    1. Poor upper management
    2. Sales folk "own" and drive the company (as opposed to the R&D guys)
    3. Lots of internal politics (mostly as a result of (2)). Though it IS possible to avoid it, but hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Decentralize power
    2. Let more R&D folks into upper management positions
    3. More transparency with regards to promotions
    4. REDUCE internal politics! :)
