    I worked at Cadence Design Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I had a chance over 13 years to work with incredibly talented people for a company that at times was an innovator in EDA. During the better times there was room for growth, challenging projects and the ability to work with customers on cutting edge technology.

    Cons

    During our leadership changes the company suffered from poor morale, constant mergers and acquisitions led to duplication of efforts and re-orgs which were always poorly timed which was unfortunate because I really feel its a great company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The constant re-organizations and changes in direction within IT hurt morale greatly and resulted in several cases of duplication of work.

    I worked at Cadence Design Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great portfolio of products in design automation. Scattered portfolio of IP with uncertain roadmap. Perpetually weak in marketing and strong in sales, more balance is required.

    Cons

    Continually trying to find the path towards building growth in an industry with little real growth over the last 15 years. Software platforms are improving in strength. Internal operations (IT, HR, Finance) have been weakened by repeated reductions and need a refresh.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your relationship to your customers and find partnerships that bring value to both vendor and customer.
