Former Employee - Automation Intern in San Jose, CA
Former Employee - Automation Intern in San Jose, CA

I worked at Cadence Design Systems as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

I joined here as an intern my manager was very friendly and let me work on different project.

Cons

Suddenly my manager was laid off and I was put under different manager, who showed less interest in assigning any work to me. I would find work for myself after talking to different people around.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have a good well organized program for interns.

    Pros

    There are teams of great people at this company.
    Everyone works very hard.
    Benefits are good. Pay is good.
    CEO means well, has a good heart, but ....

    Cons

    There are political players, building little kingdoms.
    R&D runs the show, and R&D management will say they listen to customers, but the resulting buggy and user-hostile software demonstrates otherwise.
    Personal growth is limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unless there is better balance between the organizations and in what drives the business decisions, you will never catch up to Synopsys.... or be an Apple, ARM, TSMC.
    Continue to improve "deal quality" getting fair pay for products.
    Continue to emphasize quality; add to that usability.
