Stumbled in 2008, crawling, walking, still not running

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

ProsThere 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 ....

ConsThere 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 Senior ManagementUnless 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
