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.

    Pros

    Used to be major EDA leader, currently a shadow of current leader, Synopysy.

    Cons

    Employees are not seen as a vital resource, just workers on a production line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on your employees as your most powerful resource.

    Pros

    Great people throughout the organization that are fun to work with. Global company of over 5,000 employees offers you the opportunity to find a site that fits your needs. Customer focused Sales and R&D teams allow you the chance to interact with customers on all types of projects. Company is full of diverse groups and roles available from hardware or IP design, design services, sales, sales support, marketing, R&D or operations in the electronic software and hardware design industry.

    Cons

    Company training programs and IT are not as strong as they once were. Not a company on a rapid market climb with stock performance up and down over any year in the past 5, but the stock is looking strong over the past 5 years. Searching for its culture that was lost.
