I have been working at Cadence Design Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

A lot of passionate engineers, competitive compensation, and flexible work time. The company has the whole EDA platform, and solutions, so you can build up what ever you can imaginate in EDA products.

Cons

Need a lot of energy to work cross teams, because it's large company with global distribution, and different cultures you have to get used to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need more training for junior engineer, especially the production flow, it takes long time for new employee to understand the product release cycle and what team needs to response to which part.

    Pros

    CEO tries hard. Lots of improvement from Fister days but still a long way to go.
    Great opportunities to grow if in strong business unit and caring manager.

    Cons

    Management do not care about people, only care about looking good.
    Not about how good you are technically, all about who you know and who likes you.
    Focus on results is good but not at any cost... Poor work-life balance, echoed by others.
    If in weak product line, be prepared to be the scape-goat and become a casualty of BU agenda.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to truly listen, otherwise most people may not be able to perform nor stick around.
