I have been working at Cadence Design Systems full-time for 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.

    Slash and burn is not a viable strategy.
