    Pros

    Cadence is at the forefront of innovation in the EDA space - executives are accessible, down to earth and highly engaged in driving the business. Communiation is extremely open and the culture is results driven. Tremendous opportunity to take on exciting work and make an impact. One thing that struck me when I first joined is how much employees really enjoy working together. They are working hard but are having fun while they do it. There's also good work-life balance and support for employees.

    Cons

    The industry is having challenges and Cadence is responding but will have to continue to innovate and be strategic to overcome the macro environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on culture. Rebuild in areas that dropped during the downturn - development programs, community philanthropy programs, etc.

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay is about it.

    Cons

    Employees are not valued. IT senior leadership is too political and treats employees disgracefully.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slash and burn is not a viable strategy.
