    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Cadence Design Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The CEO is trying hard. Lots of experience within the company.

    Cons

    Company has the inability to embrace and develop new technology from within. Lot's of resources used within the company used to develop technology that will not help customers or the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Coming from the development side of the company, management needs move away from technology and practices from the 70's and 80's and embrace modern tools and methodologies. I would suggest removing the whole middle level management and replacing them with people who can implement new ideas so the company can move into the current decade.

    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 Management

    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.
