I worked at Cadence Design Systems

Pros

The compensation for individual contributors is generous compared to other high tech companies. Employees are treated well and the benefits package is good. There is a free on-site fitness center offered to all employees.

Cons

Career advancement training opportunities for individual contributors is scarce. The company tends to be top-heavy with management. The executive staff is over-compensated based on company performance. There is a tendency to export US jobs overseas to help the bottom line.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lose some chiefs and hire more indians (but not in India, China, or Russia).
