Pros

a stable company of reasonable size, benefit is also reasonable. It's a area requires special expertises so less people qualifies. It's not easy to get qualified people.

Cons

internal politics are heavy. middle level managers are not that good. And senior management knows nothing technical. There is no technical innovation possible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should focus more on technologies, not politics for their own goods. Competition is heavy in this area and requires constant innovation.

    Pros

    Chance to work on cutting edge technologies and be on the forefront of the latest developments in the electronics and semiconductor world.
    Challenge and variety and opportunities to innovate.

    Cons

    Small and limited options within Electronic Design Automation industry in terms of companies. Very few startups lately. No significant growth in the EDA space in the last decade.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the business model and push for a model that supports profit-sharing or royalty for electronics or products created using Cadence Software.
