    I worked at Magma Design

    Pros

    It has very good technology and probably is the only EDA company where you will have opp to learn entire flow from RTL-GDSII and become an expert. Lot of oppurtunities to learn and excel at new technologies

    Cons

    Worst work-life balance with avg pay. Mgmt forgets that you have life and 70hrs workweek is very common ...with immature mgmt and inexperienced folks sitting at top levels , decision making is very skewed and talented employees are rewarded very well. Very artificial praises is the best you can get from mgmt ..with top brass so political and often trying to save their jobs, your credit is taken as theirs...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    with just 600 ppl, please try to encourage non-political free culture and reward your employees well especially support staff...they substitute your tools instability and features...promote only ppl who have experience and maturity ... also if a product is not catching up, please change the R&D architects and you need fresh eyes...
