I worked at Mentor Graphics

Pros

People are friendly and cooperative. A great campus with on-site cafeteria, gym, basketball court, library, and child care facility. Private offices for everyone, generous vacation time, and good benefits.

Cons

Layoffs happen frequently and are usually handled poorly - everyone finds out through the grapevine but management pretends nothing happened.

    Pros

    good work life balance
    encourages training
    internship program
    beautiful facilities
    individual offices - little or no cubicles
    fast paced enviornment
    diverse work enviornment
    good compensation

    Cons

    lack of employee advocacy through out HR team. All HR issues are left to managers and HR only called in for termination and documentation of disciplinary actions.
    constant changing of strategy within HR team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees do not feel that there is an internal resource to assist them when situations arise. HR should not simply protect the company but successful HR teams can also foster a secure and open door policy through out their divisions.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good work and personal life balance, good work culture and good people to work with.

    Cons

    EDA as a whole is not really a growing industry. Not a exciting industry, but a stable industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice, sorry
