If you're below management level, be prepared to have no control

Marketing Program Manager (Current Employee)
Marlborough, MA

I have been working at Mentor Graphics

ProsWork/Life balance
Decent wage
There is really nothing else that can be considered a "Pro" to working for this organization.

ConsPoor management
Poor communication
Too political
Frequent layoffs, no notification
Unless you're in corporate, no benefits to working there
Too bureaucratic to be functional
Disparate systems, logins and PW to get into about 15 different sites
Unqualified IT
Top-heavy
Healthcare is awful
Travel policy
Everyone at corporate has an office but in the field you have to meet certain qualifications
Self-admitted old-boy network

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a look at your GMs and Middle Management. Too political to get things done. Especially SDD, EMA and Webops.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

They have no clue how the world… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
