I worked at Mentor Graphics full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Of course this depends on your manager and work team but overall I felt Mentor's work environment was great on product development side. It had just the right amount of stress level to keep things interesting and not too much to be overwhelming. I worked with some great coworkers who were committed to delivering quality products and we worked well in an agile environment.
Pay was fair to good, but had been really lean to non-existent in the last 4-5 years. There is convenient access to top-rated Child Development Center if your kids are young. Great access to the Gym, weight room, classes like yoga, pilates, strength training,etc.

Cons

Not a well-defined growth path for QA.
