I have been working at Mentor Graphics full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

-Lots of good people in the company, but it will depend on the team.
-Very flexible work environment. Culture is very relaxed and no one is counting the clock....you're just entrusted to get your job done.

Cons

-Not a lot of new blood which means not many new ideas. People stick around for a long time at Mentor....you need a balance of new folks with fresh thoughts and people that have been around while.
-No career growth paths that I've seen anywhere. People get a job and there is no advancement. Can be very frustrating if you're ambitious.
-Everything is silo'd into divisions with really no communication across divisions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide opportunities for employees to explore career paths outside of their current role. Encourage collaboration between the different product lines and divisions. People want to create amazing/great products and sell them. There is talent in Mentor....enable it!
