Current Employee - Technical Marketing Engineer in San Jose, CA

I have been working at Mentor Graphics full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Stable job, great benefits. Good working environment and people in the team. Great sale force

Cons

Average to worse R&D.. Stagnate salary, small raise no room to grow, no new opportunities. Somewhat lazy working environment, Technology moving slowly and not listening to customer demand and hang on to old style of code writing. Unwilling to change and cooperate to other product lines within the same company to keep on the competitive edge.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be a bit more aggressive on R&D in Wilsonville who thinks they are god and can do anything such as ignoring customers not fixing bugs and not working on new product.

    Stifling - too many "stayers" at this company

    Pros

    Mentor provides a generous work environment, great pay and benefits. The job accommodates a healthy life outside work. Our group volunteers time to food banks and other good causes - a nice gesture.

    Cons

    Bloated organization, complacent business culture, management is full of bluster. Many employees here are "stayers" whose goal is navigating the politics necessary to reach retirement. Many people work unproductive jobs and take advantage of a generous corporate culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're lucky Carl Icahn has grown passive in his old age.
