    Pros

    Fairly good benefits and salary and working conditions.

    Cons

    The whole industry is going nowhere. Upper management more interested in protecting themselves than making the hard choices they're paid for. They talk a good game, but the results of the business tell a different story. No opportunities to advance and little opportunity to even move around in the company to keep things fresh.

    Advice to Management

    Wally and Greg know that they should merge the company with Cadence or Synopsys, they just don't want to lose their jobs so they don't. Wally's been CEO for 20 years with nothing really to show for it.

    Pros

    Good benefits, family friendly company

    Cons

    Political, not a market leader in most product areas

    Advice to Management

    Figure out where Mentor can be excellent, and go for it rather than being #3 in multiple markets
