I worked at Mentor Graphics

Pros

Its a great place to work if you want an easy life. You dont have to work hard, your product does not have to succeed.
They'll keep the project alive forever.

They have a great lifestyle company.. DOnt work hard, you will get 1-5% raises each year, and 10% if you do show up.. BUt you will piss off the others, cause you will be considered a show off

Cons

Its boring work. They dont want to win. There is no equity play, since their stock has been absolutely flat and declining over the last 20 years.

Besides calibre, they have no tehcnology leadership. Their PCB group is simply a gorilla by acquistion, but not via technology innovation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start laying off the dead weight. MOve the stock SOMEWHERE..

    Pros

    Mentor provides great benefits. The work environment is very casual. The oganization is spread across in many countries, so people are used to working from home, communicating virtually over the phone, email and/or web. Mentor is a Family friendly company. Unlike many other companies, Mentor gives a maximum of 24 days of Flexible Time off in the US. Senior management are open to talk to any of their employees. Many of the people have lunch with Wally Rhines (CEO) & Greg Hinckley (CFO) in the commons Wilsonville.

    Cons

    EDA industry is a stagnant industry; So you can see the affects of that in Mentor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for building a great company.
