Meetings could be scheduled with more advanced notice,
More information shared with others about upcoming projects,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Assign a team player, as the project lead, to conduct working meetings,
with other members of the project, to get assistance when needed.
Keeping everyone up to date with all changes and requirements.
With updated versions of the tool sets and the challenging technologies,
not one person on the team can know it all, but together it can be done.
This creates good communication between team players.

    I have been working at Synapse Design Automation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have been with Synapse Design for over a year now, and have been enjoying
    from both technical and people aspects. I used to work at big companies before,
    and this is my first small company that made my eyes open.

    We have caring and attentive management team (both middle and upper)
    who has open ears, and always there to help.
    They are flexible, and caring I found out.

    We have quite experienced and sharp technical engineering team,
    (front-end, verification, dft, and Physical Design, of course)
    who's mission is always customer success.

    We have helping support staff, who makes our days always bright.

    I am having great time here.

    Cons

    vacation time seems to be too short ?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up, and Thank You
