I have been working at Synopsys

Pros

-Stable
-good working environment
-Free coffee

Cons

-they encourage employees to grow within company but when i applied for a position they did not even gave me a chance for an interview. how can we suppose to grow within when they don't even gave us a fair chance?
-highly politicized company. it's mostly who they know and not what they know.
-Overkill process driven that it's becoming more as a "Red Tape"
-you can't exercise your decision making skill even on minute matters.
-Campus too many speed bumps

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Pls follow Abraham Maslow's "Hierarchy of Needs". That's all we need.

    Current Employee - Application Engineer in Mountain View, CA
    Current Employee - Application Engineer in Mountain View, CA

    I have been working at Synopsys

    Pros

    Everything is about the customer and their needs, which guides management in the right direction
    Integrity is valued by management if not always practiced
    Great co-workers
    Good work/life balance
    Encouraged to learn new technologies and methodologies

    Cons

    It is a conservative company and isn't willing to invest in development of new technologies and projects. New technology is aquired, not developed. So R&D does a lot of integration and maintenance.
    Middle management is comfortable and slow moving. They are more interested in process and maintaning the status quo instead of driving new initiatives or thinking stratigically.
    There are few or very restricted opportunities for advancement. (Management entrenched)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a chance on more aggressive in-house development. Don't just buy all your new technology
    For the rolling layoffs, don't just target individual contributers. The company would be just fine with fewer VPs and Directors
