    I worked at Synopsys

    Pros

    Good benefit package and bonus program, good location and facilities, challenging work for the right people in the right departments.

    Cons

    Very slow to make technical changes internally, can be very autocratic and non collaborative, questioning decisions often frowned upon by upper management. Very fiscally conservative, huge amounts of cash in reserve and healthy business but unwilling to give raises over the past three years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to employees, encourage collaboration, frown upon decisions made just because some VP's reputation is on the line, don't boast about earnings and new business and then announce shut downs, lay offs and no salary increases.

    I have been working at Synopsys

    Pros

    Low risk, a safe place in terms of layoffs and based on the revenue model, they are going to be alright, even if there is another recession.

    Cons

    Things move very slow; not too efficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish the middle management had passion of Aart and Chi .
