Pros

Hard-driving company doing what it takes to be a leader in a competitive, flat, industry
Challenge their people, pay well with a great bonus and generous time off.
Always stretching for what can be accomplished
Aart's charisma

Cons

Very competitive business means short term projects with aggressive schedules to meet customer needs. Always a get it done focus can mean sloppy work.
Tough company for emerging technologies, must have key account driving technology in order to maintain investment > 2 years.
Upper layers of management are impenetrable
The center of the universe is in Mtn. View
High pressure, long hours
Yearly layoffs keep the workforce mostly young

    Pros

    Work environment and culture: One of the main reasons is the work environment and organizational culture. They cite that their cultures and work environments are unique and unlike others in which they have worked.
    Challenging and meaningful work: they love what they do and find their work to be challenging, meaningful, and intrinsically rewarding. They are continually challenged in their responsibilities, and offered the opportunity to work on new projects and tasks and in a variety of areas.

    Cons

    The primary disadvantage is the employee's lack of access to the workplace, supervisors, coworkers, and even customers. If a person's work is improved through the physical presence of the employee in the workplace, it may not be advisable to institute telecommuting. A second major concern with telecommuting is the inability to supervise the remote worker. While many employees are not allowed to telecommute until they have a record of effective performance in the workplace, performance problems resulting from a lack of supervision may arise in some cases.

    Pros

    Good company, treats employees well. Stable if not

    Cons

    Good company, flexible work hrs, encourages taking time off and balancing work with life. As with EDA sector, flat growth, which also means fewer surprises. Very good place if you are in hardware / electronic design; leader in EDA tools. Senior management is excellent in execution & leading the company
