    Pros

    Synopsys is a great place to work.
    My co-workers are very help and cooperative and open to ideas and suggestions from others.

    Cons

    The organization that I belong to is very stagnant.
    Also, very little time is available to improve the processes.
    Not much room for career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More time/effort should be put in to discuss career development plans with employees.
    This impacts morale and results in low levels of motivation after a period of time.

    Cons

    Career growth is limited since the company is not growing. Especially if you are part of the some of the more established business units.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should provide appropriate career growth for people. The company is doing well with customers, some of the benefits should show to the employees.
