    Pros

    World class upper management with consistent focus on customer satisfaction and core business has made Synopsys the #1 EDA company of the World. The leadership duo of Chi Foon Chan and Art de Geus is a row model for executive teams everywhere as far as operational efficiency, product vision, and high standard of ethics goes.

    Cons

    1) Some middle managers could improve as far as people skills goes.
    2) EDA software architecture paradigm is becoming a bit archane - too focused on (C/C++/Tcl).
    3) EDA as a sector has been stagnant for the past 10 years and has little prospect of growth
    4) Art should expand his guitar musical repertoire :-)

    Pros

    Very positive work place. Very technically driven management team. Industry leader. Wide array of products. Very good work life balance. Good flexibility. Great relationships. Good compensation.

    Cons

    Not very aggressive in terms of product marketing. But this gives the company a technology flavor. Recently a slight change towards cutting costs have had its slight negative impact. Incessant focus on cutting costs have favored aggressive management styles instead of the traditional respectful management attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let not the pursuit of profits change the wonderful employee oriented attitude the company enjoyed for many years.
