Employees pay a high price for the success of Synopsys - work/life balance is not even an option!

Marketing Manager (Former Employee)
Mountain View, CA

I worked at Synopsys full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood initial salary, bonus, benefits, vacation
Evolving technology
Well respected company
Supportive colleagues to commiserate with to help each other to get through the day.

ConsSalary freezes, bonuses paid according to cronyism; 24/7 workload expected
Middle managers who are out for themselves only!
One on ones are a joke, as managers don't want to hear your questions or feedback, they just want to load on more assignments.
Employees never hear praise or appreciation - only hear about when something is wrong.
There are a lot of two faced people there - especially in middle management.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees with respect and appreciate all that they do to make you successful!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
