I have been working at Synopsys full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Safe. A good place to wait for retirement. Core business is growing at 3% and very predictable with the 3 year lease model

Cons

Growth is predominately by acquisition, which leaves little opportunity for career growth. Most of the people I worked with were B and C players: the A players had moved on to more exciting opportunities. Most upper management had been in the same position for more than a decade. There were a lot of silos in the back-office support..

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try organic growth, and improving internal efficiencies.

    I have been working at Synopsys full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very capable upper management with integrity. Installs social value and responsibility into work culture. The company offers growth and opportunity for those are willing to earn it.

    Cons

    Some product group management lacks vision and guts to make the right calls. Play it safe only works when there is no competitor around!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Please provide a guiding hand in the AMSG BU.
