Current Employee - Senior Staff R&D Engineer in Mountain View, CA

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

Pros

Benefits are pretty good, though they are now in downward trend for last few years.
You get to work on real high-tech and challening stuff and get to see technology trends and ideas which will be in consumer hands few years from now.
Company focused on stock price growth, let's see how it works out.

Cons

Company is becoming very miserly and stingy. 1% raises (after 3 years of freeze) on the year where we beat our goals and revenue targets handsomely shows where the focus is (yeah,, top guys get the cream).
25 years celeberation: a few glasses of wine, cheap party-hats and glasses from orientaltradingcompany.com !
Very top-heavy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start focusing on employess, and their needs.

    Pros

    Stable working environment. Bonus is guaranteed. Company is successful in its field. better than average salary.

    Cons

    Not much room to grow. Upper management is stagnant. You have to work with twenty year old code. After some time, you do not learn new stuff.
