    Ad-hoc management, hard work is not recognised

    Current Employee - Senior Staff CAE in Sunnyvale, CA

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

    Pros

    I have been working for Synopsys for 11 years.
    Company has a very good executive management.
    work/life balance is pretty decent

    Cons

    Middle management (especially in the CAE side) is poor and stagnant.
    Most managers are technically competent, but are old school and lack management skills
    Managers (at least in our group) behave very differently with their management versus with their reports. Disagreement is NOT appreciated.
    You have to literally suck up to your manager to be in good books.
    There is not much room for career growth for the CAEs.
    Lack of recognition for good work is prominent in all groups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish a direct channel of communication with individual contributors to get a realistic feedback about the managers

    A sad "Yes Boss" policy in IG CAE Business Unit

    Current Employee - Senior CAE II in Mountain View, CA

    I have been working at Synopsys full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Easy work environment
    Good talent in R&D organization
    If you are a slacker, you dont need to worry in the IG CAE organization (slacking is ignored here)
    Industry leader

    Cons

    Its not surprising that most reviews about the company from Mt View Synopsys are not positive:
    The IG CAE Organization firmly believes in "Yes Boss" policy, if you disagree with the management, you are either doomed or on your own.
    Bonus distribution and career growth is "certainly" not performance based, Bonus amount rather distributed equally among the employees
    Growth potential in IG CAE organization is next to none, also mentioned in other reviews.
    Very little emphasis on quality of work, quantity is appreciated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please get some new blood in IG CAE middle/upper management.
