    Pros

    Excellent benefits (fully-paid maternity leave, jury duty, etc.), very family-friendly
    Upper management seems truly to care about all employees
    CEO has high integrity, a rarity in the EDA industry

    Cons

    Acquisitions and the resultant "culture shock" not always handled efficiently
    Not enough accountability for middle management
    I once tried to navigate an internal transfer to Switzerland but the associated HR office was located in Germany and had no clue about Swiss laws and policies

    Advice to Management

    Better integration of global sites, require better accountability for middle management

    Pros

    Synopsys is a very ethical company and treats employees and customers well for the most part. The pay scales are quite good and the work environment is very engineering driven, which is a huge plus for R&D Engineers and CAEs. There are lots opportunities to grow and become a technical expert in your chosen areas of expertise. Politics is quite minimal compared to other mid to large size companies.

    Cons

    The EDA industry is quite mature and opportunities for growth in the industry have to be quite conservative. So if you prefer being in a high growth industry this may not be your cup of tea.

    Advice to Management

    Keep adding value for our Customers and taking market share from our competitors. Synopsys is doing a great job with internal innovation and we should continue to push to become the market leader, not just in terms of market cap but also revenues and profitability.
