    I worked at Synopsys

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    The technical work is enjoyable, as are interactions with other technical employees.

    Cons

    Direct management does not manage; they dictate and shout and finger point. There is no team, but rather a manager has several people, each working separately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enforce the stated expectations made of management, rather than allowing satellite locations to be independent and ad-hoc.
