I have been working at Synopsys

Pros

Synopsys employees are smart and intellegent. It provides environment that allows for driven individuals to excel. The senior management is well respected in the industry and are fantasticlly motivational leaders. The company is stable and has weathered the ups and down of the valley with remarkable consistancy. Employees are treated with respect and promotion from within is encouraged.

The rateable license model has setup Synopsys such that 90% of the revenue is booked before the quarter has started, making the business extremely stable and predictable

Cons

The limited market landscape of the EDA limits high growth of stock. Bascially there a few companies trying for slices of the same pie which shows the long term growth of the stock

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look for different areas to diversify and leverage core tallents in other arenas

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    Good compensation, brilliant people, a technology leader, a chance to be at the cutting edge of electronic design. Since almost every chip that's produced uses Synopsys software, Synopsys engineers are exposed to tomorrow's problems today. The culture treats employees with respect, and people have the flexibility to get the job done as they see fit. Management is clueful for the most part.

    Cons

    EDA is a tough industry, with limited opportunities for growth. People are being asked to do more with less, pretty much everywhere, and expansion is mainly in the less expensive locations like India and China. Some parts of the company take "customer focused" to a fault, shifting resources to fight fires to the point where it's tough to complete projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think they're doing the best they can in a tough market. There isn't as much internal communication about tough issues as there was in years past, it would be nice to have that back.
