Not a place to grow otherwise a great place to be.

Senior R&D Engineer (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at Synopsys

Pros- Best in EDA
- Excellent senior management. They know where they are going.

Cons- Extremely slow growth. Average promotion after 4 years regardless of quality and dedication to work.
- Due to this mid-level-to-first level management devotes time to promote themselves alone.

Advice to Senior ManagementMost employees look up to CEO Aart De Geus, a man of great vision and integrity, an exceptional leader. Excellent top level management specially top 5-6 people. Mid-to-first level managers must care, spend time with and listen to leaf level people.
