Current Employee - Staff CAE  in  Mountain View, CA
Current Employee - Staff CAE in Mountain View, CA

Pros

Relatively stable and good work-life balance

Cons

1) Promotion is a secret unless being promoted to management position
2) Low upward mobility due to non-volatile management chain
3) Annual salary increase slightly above inflation but below national average

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Company has doubled in valuation and became industry leader in recent years. Reward your employees accordingly; Understood christmas shutdown was needed during tough economy situation 2-3 years ago; but continuing christmas shutdown when stock is all time high and arguing it's due to employees' request is not ethic.

    Pros

    Stable company with decent pay and smart co-workers. Good work-life balance,

    Cons

    Big company with too many meeting and processes which steal from development time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Purchased companies are swallowed in the Synopsys beast leaving only a shell of the former. There are good people, technologies and ideas still there, and these should be further leveraged for a better ROI on your mergers.

    Current Employee - Corporate Applications Engineer

    Pros

    Flexible work hours. Cutting edge technologies. Fair pay.

    Cons

    difficult to advance, competition is fierce. Lots of acquisitions so the payroll got big that caused to cut budgets right and left. No stock options unless you are a super star or executive/director. Work can get boring at times. Hardly getting a decent pay raise to keep up with inflation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more stock options for incentives. Have a clear management view about how to let people grow in their career.
