Pros

Great culture, great leadership, ethics, technology and strong pay for performance philosophy compared to other EDA and semiconductor companies in the Valley.

Cons

Sometimes can be challenging to make big changes, very consensus driven...which is not a bad thing!

Advice to Management

Recognizing that it's not always the higher grade level employees that make the most impact - continue to value all employees and you will continue to build a strong and loyal employee base. Very satisfied overall though.

    Pros

    Very supportive of local community non-profit efforts. Very friendly staff. Opportunities for growth. Great support from management. Flexible working hours when necessary.

    Cons

    Company has a mandatory shut down two times a year. Only given 18 days of PTO, in which 15 days are used for shutdown.

    Advice to Management

    Great leadership. Company is strong with cash and has flexibility within their market space for additional aquisitions. Synopsys is a true leader in the EDA space.

    Pros

    Upper Management values people and truly aims to make Synopsys a great company. They don't just say it, they mean it. They invest in their people. They require all managers to go through a set of courses called "managing at Synopsys" which is quite good. In the R&D ranks they promote from within and there is a lot of opportunity to grow and continually work on challenging projects. They thrive on innovation. It is a conservative company that offers a great work/life balance. Benefits are outstanding and there bonus program is very good. Systems and processes are very good.

    Cons

    If you are not in R&D the opportunities for growth are limited. If you are in a G&A groups you may be stuck in the same job forever. Because the culture is great, people stay forever and that is not helping the company. Many of those employees are complacent and not contributing much but because they have been there so long, they fly under the radar. If you like working with folks that are okay with being "average" then it's an okay place but if you want to work with A players, it may not be the best place. It is consensus driven company and the right decisions are often not made in that type of environment. Upper Mgt is very distant from reality as there are lots of layers of mgt. It is extremely top heavy with lot of people in Dir/VP level roles that have a great work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    You have created a great culture where employees are valued. Keep up the great work. Take a closer look at the Org structure of some BU's. There are lots of folks in high ranks that are not really contributing. You would get a better return by replacing them with lower level folks that get things done.
