    Embedded division dying

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Mobile, AL

    Prosgood pay for Mobile area

    Constoo many to list. New GM is a hachet man, has run off most of the folks that built the division. Ones he brought in have left. Too late getting into Linux and Android, ignored the customer base that built the company, best people leaving in droves. Haven't hit sales quota in forever. Only Mentor's stupidity to keep pumping cash into this failed endeavor keeps the doors open. You'd find better morale in Hell.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange for the sake of change was stupid. I guess you know that now.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Place to Work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Mobile, AL

    ProsThe benefits are great and there is a family atmosphere amongst peers which helps with communication and the learning process. The workers are also very intelligent and friendly.

    ConsThe upper management is disconnected at manly levels. Therefore, there is a lack of direction. If this were resolved Mentor Graphics would be an excellent technology firm to work for, if it wasn't already.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
