    I have been working at Simulia

    Pros

    Bright, enthusiastic people. Flagship product, Abaqus, is fantastic. Expanding in exciting directions.

    Cons

    Grand vision of Dassault Systemes, the parent company, stretches the resources of Simulia.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let the demands of DS trump our core values around technical leadership and quality

    I have been working at Simulia

    Pros

    Good people but leaving company due to policies. Work life balance, and decent time off. It is still a good simulation technology.

    Cons

    Bad compensation and declining benefits, many good people leaving due to stagnation and less recognition of difficult work done by employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should improve compensation and benefits, should recognize that the work is difficult. Should focus more on core competency.

    Pros

    Super smart and motivated colleagues, exciting technology, potential for helping customers do their work dramatically better, good collaboration.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy is getting worse and more stifling every year. Corporate politics hamper innovation. Benefits are just ok.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delegate decision making. Reward collaboration rather than competition. Improve communication.

    I have been working at Simulia full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Stable work life balance
    - Nothing much challenging

    Cons

    - They give you job title as "Manager" but you will not mange anyone ...even not self!!
    - Salary sucks
    - Ever reducing benefits; every year you need to pay more & more out of pocket for insurance
    - Reduced bonus component

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - As Operating margin & Profit increasing - salary should be compensated
    - Get proper feedback from bottom (employee - not middle manager) & act also
    - Stop GPTW survey & act what already communicated

    I have been working at Simulia full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very dynamic, forward thinking company that provides great salaries and a good work-life balance. Although the office culture can be a feel a bit "stiff" at times, the overall feel on a day-to-day basis is quite fast-paced and fun.

    Cons

    Difficult to sustain the pace/workload that managment seems to thrive on. Sometimes it was hard to see the real direction for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try being a bit more explicit in the directions that are being set, and the expected outcomes

    I worked at Simulia as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly people, very flexible work time and great work culture. This company will definitely keep your sports interests alive. Many activities and knowledgeable seminars always going on.

    Cons

    Now since I haven't found any cons inside the company so I would say the location is not a great one. Also there is no cafeteria inside the company. But they are moving to a new campus in sometime September 2014 and the new campus has all the facilities.
