    Pros

    Great employees ready to work with you on projects requiring collaboration. Simulia treats employees well even when they are just summer interns, and if you work with them for multiple years as I did (four consecutive summers) your work builds on itself, becoming more interesting over time.

    Cons

    If you do not like the idea of working for a company that is very corporate, Simulia is probably not for you.

    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 Management

    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 Management

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