    Pros

    Amazing company and good exposure! Very friendly people. Lots of opportunities available and great connections made. Very open to youth and young/creative ideas

    Cons

    No formal intern program for marketing (at the time). If you don't ask for more work or opportunities you won't receive it. But they are very open and welcoming once you ask them. They love young people in the office as most of the people in the office are older

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Rewarding work, Outstanding benefits and salary. Top tier product line. The management cares about it's employees and has developed a work environment that fosters inovation and free thinking. Management is always open to new ideas from employees.

    Cons

    There is a sense among employees of yearly impending doom. The belief is that your position is only secure for a one year period that ends just before the annual corporate meetings. I often heard it said "Well I got my ticket to the meeting so I must be safe for the next year".

    Advice to Management

    While my tenure at Synopsys was the highlight of my 25+ year career in semiconductor/eda arena, I would suggest to management that they work on developing a sense of security about an employee's position.
