    Pros

    Strong leadership. SNPS continues to grow and expand their product lines through R&D and acquisitions. People who work at SNPS stay there for years. They are some of the nicest, most intelligent people I have worked with and we worked well together. Great work life balance.

    Cons

    SNPS is tried and true, reliable, but change takes time as some are set in their way. The culture is supportive to employees and the community, but you won't find start up perks and events here.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more cooperation and equality of the work load between different departments when it comes to projects and company initiatives. Listen to new ideas, try something new, and step out of your comfort zone.

    Pros

    Great visionary founders and exec management. Excellent sales team drives the revenue and creates success. Good Engineering execution.

    Cons

    Not a great place for people. Recognition is capricious, more political than performance based. Seems to be little connection between performance and who gets promoted. Saw many top performers and some very long-term employees let go in favor of lower paid employees.

    Pros

    Stable office culture. An older company, in terms of a technology company. Team works well together. Good work-life fit. Newer office space.

    Cons

    None really. Not too many stresses from my level. Office location is somewhat difficult to get to, not great freeway choices. But company has flexible work arrangements.
