    I worked at Magma Design full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    surrounded by smart people, solving classic hard CS problems, most of them NP-complete, so smart heuristics are invented to solve them. a lot of non-trivial ( i.e. not just a button somewhere ) inventions are made by the company.

    Cons

    very small market that are squeezed by both sides: foundry and semiconductor companies, hence very little growth in terms of business, and translated to little personal growth, even worse is that many Ph.Ds stayed there for long long years, so you need to wait them out to be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    be brave, try to take the pie from the semiconductor companies, even though they are your customers.
