At Mentor Graphics, our software products are on the cutting edge, and our Benefits programs are, too. Of course we have great health and income protection plans. It's our innovative approach to employee stock purchase, our adoption benefit, and many other programs that really set us apart.

Mentor's benefit programs vary with the locations where Mentor people work so they’re competitive with local markets. All are aimed at making it easier to enjoy your work and life.

Our Cororate office in Wilsonville has it's own on site Child Development Center for children 6 weeks to 5 years old

Adoption Benefit Program

Designed to help offset the costs of adopting a child, the program reimburses 100% of all eligible legal, medical, and agency fees related to the adoption, up to $5,000.

 

Flexible Time Off (FTO)

In addition to the paid holidays for your work location, you’ll receive 24 days of paid time off to use at your discretion, beginning with the first year of employment. Employees accrue two days of paid time off per month until their accrual reaches 80 hours, encouraging employees to take much needed time off throughout the year.


Pre-paid Legal Program

You, your spouse or domestic partner, and your eligible dependents can elect to receive a wide range of legal services from experienced attorneys at a low semimonthly rate.



Historically, Mentor Graphics has had a strong corporate commitment to the community. We provide our employees with a variety of avenues for community involvement.

Mentor Graphics Foundation

Mentor Graphics donates one percent of its yearly profits to the Mentor Graphics Foundation. The Foundation was established to ensure the communities within which we live and work gain from our presence. The Mentor Graphics Foundation has two programs to support the development of quality education programs for our U.S. employees and their families.

Matching Gift Program

The Mentor Graphics Foundation will match employee donations up to $500 per year to the charity of your choice.

K-12 Volunteer Grant Program

This program is designed to support our employees' involvement in School to Work activities and K-12 education. For the first 100 hours MGC employees spend volunteering in a school, the Foundation will grant the school $500. Every additional 20 hours earns another $100.

School to Work Activities

Continually striving to be an excellent corporate citizen, Mentor Graphics has a strong link with the public education system. As a technology company, we value public education believing that the success of Mentor Graphics and the education community are linked.

 

 

Higher Education

Mentor Graphics strives to develop long term relationships with engineering colleges and universities around the world because we believe the success of the electronics industry is dependent upon highly skilled engineers.
