      Fair pay and perks; Respectful Teams; Great Culture

      Mar 17, 2021 - Redacted for Anonymity in Pittsburgh, PA

      CEO Approval

      Pros

      Fair pay and perks - the Leadership really does go above and beyond to ensure pay for performance; Respectful Teams - everyone is positive, encouraging and willing to help; Great Culture - Inclusiveness is a strong thread; the people value differing opinions as contributing to growth, not a challenge to status quo.

      Cons

      Pre-Covid -> work life balance, but as a result of remote work, we've all become more agile and the Leadership has noticed. They're making it easier for us to find balance.

      Good work culture

      May 4, 2021 - Engineering Co-Op in Canonsburg, PA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good work culture in terms of hours and work definition. Mentors provided to guide co-ops are helpful. The team had great camaraderie. And it is easy to ask questions to those in other teams. HR was friendly and created networking opportunities among the co-ops. Numerous technical seminars helped keep us up to date. Not too many work distractions from the company. Great management. Weekly team meetings and individual meetings. Overall, friendly.

      Cons

      A rotation program would be nice so that graduate level co-ops can try working on different departments/teams, example: User interface team, geometry/meshing team, legal, testing, development, IT, electrical, mechanical, etc.

      Great Company and Values, Difficult but also Fulfilling

      Mar 12, 2021 - Regional Territory Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Ansys is rapidly growing but I have never felt the company is selling out its values. I have had the privilege to work with great managers and see future growth opportunities. You work with a lot of great companies and have the chance to make a significant impact on their products’ successes. I’m grateful for my experience with Ansys and look forward to the future.

      Cons

      Sales upper management tends to have a “What have you done for me lately?” mentality. Some territories are much better than others - especially after the pandemic’s impact. This gives some ample opportunity while others are struggling. Implementation of formal sales tools and trainings have been lacking but it is improving.

      Unfair promotion, poor management

      Pros

      Nice little town to work and live. No traffic jams. Nice colleagues, supportive and knowledgeable. OK payment, good reputation company to work for

      Cons

      Poor management, at least for developers, only these who has good relations with header get promoted. Contributions are less appreciated than flattering, motivation killing. Each department of ANSYS has different cultures, the one in Lebanon has wired atmosphere. Being excellent on flattery makes you successful😂
