    I have been working at Cadence Design Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people that work at Cadence are fantastic and the work environment is good. Lip Bu has been doing a great job as the CEO.

    Cons

    Somewhat political. Layoffs in bad times, layoffs in good times, layoffs are a part of life at Cadence. It's unfortunate that they kick good talent to the curb without seeing if they could transfer internally.

    Pros

    There are lots of new technology developed and training are more systematic. Since I worked for Cadence before, I can get familiar with enverioment very quickly.

    Cons

    Need to rejust my role from previously working with R&D to now more dealing with customers. So the function has shift from technical orientated to soft skill orientated.
