    I have been working at Cadence Design Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work-life balance is excellent! Just got even better with "Flexible Vacation Time". No set vacation balance. Done on a professional basis where we arrange time off with our manager and our team.

    Cons

    I'm not sure of any at this point. I've been here 4 years now, and I've very satisfied with my co-workers, my supervisors; the teams I interact with, the level of responsibility I've been given, the availability of expert assistance when needed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Communication is key, and you've done a great job with it. Transparency is very much appreciated and noticed. Driving excellence and expecting it is what you do, and we appreciate it!

    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.
