    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 5 years)

    Pros

    People are very nice. Very good work life balance. Good perks and bonus. It may not be as fast paced as some of the others but overall a very good place to work. Lot of employees who are with the company for over 10 years.

    Cons

    Not many chances for rapid upward mobility.

    I have been working at Cadence Design Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Stable Company.
    - Great Management.
    - Very friendly, knowledgeable and great people to work with.
    - Very helpful and friendly On-boarding process.
    - 401k plan.
    - Great Cafe and food options(although you have to pay for your own food).
    - Work life balance.

    Cons

    - Little overwhelming initially if you are not familiar with the work.
    - Lack of team outings(if you are into those things).

    Advice to Management

    I had very easy time getting used to the company and management has done a pretty good job of it. I have no complain. Keep up the good work :)

    Pros

    Good facility, cafeteria and benefits. Competitive salary

    Cons

    IT leadership from the CIO down is the worst I have ever seen. They struggle with project execution and management rewards based on relationship status instead of competency. Any employee who openly questions direction is let go and nearly everyone with a strong technical background has moved on or been fired. If you aren't here on an H1 then there is a good chance you are being targeted for termination

    Advice to Management

    Replace IT management
