    I have been working at Cadence Design Systems as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The working environment is perfect. The office locates in the forest full with fresh air.

    Cons

    You need to take lunch by yourself because there is no food store near the office. But you don't have to go very far for lunch...

    Everyone looks helpful, as a new hire, i find it very convenient. Office timing is convenient too, I myself face traffic everyday. So it is important for me to have convenient office timing.

    Not so far, but should have fruits and soda free for employees :)

    Pros

    Great benefits for interns, and everybody you meet genuinely wants to meet you and hear about what you are working on.

    Nothing at all besides the commute being long, but that's on me not the company. They even allowed working from home some days which was great.
