    Management will work with you on what you want. Flexible for employee's needs.

    Pros

    Great environment. Every one is helpful. You have an opportunity to learn a lot of things, also get to know about real projects. Great experience.

    Cons

    Finding housing for interns is a really hard work, since the houses are really expensive and they get more expensive for short term leases.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if some housing options for interns could be provided.

    Pros

    They pay well if you perform

    Cons

    The company hasn't grown in real terms in the last 10 years. The CEO is more focused on running his VC firm than what is supposed to be his full time job at Cadence.

    Advice to Management

    Get creative, grow the business instead of simply trying to optimize it.
