    I worked at Calypto Design Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some great core technology in the high level synthesis and low power optimization areas. Very talented engineering staff that is passionate about their products.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, immature and inexperienced management. Engineering management micro-manages to the lowest levels of the organization. Teams are frustrated because they cannot work on what they know is right for the technology and product.

    Advice to Management

    There is great talent within the organization; let them do their jobs and stop interfering. Start active listening. Let the engineering teams do what they know is right to make the products world class.

    I worked at Calypto Design Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Calypto is a very interactive place to be. My manager and all other colleagues were the finest people I have ever met, work wise and personally. I learnt immensely from all of them. The company had a great atmosphere that allowed the personal and professional growth of every employee.

    Cons

    I can't figure anything negative to write about this company

    I worked at Calypto Design Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was a good company. I got to work on real good problems with good people. Culture was very open and everyone from MD to newest employees used to sit in cubicles.

    Cons

    No cons as such. Unfortunately I think EDA as a field is going down.

    I have been working at Calypto Design Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1) There is a lot of scope for development work as compared to that in other EDA firms.
    2) Some teams have learning sessions to discuss various technologies, designing concepts and languages.
    3) Immediate management appreciates initiatives taken by employees (if they can justify how that would help the team).

    Cons

    1) Higher management is very unstable. There are very frequent changes in organization.
    2) Stricter leave system as compared to other EDA firms. e.g. 2 casual leaves cannot be combined, medical leaves should more than one.
    3) Despite offering some latest technologies, this company haven't been able to set a stable customer base.

    Engineering management micro-manages
