    Pros

    Ansys offers cutting edge technology and excellent benefits. They are by far one of the best technology companies in the Pittsburgh area.

    Cons

    Some middle management do not have the proper training that they should to do their jobs properly. Upper management should send them for training.

    Advice to Management

    Send middle management to leadership and management training classes. Some have been promoted from the inside (which is excellent), but they lack the skills that they could easily be taught.

    "Mediocrity and unrestrained personal ambitions rule"

    Pros

    In the initial stages of your career it is a good environment where you are exposed to different technologies and industries, can learn much about different simulation tools.

    Cons

    Especially after the 2009 layoffs there has been a top-heavy structure: many managers from a legacy organization with very little restraint imposed on their personal management styles and ambitions. A lot of work is expected from engineers and quite often not appreciated or recognized. Unreasonable requests are put on employees when office doors are closed. Many political games driven by personal ambition and personal preferences are being played. Rather than focusing on growing as a company, several managers are worried about their visibility and undermining other managers' positions. There is some sort of an intimidating atmosphere depending who your boss is so that you do not feel to express honest concerns. As a matter of fact, there is not even an HR person in the Lebanon office!

    Advice to Management

    Senior management could be more active and in contact with engineers. HR too could perform a survey and see if/how/why employees are not satisfied. It would help to the company long-term growth and soundness to remove some over-ambitious managers who make a lot of smoke using a lot of the company resources for self-promotion. Career counseling would help too.
