Other Employee Reviews for Ansoft

    Recommends
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The best reason to join Ansoft is to work with world-class experts in electromagnetism
    R&D engineers have a great autonomy in their work , flexible hours, and benefit from the lack of management skills from the upper management (excepted for the CTO and founder of course)
    Great compensation but will not last with our recent acquisition by ANSYS

    Cons

    Benefits beside compensation are not great in particular no 401k matching
    Very difficult to transfer health benefits to non-married partners (although it's possible in theory)
    Low moral since ANSYS acquisition
     Key Ansoft executives have been let go, the others are mostly busy saving their job rather than showing leadership .

    Advice to Management

    Show leadership
