    I have been working at Cadence Design Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The CEO has turned Cadence around in the past 4 years in business growth, company culture and competitiveness in the market place. The culture is such that I look forward to go to work.

    Cons

    The senior.and middle management ( practically all male except for the HR branch and some sales execs.) do not recognize women force talent. Cadence needs to move to the modern era and recognize that women can do the technology centric jobs just as well.

    Advice to Management

    Create an awareness and train the male workforce, from Senior management, middle management and the individual contributor level, about the value of diversity and put in place a program that recognizes contributions and communicates that female product marketing, R&D and product engineers ...etc. are an important and necessary part of the Cadence talent pool. They should be given equal opportunity for career growth and to contribute towards making a difference in the Cadence's innovation and business growth. Put in place an objective career growth path. The current process for career growth is ad hoc and very subjective.
