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

    Pros

    Pay is good. Smart people.

    Cons

    Run like an old-school chip company. Poor communications, poor management. CEO is rarely there. They had a shot with EDA360 and some new products but then abandoned that when the CMO left.

    Advice to Management

    Create better internal communications. Share company vision. Integrate product groups so there is a common goal/vision for success. Foster an atmosphere of collaboration.
