I worked at Mentor Graphics full-time (More than 3 years)

- supports personal development.
- IT very responsive and efficient.

Advice to Management

Need to be more rigorous about market requirements, replace the old development staff if necessary to implement those requirements.

    I have been working at Mentor Graphics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work / Life balance is great. The company culture is very relaxed and flexible. They value the freedom of the employee. Benefits are decent for a mid-size company with not so much growth.

    Cons

    In Mentor, moving up the corporate ladder is difficult, not too many opportunities to grow/move to the management level. People tend to stay for long periods in the company, so the older folks who are managers remain so!

    I have been working at Mentor Graphics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    exciting training opportunities, good management, less work pressure and stress, lots of exposure to the company, young team, entry level job so not that difficult, suited more for fresh undergraduate students, growth opportunities within the company

    Cons

    more of a marketing job, no technical work at all, more of a telemarketer job, can be monotonous, need to meet daily phone call requirements, more people skills required than an average engineering job, no design work at all, takes 2 years to move out to a new position
