I have been working at Synopsys full-time

Pros

- Good work-life balance
- Good benefits
- Visionary CEO (... but is losing charm slowly).

Cons

- Company is not growing as such. Growth in earning is purely by acquiring new companies.
- No company growth => No career growth.
- Too much people stuck at mid-level so not much room for growth.
- Poor mid-level management.
- 401(k) matching is $1500/year.

Advice to Management

Fix your mid-level management, they will ruin a great company.
