    I have been working at Synopsys full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Safe. A good place to wait for retirement. Core business is growing at 3% and very predictable with the 3 year lease model

    Cons

    Growth is predominately by acquisition, which leaves little opportunity for career growth. Most of the people I worked with were B and C players: the A players had moved on to more exciting opportunities. Most upper management had been in the same position for more than a decade. There were a lot of silos in the back-office support..

    Advice to Management

    Try organic growth, and improving internal efficiencies.
