Pros

Synopsys is a very ethical company and treats employees and customers well for the most part. The pay scales are quite good and the work environment is very engineering driven, which is a huge plus for R&D Engineers and CAEs. There are lots opportunities to grow and become a technical expert in your chosen areas of expertise. Politics is quite minimal compared to other mid to large size companies.

Cons

The EDA industry is quite mature and opportunities for growth in the industry have to be quite conservative. So if you prefer being in a high growth industry this may not be your cup of tea.

Advice to Management

Keep adding value for our Customers and taking market share from our competitors. Synopsys is doing a great job with internal innovation and we should continue to push to become the market leader, not just in terms of market cap but also revenues and profitability.

    Pros

    Nice culture; dynamic, non-monotonous engineering work; open communication; fiscally conservative stable company; EDA market leader; right company size, employees still have a name, not just a number

    Cons

    Slow industry and company growth specially in US sites, senior most positions filled from outside or relocations from international sites rather than promotions from within, no yearly cost of living salary adjustments, no yearly stock awards

    Advice to Management

    Continue employee retention practices even during tough times, promote from within in US sites.
