Pros

Synopsys employees are smart and intellegent. It provides environment that allows for driven individuals to excel. The senior management is well respected in the industry and are fantasticlly motivational leaders. The company is stable and has weathered the ups and down of the valley with remarkable consistancy. Employees are treated with respect and promotion from within is encouraged.

The rateable license model has setup Synopsys such that 90% of the revenue is booked before the quarter has started, making the business extremely stable and predictable

Cons

The limited market landscape of the EDA limits high growth of stock. Bascially there a few companies trying for slices of the same pie which shows the long term growth of the stock

Advice to Management

Look for different areas to diversify and leverage core tallents in other arenas

    Pros

    Calm and measured atmosphere; good people, stimulating work, and great benefits! The place is proof that A players aren't always cutthroat, type-A jerks. Very friendly folks, if a bit staid. It also pays very well in an industry, Electronic Design Automation, known for paying pretty well

    Cons

    Very conservative - "consensus driven to a fault" is almost a motto. Many have left to do their own startups in order to advance an idea that that was too "risky" - having sai that , the model seem to be successful, but it may not be for everybody, especially if you are Type-A personality!

    Advice to Management

    Most things are very good - take more (well-informed) risks!

    Pros

    Good compensation, brilliant people, a technology leader, a chance to be at the cutting edge of electronic design. Since almost every chip that's produced uses Synopsys software, Synopsys engineers are exposed to tomorrow's problems today. The culture treats employees with respect, and people have the flexibility to get the job done as they see fit. Management is clueful for the most part.

    Cons

    EDA is a tough industry, with limited opportunities for growth. People are being asked to do more with less, pretty much everywhere, and expansion is mainly in the less expensive locations like India and China. Some parts of the company take "customer focused" to a fault, shifting resources to fight fires to the point where it's tough to complete projects.

    Advice to Management

    I think they're doing the best they can in a tough market. There isn't as much internal communication about tough issues as there was in years past, it would be nice to have that back.
