Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Sunnyvale, CA

Pros

Solid financial performance in a negative environment
OK work hours for a high tech firm
Market leader
Some nice people

Cons

Career paths do not appear to exist at Synopsys, there's little career progression, and the opportunities for professional growth seem highly limited.

Advice to Management

If the economy picks up, Synopsys managers will need to look for ways to retain good people. Right now, there aren't enough carrots--rewards such as raises, educational opportunities, career paths--which can create a very discouraging work environment. It shouldn't be necessary for people to get job offers elsewhere to negotiate being more valued by their company.
