    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Sunnyvale, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Sunnyvale, CA
    No opinion of CEO

    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.
