    I worked at Mentor Graphics full-time

    Pros

    Good environment for deep technical work in computer science.

    Cons

    You need to be self-driven and define your own career development plans and education. They help with class reimbursement, but not so much with helping you plan.

    Pros

    Talented team with a broad EDA product set.

    Technical nature of the product makes it difficult for non-technical staff to understand at anything other than a superficial level.

    to the acquiring management team - listen to and value the talented staff you have

    Pros

    Good vacation, culture, work life balance

    Cons

    Doesn't seem to be much room for advancement or incentive to do a really good job. Pay is just ok and raises are marginal.

    Advice to Management

    Reward high performing employees more, either through bonuses, stock, or promotion/raises.
