    I have been working at Mentor Graphics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Very little to no micro managing (don't abuse it!). - Interesting projects for those hoping to apply what they learned in school. - Easy to get a hold of upper management. - Good transparency (monthly and quarterly meetings). - Lots of free food. - Company gym. - Flex time off.

    Cons

    None really. If you're having issues you're probably hindering yourself. Work hard, be assertive, and you'll get far!

  5. "Staff Engineer"

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      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.

        I worked at Mentor Graphics full-time for more than 9 years

        Pros

        Talented team with a broad EDA product set.

        Cons

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

        Advice to Management

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

        I have been working at Mentor Graphics full-time for more than 4 years

        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.
