    Pros

    Good Campus, Average Salary and nice location.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional, for interview they had recent graduates judging you and one of the girl was talking and laughing during presentation interview (distracting) and was extremely insensitive and unprofessional whereas the higher management was sitting with an angry straight face.! You might be wondering why are you even presenting.! No smiles !!

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Mentor Graphics full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Nice environment
    - Good work-life balance
    - Flexible hours

    Cons

    - Lack of diversity in teams, many biased managers who hires majority of team members from his home-country (HR is not really paying much attention to that, specially Fremont office).
    - A lot of uncertainties after Siemens acquisition, and very poor communication about the acquisition.
    - Salaries are below market rates, not very competitive benefits.

    Advice to Management

    - HR has to pay more attention to teams diversity, It’s very healthy to have diversity maintained in teams.
    - Be more transparent about the acquisition, and what is happening behind the scenes.
    - Align salaries to market ranges, and enhace benefits (especially health insurance).
