    I have been working at Mentor Graphics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    An engineering company that cares about quality and looks to hire competent engineers that are also good people to work with.

    Cons

    Not all managers are created equal; not all teams are as happy as they should be. Look for team culture in addition to corporate culture.

    Advice to Management

    Use exit interviews to identify teams that have opportunity to improve leadership. Do leadership training when you promote someone to management, such as from development. Many also have great personalities and a knack for leadership... not all.

    I worked at Mentor Graphics as an intern

    Pros

    Great company with good coworkers, team communicated and met frequently to discuss project status. As an intern I was still included in all of this even as I learned the ropes.

    Cons

    The office cubicles for interns are sort of out of the way, felt isolated as I worked.
