    I worked at Synopsys full-time

    Pros

    Great colleagues and open culture where honest debate is encouraged.

    Cons

    G&A functions are understaffed as part of overall cost containment. Business processes should be improved to streamline work and free up cycles

    Advice to Management

    Invest in developing manager capability. Too many people have people management responsibility without proper development and feedback.
