    I have been working at Mentor Graphics

    Pros

    Interesting work, interesting industry. Nice work location, nice on site amenities. Senior management tends to communicate well (though it stops there because nobody else does) Fairly good pay.

    Cons

    slow drip of benefit cutbacks disheartening. Division management NEVER communicates with team. No lateral communication either, a very silo'd workplace. Success of company doesn't seem to translate down to employees.

    Pros

    not micro-managed
    decent pay and benefits
    sr. management genuinely has employees interests in mind
    nice campus in Wilsonville; nice facility in San Jose

    Cons

    can be political (isn't that true everywhere?)
    company is not on a strong growth path. Employee growth suffers as a result. Stagnant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take risks, move into new markets, grow the company. How can you fit into the "new economy"?
    consider better stock options and incentive plans for non-sales employees

    Recommends
    No opinion of CEO
