Pros

Stable company with lot of cash reserves.
Num 1 in the industry.

Cons

Num 1 company does not pay num 1.
Management brings in their buddies as Peers instead of promoting employees.
Management takes credit for all success and does not share to the teams and employees.
Bureaucracy across the board with error resolution being high.
Stock offering is bad. It does not move up. Funny thing, they compare with apple when the market falls but with nothing when market moves up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employees should not be treated as commodities.
Credit and Recognition should be given.
Change the Crying baby gets more chocolates, way of treating.

    Pros

    The avearge person here is broadly smart, has relevant focused expertise and is good to work with. It is rare to find these three together in hi-tech.

    Corporate strategies over last decade have been well thought out and executed towards being the leader in EDA.

    Aart de Geus is a fantastic CEO and really does make one feel 'two inch taller' in any interaction with him.

    Cons

    Growth pace and path are prohibitively slow and employees who value tenure vs. advancement are most likely to stay motivated.

    Despite the strong strategic thinking that has won the company the leadership of EDA space over the last decade, similarly strong strategic thinking isn't obvious regarding the growth in the next 10 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in a limited amount of fresh blood and assign them the task of looking beyond the horizon. That would be a nice way to get out of the EDA-driven thinking about growth.

    Induce a more formal strategic planning approach and make sure that it breaks down the business-unit silos during the preparatory exercises and thought processes.
