I have been working at Synopsys

Pros

Senior management takes a very good long-term view of the company and the industry. They take good responsibility for maintaining the computer infrastructure and the office facilities. Although much of the headcount growth is off-shore, they do not do widespread transfers of jobs from the US to off-shore (as their competitor Cadence was doing around 2004-2009). The company is well-positioned as the biggest EDA company. Employee turnover is much lower than many other Silicon Valley companies.

Cons

Most of the employees are mid-career or senior career. There's not a lot of employees in their 20's.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You're doing a great job: long-term steady planning and growth.

    Pros

    Good technology company with a sound management and leadership at helm. People are
    bright and nice to work with. Most of the time managers are flexible as long as work gets done.

    Cons

    Synopsys and the EDA industry itself is trying to reinvent itself in terms of creating a more profitable business model. Till a more profitable model is invented, growth is going to be an issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to maintain the focus and come up with a viable strategy for stronger growth.

    Pros

    Great culture, great leadership, ethics, technology and strong pay for performance philosophy compared to other EDA and semiconductor companies in the Valley.

    Cons

    Sometimes can be challenging to make big changes, very consensus driven...which is not a bad thing!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognizing that it's not always the higher grade level employees that make the most impact - continue to value all employees and you will continue to build a strong and loyal employee base. Very satisfied overall though.
