I have been working at Synopsys

Pros

Stable
Work can be interesting and challenging
Very capable and competent peer group-employees and managers are very high quality folks!
Work environment is pretty good. (Not spectacular - we could use a little more "fun" factor)
The bonuses pay pretty well consistently
The company works hard not to manage budgets with constant and deep headcount cuts
Very customer oriented and driven!

Cons

Too conservative about some things; not a risk-taking company; too much of "this is how we've always done it" or " we've already tried that (10 years ago) and it didn't work"
Take too long to make decisions
Lack of growth in the sector is affecting career mobility of younger workers - and there is a lot of very long time employees who are unlikely to leave and try something new

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employees want to hear from Aart and Chi-Foon about the plan to address Global Employee Survey feedback on Rewards and Recognition. Ultimately chosing not to give pay increases while still holding margins and significant cash has many folks feeling a little betrayed after ongoing hard work in very competitive industry.

    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.
