    Great company to work with

    Analog IC (Former Employee) Mississauga, ON

    ProsStable job with lots of peer support
    corporate structure supports individualism and creativity
    encourages technical competency by reading papers etc
    Managers are generally technically competent and are willing to support employees

    Conscould be more innovative. Management should give out "brainstorming" sessions. Some decision are made by "higher up" and does not involve engineers
    Corporate spirit is becoming stale in recent years

    Advice to Senior Managementhire more intrapreneur

    Exciting place to be

    Layout Designer (Current Employee) Hyderābād (India)

    ProsThe company culture is great! Many opportunities to be promoted within and recognized for your hard work and achievements. Management is there for you in every step of the way in coaching and helping you with anything you need. One thing in my old 4 companies missing is HR support and friendliness, which you can feel at Synopsys. I am highly happy with HR at Synopsys. HR team here does lot of background check when they hire people, especially while hiring managers, which is very important for a TEAM.

    ConsThey are not best in terms of Pay when it comes to our group, but i am not too much concerned about it. I don't see much of knowledge sharing across Groups.
