    I worked at Synopsys full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Stable 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

    Cons

    could 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 ManagementAdvice

    hire more intrapreneur
