ProsSenior 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementYou're doing a great job: long-term steady planning and growth.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
