    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Cadence Design Systems

    Pros

    Dealing with a wide variety of technology and customers. Roles are flexible and employees are empowered to make decisions. Everyone is very focussed on doing things right and looking after our customers as partners, to achieve long-term success. There is a good level of trust between team members and with management.

    Cons

    The pressure is relentless; there's always a customer in crisis who needs our support, often conflicting with other priorities, so there's always that unspoken pressure to work long hours to fit everything in. A truly global team means meetings often happen at the extreme ends of the work day.
