      Great place to work with great people

      Pros

      The people and their dedication to bring the best technically

      Cons

      Company has grown fast from a niche space EDA software company to a high mid-range software conglomerate with a wealth of great products. From a market standpoint this causes stock analyst to compare Synopsys to other software conglomerates which are in broader non-technical space. This is resulting in growing pain changes as Synopsys transitions from a small software company focused on a high level of technical excellence to a company influenced by market analysis and comparisons

      Good company, but suffering from outcome bias

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good salary, and benefits. Share-based rewards have been really good thanks to great stock performance in recent years.

      Cons

      Suffers from outcome bias. Different teams focused on avoiding extra work, rather than working together with different teams, to try and achieve best results for customers.

      Disappointing

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Pay is good and yearly bonus is usually okay. Local office culture is good.

      Cons

      Lack of career prospectives (no promotions/salary increases for multiple years running). Lack of interesting/challenging work (lots of long term projects). Attrition rate is high amongst consultants. Work is often overscoped for the time allotted, leading to long hours in order to achieve the 'work order'. Yearly feedback surveys are often ignored and no changes are made.
