    Stable but not innovative

    Senior R&D Engineer (Current Employee) Noida

    ProsFinancial Stability is the best thing in Synopsys. You do not need to worry about salary.

    ConsSalary. They are so miser in paying. The work pressure is too much and there is very less innovation. The company grows only by acquisition.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider improving the work culture and have more easy schedules.

    Stay Away - Synopsys "Noida"

    Senior R&D Engineer II (Current Employee) Noida

    ProsSalary is not very bad. Insurance is average.Some additional benefits like car loan, personal loan.
    Best in class for a few products, while average in many.

    ConsThe major team - which is the layout, CAD and memory engineering team - is hard working team, but most of the good work goes to Mountain View, so a feeling of being unimportant

    Really a poor structure for few "non-major" teams (mostly the s/w team - from VL)
    Just too noisy. Lot of gossips, facebooking, shopping and hardly any attention to work. Rude and unhelpful when people have any quarries Support team managers just too interested in discussing their kids, families and husbands. And not any decency for letting people around them work. Poor skills set of all people in these teams People in this team have worked for 5-8 yrs. You would expect them to know the engineering flow by now, but they just act alien to it

    My advice for someone who got an offer would be to keep away from the above "non-major" teams and their managers. (it is not a place to be).
    Rest of the teams are fine, but just try for US location (if possible).

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive teams in india good work.
