    I have been working at Synopsys

    Pros

    Leader in their domain, divesting in multiple domains which shows the maturity and business acumen of founding forefather. Overall good working environment, marginal growth compared to peers in the industry. Strong foundation of Integrity and Ethics imbibed from the founder and leading by example

    Cons

    Depends on the business group one gets hired into, some of the managers provides conducive work environment and opportunities for their team to grow and excel while few don't have any interest for people genuinely performing under him/her. Some of the seniors don't nurture budding young talent considering them as competition for themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strike the right balance and blend seniors with curios and eager to learn young talent which lays the strong foundation for future prospects to sustain in rapidly changing ecosystem

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Maintain professionalism, during meetings the presenter and the attendees tend to talk in native language
    2. Salaries appear bloated. You cannot add benefits in your salary. Example, Sodexo is listed in the salary
    3. Off site events are minimum. For the record, I haven't been to any offsite

    Current Employee - Senior CAE
    Current Employee - Senior CAE

    I have been working at Synopsys

    Pros

    You can relax & enjoy. Its a great place to work. Excellent flexibility at work.

    You can come to office happily at 10:30 AM or even later. Spend your time having tea/snacks, 1 Hour for Lunch, 1 Hour for post lunch walk, Gym, Play TT, leave by 4:30 PM. Just work for 1 to 2 Hours a day. That's more than enough.

    To check on you, your own manager comes much later than 10:30 AM on majority of the days. So to cover themselves, they say its flexible work culture. While the reality is you don't need to work much.

    Your own management will tell you how not to deliver at work and still push the blame of the others.

    Management will bind you and say not it interact/collaborate with out side employees.

    Know one will ever know what you are working on or what you are doing.

    Cons

    You own management will project your hardwork as theirs.
    From your hardwork, your own manager will take 90% of credit and if are lucky, you will get the 10% credit for your own Hardwork.
    Local Management is more focused on their own growth than that of their team members.
    Local Bangalore management, does not let you talk to US management as they are scared that you may revel the reality.
    Local Bangalore management wants you to work with no expectations on career growth.
    Local management is there for a decade and very much stagnant. They are neither enthusiastic to take more challenges nor will let the young employees collaborate to deliver.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open eyes, know the reality. Take feedback on the managers from individual employees. Ensure a proper time-in time-out for all. Change the rigid local management and cut unnecessary bureaucracy. Look for the best interest of Synopsys and not for the interest of just two individuals.
