    I have been working at Synopsys full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It’s been really an incredible experience over the past 1 year with Synopsys. Coming from Computers Science Background, I got to work on & learn the core-concepts of Computer Science revolving around in-depths of Operating System, Compiler Design & Architecture in real-time. Aside from work, there are lots of fun activities going around ranging from Internal Bashes, Fun Outings to even stepping on cricket field with colleagues. Synopsys has a very good work-culture, pretty flexible work-life balance making employees to stay for longer-terms with the company.

    Cons

    I can't think of any as of now.

    I have been working at Synopsys full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My experience in Synopsys has been wonderful so far. It offers friendly work environment, where one may seek help from anyone about everything, & provide ample opportunities for innovative works, apart from weekly knowledge sharing sessions, where one may choose any topic, be it advanced stuff of ML/AI, or the latest tools of Synopsys itself. The management is quite frank & help you in everyway possible to make the work fun & easy. I’m happy to be a part of Synopsys. 😊

    Cons

    Work exposure is team dependent
