Synopsys - is it the best

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Mountain View, CA (US)

I have been working at Synopsys

ProsStable company with lot of cash reserves.
Num 1 in the industry.

ConsNum 1 company does not pay num 1.
Management brings in their buddies as Peers instead of promoting employees.
Management takes credit for all success and does not share to the teams and employees.
Bureaucracy across the board with error resolution being high.
Stock offering is bad. It does not move up. Funny thing, they compare with apple when the market falls but with nothing when market moves up.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees should not be treated as commodities.
Credit and Recognition should be given.
Change the Crying baby gets more chocolates, way of treating.
