"I worked for Cadence as a machine learning intern for around 3 and a half months. I worked on a problem to provide an ML alternative to their optimization problem. It was a challenging project but the environment was great. The manager and co-workers always supported me. A great learning experience."

"I did not work there very long since I had made a plan to go to college (despite being asked to stay on) but while I worked there, I really like the job. What made the job was the team I worked with. The department manager was approachable and cared for the department she managed which of course made everything even better there. The team members were always helpful and when needed could provide excellent constructive criticism to make me better at what I was doing. If I had not decided to go to college, I would still be working there."

"There is no living wage. The amount of work for this position and the time it takes to commute is disappointing because the compensation doesn't match the time, effort or experience that so many employees work for."

"I’ve worked with Cadence over the summer and they had strong family traits as a company. They focused mainly on schools and a couple retiring homes. Overall as a company they are on a hiring freeze and have had a major decrease in staffing. Still a great team and company to be around."
