Mentor Graphics Employee

"Great company with solid technology and business execution. Value work and life balance and excellent management team to work with. Somewhat conservative in making radical investment limits the potential of growth. Siemens acquisition brought additional financial burden which further constrained the business competitiveness."

"I have worked for Mentor Graphics since 2012. It is one of the top companies in Electronic Design Automation tools. And above average in Embedded Software. Working environment is good. But local management has made a pool of politics which causes best talent to go away."
