I've been with Synopsys for a little over five years, and while I truly do enjoy working here, the constant layoffs are taking their toll on me.
Since I've been here, we've had a round of layoffs every single year. This has become a pattern, and we are at the point where we expect them. This means that we are always worried and stressing over whether the next year will be it for us.
It's causing anxiety and a drop in morale, which is really sad since, as I said, otherwise Synopsys is a great place to work at.
Hopefully this pattern will break soon, but I'm not really holding my breath...
