Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
Cadence Design Systems Inc. has been ranked 21st on the World's Best Multinational Workplaces list from the Great Place to Work®Institute. Cadence is one of only 25 companies selected for this list from over 1,100 corporations worldwide. Selection for this prestigious recognition is acknowledgment for the high levels of commitment and engagement of the global Cadence team of over 6500 employees and the company's commitment to its One Cadence—One Team culture.
Cadence is comprised of a diverse team of employees who say they are given the opportunity to innovate and partner with the world's most exciting technology companies to build products that are transforming lives. People come to Cadence not only to work on cutting-edge technology, but also to be a part of a strong team environment that encourages them to do their best work and grow their careers.
"The Cadence culture is a competitive differentiator worldwide and this 'World's Best' ranking confirms what we already know – that innovation starts with our people and our employees' commitment to our culture drives our success," said Tina Jones, senior vice president of global human resources at Cadence. "Operating globally as one team, Cadence employees are passionate about collaborating to develop innovative technologies, and we are proud to work for a company that provides us with opportunities for personal growth and such meaningful work."
The Cadence one team approach can also be seen in its employee commitment to giving back to the communities where they live and work. Employees are inspired by the Cadence community programs, which include a global matching gift program, a community portal providing volunteer opportunities to employees and a global Volunteer Time Off benefit, which provides employees five paid days off to volunteer. Cadence's commitment to communities can also be seen through its University Donation Program where the company donates software to over 1000 universities around the globe.
To qualify for this award, companies must have been selected for at least five national Great Place to Work lists, have at least 5,000 employees worldwide and count at least 40 percent of their global workforce (or 5,000 employees) outside of the company's home country. The Great Place to Work Institute has recognized Cadence in the U.S., Canada, China, Germany, India, Ireland, Korea and United Kingdom.

An attorney at DesignCon? I wasn’t sure I heard that right either, but it’s true. I sat down for an interview with international trade lawyer James Kim of ArentFox Schiff LLP. James was at the show to present a session entitled “Chips, Batteries & Charging Stations,” which highlights the Biden administration’s steps to secure the supply chain for the EV industry. James gave me a quick primer on international tariffs and trade laws, and much more.
Every year or so, I like to chat with my friend, M&A expert Tom Kastner of GP Ventures. I know he has been busy the past few years, so I was anxious to find out more about it. He is the one person I know who really has his finger on the pulse of the industry. Tom has always been a great source of information for me and the industry as a whole.
It’s a well-known fact that if your company is not growing and moving forward every single day, it is dying. The same rule applies to technology companies: To stay alive, you must grow your technology by keeping up with your customers’ product technology needs. Too many printed circuit board fabricators are dying a slow death because they are not willing or able to invest the time, energy, money, and passion to always work on their technology.
When it comes to business-to-business (B2B) customer service, it is often the little things that matter. While many companies focus on the big things, they ignore the little "softer things" that really create a great customer experience. I truly believe that the higher the technology a company produces, the lousier its customer service. It's as if those companies producing the highest tech products feel they deserve a pass for the easier, always important but more mundane, aspects of customer service.
