What do you think -- is this company going to survive and thrive? Are they looking to expand their staff, or do you think layoffs are inevitable?

How does Mentor Graphics stack up against the competition?

Just a quick about Mentor Graphics and what they are looking for:

Their job application asks for your date of birth.

This is an obvious, huge red flag for anybody who suspects that this company is actively looking for younger workers.

It is permissible to ask if an applicant is over 18, but to ask for a date of birth is apparently blatant age discrimination. There is no excuse for this.

If this is the kind of company you'd like to work for, then you should also consider that if they discriminate based on age, they'll discriminate based on other factors, too.

Mentor Graphics: REMOVE you age discrimination question from your applications.
