Former EmployeeIntern

"Overall a good company with some quirks"
Former EmployeeProduct Engineer
Ansys is a global leader in engineering simulation software. There are a lot of talented, intelligent people working there. With that being said, work can be very siloed and there is a lot of distrust/competition between internal business units. I was working on project that spanned two business units, and the lack of cooperation made it difficult to accomplish anything. There are many layers of management, which didn't help the situation. In general its a great company with good benefits, but the position I got into was a road block for my career aspirations.
