Our Values

Defining who we are, what we do, and where we’re headed — together.

Synopsys Values Pyramid

For more than 30 years our core values have been the foundation of our culture—Integrity, Execution Excellence, Leadership, and Passion. But we’re also always looking ahead, at what’s next for us. That’s why we bring our values to life with a “Yes, if” mindset — which means we never see solving a problem as impossible. We challenge ourselves and each other to simply shift our perspectives to see how we can make it possible. 

Integrity does what’s right

Often thought of internally as “we do what we say and say what we do,” integrity is the basis for everything we do. It’s about trust, dignity, authenticity, and respect—as well as encouraging different points of view.

Execution Excellence gets it done

Customer success through execution excellence is about delivering the most value to our customers by continually improving how we work. So, we’re committed to fostering a culture of trust, where people are empowered to bring their best selves forward—to drive the innovation that fuels our customers’ success. 

Leadership shows us the way

Leadership looks forward—and doing so requires vision and courage. As the market leader in our field, our leaders are focused on accelerating advantageous change for our people, our customers, our communities, and our industry.

Passion drives us to do it all

Our passion is our differentiator—the actions and energy that demonstrate our values. We speak up. We lift each other up. We celebrate our differences. Together, we create space for new ideas and new ways to make a difference for people around the world through our technology.

Bringing it all together

We all live by our values every day, infusing them into every interaction—from meetings with teams to conversations with customers. But they really stand out when it comes to what we stand for.  

Inclusion & Diversity

Our focus on building and developing diverse teams at Synopsys is not only the right thing to do for our employees, but also the right thing to do for our company and customers.

Corporate Social Responsibility

We believe in the importance of translating our company values into action for the common good. That means making ethical practices a priority wherever we live and work.
