Re: Mentor Graphics Wasting Your Money [re: tourwilson]Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

The "party" you mentioned is more than likely the annual Sales Kick-Off meeting that Mentor Graphics has every year.  As a former Mentor employee who has attended these events in the past I can tell you that this is not a frivolous expenditure but is used to coordinate and maximize the sales and marketing efforts for the year. 


The amount of money that Mentor would save by not having the meeting would have a very minor effect on the price of a license if the savings was passed on to the consumer and would not alleviate the choice your company has to make.  The amount of money that Mentor would lose by not having the meeting (and thereby not having the opportunity to coordinate the sales and marketing effort) probably greatly exceeds the cost of having the meeting (I would assume that somebody at Mentor corporate did a cost-benefits analysis).
