Pros: It is a very powerful and versatile tool. I have used it for both thermal and mechanical analysis. There is also some useful online support from the community.

Cons: The learning curve was very steep for me. It took a very long time to develop useful models applicable to my work.

Pros: The solver is robust and the user interface is easy to understand and manipulate once you are familiar with it. Our results have been highly successful when validated in the field.

Cons: For a new user, it can be difficult to learn. It is also quite expensive, but you do get what you pay for.

Pros: Wide range of options for Finite Element Analysis

Overall: ANSYS is an amazing software for my simulation needs. I have a huge library of options to apply to whatever project I work with. I have successfully utilized this software to simulate Computational Fluid Dynamics and Von Mises.

ANSYS offers reliable data, and I recommended it to anyone for product improvement or research and development.

Pros: Excellent GUI. Very user friendly. High accuracy and reliability. Has numerous modules for all types of analysis.

Cons: Reading mesh of imported geometry should be worked upon a little bit. Several instances have occurred wherein mesh was not read correctly leading to waste of time.

Overall: ANSYS has gone and made a designer's job easier. I mean,most designers will agree that undertaking analysis the conventional way is, lets be honest, way too tedious in this era. Now ANSYS has gone and made things much simpler for us. And with the user friendly GUI of the Workbench, ANSYS has taken ease and reliability of analysis several notches up.

That being said, it is also to be noted that with the above mentioned user-friendliness inclusions has enhanced the potency of the software. The accuracy and reliability of solutions dished out by the software is spot on.

Also for small to medium sized analysis (which is done most of the time), ANSYS does not take a toll on the PC. Analysis times are quite fast.

Overall a great software to have for analysis, simulations, design optimization, design verification, etc. This, coupled with decades of development of this software makes it one of the must haves for any design organization.

Recommendations to other buyers: A must have for any design organization.
