    I worked at Altera full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pleasant, modern work environment with competitive pay and benefits. The FPGA market has been very profitable over the last decade leading to a very stable business environment, perhaps too stable.

    Cons

    Management is hugely risk averse and won't go in new directions unless their main rival leads the way. Many senior employees have been there for decades which indicates a certain stability but also leads to tunnel vision and lack of capability or will to go after different business opportunities outside of classic FPGA. Don't expect many opportunities to engage in innovative work. It's more like: let's keep recycling the old ideas and make some tweaks here and there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some vision and take a few risks in new ventures otherwise you risk becoming a dinosaur. Stop dreaming that FPGAs will displace ASICs - that game has been played out.
