    I worked at Altera full-time for more than 3 years


    Intellectual property portfolio
    FPGA market controlled by stable duopoly of Altera and Xilinx
    Very nice facility
    9-5 job. Some work even less.


    Toxic corporate culture
    Architects with proven bad ideas remain in place to generate more bad ideas
    Outdated IC design practices
    Obsolete compute infrastructure
    Malaysian subsidiary and San Jose headquarters are too many time zones apart

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I cannot believe the poor quality of IC design work. You would think Altera had never designed a chip before. If the design contains errors, the cause must be identified and the errors must be corrected.

    Get with modern industry standard IC design practice. At least use a flow, for God's sake!

    Compared to engineer salaries, even the best computer equipment is cheap. Just buy it.
