Great Place to Work

Contract (Former Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I worked at Altera as a contractor for more than a year

Pros- It is a very well organized and well disciplined company
- Almost all departments have extremely well defined processess in place, making it easy for newcomers to fit in the organization.
- This company has a great Work-Life balance, people are nice and very knowledgeable

Cons- No major issues with the company itself, but if I had to offer a con it would be the smaller things in the environment which do not impact the job performance, for example the Coffee break area could be better, no free snacks or free drinks etc.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey do a really good job of taking advice from all folks, but if I had to advice, the advice would be that there are many folks who have been there for a long time and changing the ways a bit or incorporating new processess or trying new things is good. This was taking a turn for the better back in 2008.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
