Could be number 1 in FPGAs but won't fund the company to be so...

Current Employee - Senior Product Marketing Manager in San Jose, CA
Current Employee - Senior Product Marketing Manager in San Jose, CA

I have been working at Altera (more than 8 years)

Pros

People - Top Notch ... but they are loosing them for really bad reasons. Understaffing folks so they have to do NCG roles. Need a new team of young talent to learn, expand and be part of a great company. Great Technolgy, Good Marketing and Improving operations

Cons

Under Resourced.... Very few young people... Problems 3-10 are Under Resourced;

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Add more resources.... Add more resources. .. Establish a basic ROI to everything. Not an Opportunity Cost. Nothing can compare to 70pts of margin. Nothing can move forward with proper funding.
