I worked at Altera full-time

Pros

Solid products. Schedules accurate. HR good.

Cons

Only matters who you know. Politics is everything. Most good people have been let go.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean out the deadwood in senior management. All the yes men need to go.

No opinion of CEO

    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.
