    I have been working at Altera full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Relatively good base pay in comparison to the other companies in the free trade zone.
    Very clean working environment with excellent gym.
    Great team building event from time to time.

    Cons

    In house test & characterisation tools tends to frustrate engineers.
    Unsystematic process & project mismanagement is creating a lot of unnecessary work and trouble for the engineers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish an industry standard flow of silicon development & invest in more third party tools. Please make sure managers have the capability to bring up a team effectively.
