Design Engineer Intern

Design Engineer (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

ProsChance to work on something important and to own a piece of the whole project.
Easy work life balance
Good managers
Great small company culture
Chance to be involved in a current project and provide an impact

ConsNeed to work on setting the goals for the internship in the beginning itself so that you don't waste much time in doing multiple things.
Do not allow training courses to interns.

Advice to Senior ManagementAbsorb interns more as full-timers as they end up gaining a lot of company specific engineering knowledge

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Management without sense of direction.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Altera full-time for more than 8 years


    Pros: No finger pointing culture. Compensation is good. Cons: Management has no sense of direction. The will is there but the vision is blure. A lot of talk but no acton. Meetings are so… Advice to Senior Management: Wake up! Management is incompetent and indecisive.. All they care is politics. Competition will beat… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    Must be aggressive and vocal.. or languish. They use bell curve to rate your team !

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)

    I worked at Altera full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: I worked at Altera full-time for more than 6 years Some good people. Some interesting technology... with some cutting edge ideas. Learned to not get marginalized… Cons: I suppose this is true of other big tech companies... but in the 6 years I worked there compensation, promotions, bonus's were whittled down drastically.… Advice to Senior Management: Stop squeezing every penny away from your general workforce population. Reward everyone equally. Leaves a bad taste.. and the top talent is going to leave… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
