I worked at Altera

Pros

Nice location, good facilities, good perks (free drinks, ping pong and foosball), very nice benefits packages and salary. Challenging work. Managers tries really hard to develop employees. Fun group to work with

Cons

Demanding work. Very flat organizational structure, which means the chance of promotion to management is slim. Very competitive working environment. A lot of documentation, rules and procedures to follow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Talk to lower level staff as much as possible. They would like to know what the management are thinking. Instead of issuing a one sentence strategy statement, try to present it in a more meaningful way to individual contributor at different function.

    I have been working at Altera

    Pros

    Highly technical, challenging work. Decent pay.

    Cons

    No growth in North America. No opportunities for advancement. Managers are technical but lack people skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to manage people. If you want to be a technical contributor get out of management.

    I have been working at Altera

    Pros

    growth, work hard;play hard, challenging, personal growth, excellent sr management, competitive products, multi-indusrty protects downside, good technology partners, listens to its customers

    Cons

    it can be very intense especially working in the field so it is certainly not a low stress job. The competition is intense and everyone is expected to bring in the results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont underestimate the competition, especially the most desperate competitors. Those are the ones that will be the most creative and potentially dangerous with disruptive technology. Disruptive technology is what made Altera a great company itself.
