    Pros

    Unique mid-size company with mature processes and financially best managed company. Conservative culture

    Cons

    Too much short term (minded) focus and approach. Growing pain (still operate as small company (~1B) as opposed to 2B/3000 employees.


  2. Helpful (8)

    Sinking ship. Failing product lines/strategy leads to lack of managers fostering healthy work environment.

    Pros

    Nice campus. Because its a smaller company, being able to see upper management/vps is a nice feature. Solidarity with coworkers of disapproval of management.

    Cons

    Constant re-orgs. Very high attrition rate (and forced early retirements). Severe lack of teamwork, effort by management in team building activities. Severe lack of recognition. High attrition -> lack of knowledge being passed on -> more problems and bugs. No visibility in direction of team, direction of organization, or overall strategy of projects. Stale environment (literally and figuratively) -> slow pace - takes forever to do anything. Engineers don't know whats happening , hope management knows whats happening -> but with constant re-orgs theres low hope. Low moral. Managers are more concerned about saving their own jobs, than protecting their employees and grooming their employees. Constant stabbing in the back. Lack of investment from managers in employees. Under compensated compared to market rate. A lot of politics. All managers are tenured 15+ year engineers at Altera. Severe peter principle in place.

    Advice to Management

    see "con's". Doesn't matter though, general consensus that management just doesnt care.
