Pros

Good Work Life Balance. Job security. Cost conscious.

Cons

No career development due to lack of growth in the USA. Lack of planning regarding staffing. Not enough turnover.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better planning regarding staffing would be helpful. Staffing ahead of time rather than on demand would help in better resource allocation.

    I have been working at Altera

    Pros

    Good looking campus from outside. Empty cubes and floors shut down in almost every building.

    Cons

    Horrible work culture. Management has to like your face and bootlicking will get you to keep your job. There is no value for hardwork and honesty at workplace especially in Apps. People are neither helpful nor transparent. As a junior engineer motivation and encouragement were none and irrelavant politics were being played in every level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Horrible way to manage people and transfering all the positions to Penang. Low morale for all the employees.
