    I worked at Altera

    Pros

    Decent pay and coworkers. Good working environment if you have a good middle/senior manager.

    Cons

    Some senior managers change things for the sake of changing without evaluating all expects and providing convincing/compelling reasons. Some changes create unfair situation to headquarter employees.

    Offshore shop is ok. However, senior mgt seems to approve of rewarding offshore employees who are struggling to catch up while treating the knowledgeable headquarter employees unfairly.

    A simple decision may end up consuming unnecessary hours of discussions. Completing simple tasks may require equal or more discussion times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Changes are always welcomed as long as it is a win-win situation for the majority, not uncertainty.
