You get a paycheck. Not many pros for their contract workers.
Seem to be just a number to them if you're a contract worker. Lots of benefits if you work at HQ or are close to them. If you're further away, not many perks or support. Plus, if the company you're contracted to drops you so will Altair.

Work-life balance is the biggest pro to Altair as most managers will allow you to work when you can. This company tends to treat software engineers better. But for anyone going into a business unit, it is not a good environment.
-Pay is much lower than market average and management tries to avoid raises. Many will add money to "variable" instead of "base" pay. By the end of the year they will find reasons to take away your variable and whatever is issued is taxed at 40%
-Management is out of their field of study in most business units which leads to zero training and organization
-Re-organization is happening constantly and job duties are typically shifted among members often which can be confusing. Especially when a team member leaves and they choose to disperse activities rather than backfill.
-No performance evaluations or feedback coming from upper management
-Male contributions valued higher over females. While they stress diversity, there is a lack thereof.
-Antiquated systems that were built in-house 30 years ago. This makes it near impossible to have accurate data which could severely affect your work.
-Money is being invested in new developments with little profit expectations rather than their human capital.
-No growth opportunities, only lateral movements.
Advice to Management
