    Current Employee - Product Development Engineer in San Jose, CA

    I have been working at Altera full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Best part about the working environment in PSG is the people working culture, the company has a well-versed history of having employees to be more supportive between each other and you can hardly see work where people point fingers and stop working along. Everyone wants to make things work together as a team.

    Cons

    Tight schedules and room to grow may be lacking a little. Workload can be a lot and may limit the individual from learning something out of the zone
