I have been working at Altera full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- engineers have vertical assignments. Responsible for all aspects of design from architecture, RTL entry, verification, schematics, layout, etc.
- lots of opportunities to do new things within your group
- technical leadership opportunities

Cons

- too much planning on what to do vs. actually doing what needs to be done (make sense?)
- more competition than collaboration between groups and cross-functional teams
- too often the solution to a solve a technical problem is to call long meetings

Advice to Management

Help engineers understand that they need to be responsible for their work
