    I worked at Altera full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It has advanced FPGA design technology; many professional and intelligent people there. You can a lot of stuff in terms of integrated circuit design.

    Cons

    Poor management; the focus is reducing cost/making money instead of making its products better and more competitive.

    Advice to Management

    No need to just focus on saving money and making the stock price go up. If you work out high-quality chips and tools, the revenue will become better accordingly.

    I worked at Altera full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great environment and benefits. Salaries are good, benefits are great, the facilities are superb, you won't find better. Good technology usage. Career opportunities if you play the games

    Cons

    Very beauracratic at all levels, office politics are very much in play, again at all levels. The company is very established in its limited products and processes so they tend to focus more than other companies on the politics and doing things for the sake of being seen.
    Very structured organization with little vertical growth but plenty of lateral opportunities.
