    I have been working at Altera (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    People - Top Notch ... but they are loosing them for really bad reasons. Understaffing folks so they have to do NCG roles. Need a new team of young talent to learn, expand and be part of a great company. Great Technolgy, Good Marketing and Improving operations

    Cons

    Under Resourced.... Very few young people... Problems 3-10 are Under Resourced;

    Advice to Management

    Add more resources.... Add more resources. .. Establish a basic ROI to everything. Not an Opportunity Cost. Nothing can compare to 70pts of margin. Nothing can move forward with proper funding.
