I have been working at Altera full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

At bleeding edge of technology, where it matters. Has roughly half the PLD market. Compensation, benefits in line with industry

Cons

Not very employee friendly. Management somewhat old/stodgy. Many processes in place to tell how employees need "development". As opposed to leveraging employees' strengths. All management seems to fall in the same bucket

Advice to Management

People ARE truly the best resource

    I worked at Altera full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I am not sure if there are any now. Started of long time ago and used to enjoy the place.

    Cons

    Senior management made poor decisions 4-5 years ago and have since hiding their missteps thru constant reorgs and layoffs. No accountability of decisions made by executive management. Used to be solid number two FPGA company and is on the verge of becoming a me too FPGA provide along with Microsemi and quick logic.

    Too many "yes sirs" with little to no technical insight among middle managers.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in engineering and product creation.

    Pros

    The company is organized without a strict hierarchy where you can communicate freely with your managers and lots of meetings to share ideas.

    Cons

    Too many meetings took lots of time. The communication between department is always troublesome. Every department tries to surrender the responsibility
