    I have been working at Altera full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    In engineering, you get to be around smart and friendly folks, who focus on problems at hand. Most everyone is aligned towards common goals. Immediate managers and directors are well respected and take care of their teams. You can express your opinion without fear, argue, brainstorm. Not much politics there. There's a variety of projects, most of which make it to production. Recently, there are various fun activities, such as ping-pong or bocce tournaments, volleyball, etc. Good facility and reasonable resources. It is a comfortable environment, and there are many people, who stick around for 10-20 years.

    Cons

    I hear the picture may not be the same outside engineering. Because of lots of long-term and bright folks and small or no growth, the career opportunities are limited. The expectations are high, and it's pretty hard to "exceed" them. The company is very money-conscious, which is good for a corporation, but sometimes feels as penny-pinching. There's always a lot of work to do, and many stay until 7-8 pm, which can become stressful. Some "brain drain" to Google recently. Benefits seem to slowly deteriorate.

    Advice to Management

    Enable career opportunities. Grow the company.
