    Current Employee - Product Development Engineer in San Jose, CA

    I have been working at Altera full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Best part about the working environment in PSG is the people working culture, the company has a well-versed history of having employees to be more supportive between each other and you can hardly see work where people point fingers and stop working along. Everyone wants to make things work together as a team.

    Cons

    Tight schedules and room to grow may be lacking a little. Workload can be a lot and may limit the individual from learning something out of the zone

    Advice to Management

    Be more attentive to employee when there is a request to enhance/upgrade lab equipment and tool. It can be frustrating at times to work under such resources and be expected quick fix/results.

    Pros

    Dynamic culture ,nice work environment (free coffee ,snap etc) compensation and benefit is above average (company will pay your personal part of the social benefit in China ,not sure in the rest of world)

    Local staff will only have a short visibility of company roadmap To a sales guy ,product is three generation behind the main competitor ,what can you do ? Product planning is not very good at defining the NG product to meet the customer demand After acquired by Intel ,not very clear career path for sales and marketing guys
