Good technology, people spread too thin
Engineer (Current Employee), San Jose, CAMay 20, 2013
Pros: many very good people, strong teamwork, great technology
Cons: not enough people, creating high turnover and making things worse
Altera offers great technology but has focused too long on operational efficiency and doesn't have enough people in the right places to be nearly as successful as it could be. This has created a culture in which slow reaction to market changes, customers, and competition are accepted as normal.

Altera was a great experence and a excellent company in many areas.
Major Account Manager (Former Employee), San Jose, CaliforniaFebruary 26, 2013
I worked remote with Altera covering the Utah/Idaho/Montana territory. I was responsible for all channel partners and distributors and helped them reach their budget and keeping them trainned on the Altera products. I had direct cutomers responsiblities for the major customers in the territory ( HP, Micron, L3 Communications, GEHC, Rockwell Collins, – more... Raytheon, Fusion-io and Grass Valley Group).
My direct line management was located in Denver. I set up customer meetings with the intent of designing our prodcuts into their future products. I worked directly with design engineers and company management up to the C-levels. I worked with purcahasing and commodity management, making sure products shipped on time for their schedules. I was responsible to handle any issuess at the customer and was the first line of contact.
I learned that I am a self starter, competitive person and capible to find solutions to challenges and issues so that everyone wins. I am excellant at developing customer relationships. I learned to be strategic in my sales approach. I am a hardworker and use to working well beyond the 8-5pm day.
Hardest part of the job was keeping everyone focused on teh same objective and to follow the plan we set as a team.
The most enjoyable part of the job was winning as a team and helping customer find solutions to their issues and problems. – less

fantastic place to work for.
Quality Assurance , Coordinator and Trainer (Former Employee), San Jose, CANovember 29, 2012
Pros: playing basketball, company benefits, health care
Cons: none.
I was in charge in the calibration program, as well as MIL-STD specification test of FBGA, PLD. packages.
Management were great. My co workers were like family members.
The hardest part of the job was not being able to interact with your co-worker every day due to load of work.
The most enjoyable part of the job when we had to work overtime in week – more... end to meet customer orders. – less
