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

    Pros

    great products, broad customer base. you can own a lot of activities and drive them. closely integrated with sales and engineering

    Cons

    very under-staffed. what used to be 5 people jobs are now handled by one. So people are spread too thin and quality suffers

    Advice to Management

    be open to hiring new college grads and interns. this enables to the senior people to handle more strategic activities rather than be buried in tactical stuff

    I have been working at Xilinx full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The employees are extremely friendly and want to help others to be successful. They produce a great product. There are many opportunities to learn and try new things. For the most part most roles have a good work life balance.

    Cons

    The company is going through a transition. This is not uncommon for tech companies, but it is a bit disruptive to the work environment at this time.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if we could hear from the Sr. Execs more often on business priorities, customer feedback and the industry environment.
