    Pros

    The management attitude towards work life balance is great. It is very unusual for the Silicon Valley.

    Cons

    Job offers tend to be less than other companies in the same field and the 401K contributions by the company are really low.
    The company tends to attract people who are more interested in work life balance than in working with the most talented engineers. Of course there are some really bright people there, but they only tend to stay if they have families or want to have a more flexible schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to attract and keep talented engineers.

    Pros

    There are the best reasons to work at Xilinx. The top three reasons include the fact that there are good people in the company despite the layoffs and changes. The layoff was good in cleaning up overhead but there were also some key people that were layed off as a result. The drive to work is a great commute (reverse commute from valley). The Xilinx product offering remains innovative and creative although the competition is increasing.

    Cons

    instability today in organization restructuring
    poor communication
    dilution of core values

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the people that do the work; Understand fully what business you are managing

    Pros

    I like the fact that it is non confrontational, and of course the work life balance is a huge plus.

    Cons

    The lack of growth within the company is a con, and since it is a large company others may get lost in the shuffle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more focus groups with the regular employess to have one-on-ones about what is going on within the company.

    No opinion of CEO
