Cold and depressing - It's a very unfriendly place to work

Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

Prosa. Location: In the valley
b. Legacy mainstream products work well in the field
c. Customers are buffered from the effects of the mismanagement of the last few years
d. Cafeteria

Consa. "Mean"agement will grin and stab you - (if you are thinking of a marketing job, look elsewhere)
b. There is no work-life balance since Moshe and his SVPs took control - (bring Wim out of retirement please!)
c. Poor job security - if you're not one of the favored employees
d. Marketing is clueless about what customers want and management will force their will on the customer
e. Performance management culture came with lousy HR VP from cadence and managers abuse it now.

Advice to Senior ManagementLeave or ask the board to sell Xilinx to a stronger company. It is not sufficient to keep increasing the cash dividend to shareholders. Xilinx has stalled compared to Altera, to which we have lost market share since 2010. Altera also has the lead in 40nm which is going to lead to market loss in the coming years as well.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
