I have been working at Xilinx

Pros

Good work life balance, very respectful colleagues, good team environment

Cons

Now, too many layoffs, clueless upper management with no understanding of FPGAs,
product positioning or the market and no vision. You cannot cut your way to growth.
Lose this management and start over.

    Pros

    Co-workers are good to work with and have for the most part been team players.
    We get to build a good product that I think still has great potential.

    Cons

    New goal system actually discourages teamwork. While it is intended to motivate you to meet your goals, the side effect is that helping others might lower your place on the curve. This would lead to less chances for raises and bonuses.

    Top level management is out of touch with their employees. Xilinx used to be consistently one of the top ten companies to work for, now it doesn't even make the list. The attitude from the top seems to be one of little respect for the employees, their experience or skills. It seems the employees are considered easily interchangeable resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stock value should not be the only consideration in how to run a company. Communicate more openly and honestly with the employees.

    Pros

    Xilinx is is a growing profitable market but good strategy and execution is has been going well over the last year or two

    Cons

    Xilinx haas undergone a lot of cultural changes and people are still having a difficult time adapting. Also the pay for performance process is horrible and a waste of a lot of work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the pay for performance and half year review. It is a waste of effort and does not help drive better performance
