A wild ride

Marketing Manager (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsGreat products and technology.
Many talented and friendly employees.
Promotes work-life balance.
Depending on where you live, the unusual location can make for a good commute traveling opposite the rush-hour traffic.

ConsEmployees treated as disposable tools by the Gavrielov regime; there has been a never-ending series of layoffs/RIFs throughout the company since their arrival three years ago. Cuts made without regard for employee talent and contribution. Steadily moving engineering, manufacturing, and support functions to India and Singapore.
Stingy with raises and promotions; employees should just be grateful that they have a job.
Lot's of politics and a passive-aggressive environment.
Headquarters are in San Jose, but location feels disconnected from Silicon Valley.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake the time to learn who really gets the work done.

    The company has great potential, but I'm rotting on the vine

    Senior Staff Engineer (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    I have been working at Xilinx


    Pros: Xilinx is a company filled with high-caliber people making great products. … Cons: A divide has developed between the executive levels and all other employees. There is a sense of "them" and "us." There… Advice to Senior Management: Directors and above: simply walk around and talk to people. Drop into their cubes and chat. … More
