Former Employee - Staff Software Engineer in San Jose, CA

I worked at Xilinx full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Xilinx has a great fundamental product and great processes. The core proposition is very high and is a great company to spend 5-7 years in and put in good work/get great rewards. Was very people oriented under Wim Roelandts. Was less so under Moshe Gavrielov, but (as I hear it), is still a people friendly company compared to peers. Work life balance is good (compared to peers) and in general, people are respected and heard all through.

Cons

There were repeated cycles of failed executions on key product launches. There was also an inability to stop churn in people, org structure and products. All this stabilized in the last few years, so not sure how things are now. The business has a fundamental issue with diversification (hard to do).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce churn in organization and key leadership.

    Xilinx is one of a few semiconductor companies which still have room to grow. Uniqueness of product and its innovation enabled continous growth.

    You need to keep up company's pace to be successful at Xilinx. Work life balance is difficult to maintain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue thriving for the success to lead company to twice as large revenue as today.
