I have been working at Xilinx full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Xilinx is a top-notch company in programmable logic field, with cutting edge innovations n its field. Good work place, people are nice to work with, easy to get along with.

Cons

no serious downsides, but like for most companies, there is room for improvement. It can grow at a rapid pace to distinguish itself and increase its lead from its competitors.

Advice to Management

There is some interaction now, but some more interaction with all employees could help.

    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 Management

    Reduce churn in organization and key leadership.

    Pros

    Treat engineers with high respect. Good employees' benefit. Nice working environment and culture.

    Cons

    Job is divided into very little segments, so people are specialized in very small area. Not a lot of growing opportunities and hard to build a career path.
