I worked at Xilinx full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Good historical culture built from original founders
Loyal long term customers who work closely with the company
Good opportunity to collaborate with partners across industry to drive innovation

Cons

Culture is suffering with new management focus on numbers and metrics over people and innovation
Difficult market space being replaced by processors and ASSPs
Lack of market driven focus, engineering too powerful

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the market, don't let engineering control the filter on market input.

    I've worked here for 10+ years. Used to be good place to work but morale has taken a dive in the last couple of years.

    I have been working at Xilinx full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    If you are a "yes" man there is opportunity to move up in the corporate ladder. The managers and VP's in my department don't like disagreement.

    Cons

    The company downsizes regularly. Employees create projects to look busy, Managers are clueless and lie to hit goals. Morale is at the lowest I've seen in my 10+ years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a course on business ethics

    I worked at Xilinx full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very bright group of people to work with.

    Cons

    Direct communication seems to be a stumbling block for this company. It is not perceived as a positive thing and as a result, too many meetings, not enough clear decisions and actual plan of action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Say what you mean and mean what you say.
