    I have been working at Xilinx full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pay, great location, strong relationships at the worker level. Employees at the lower levels genuinely help each other. The technology is cutting edge.

    Cons

    Management is focused on cost cutting and does not value employees. Culture and values are non-existent under the new leadership. Disagreeing with management and constructive feedback are not tolerated. Only a select few people are rewarded and the performance management system is archaic. Many employees work in fear but are very loyal so they tolerate the stressful working conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember why the company became successful - the employees. Learn from other successful leadership teams at other companies on how to earn respect and trust. Focus on growing the company, not just cost cutting. Pay attention to feedback and talk to actual workers, not just yourselves.

    I have been working at Xilinx as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Had freedom to work in my way - I was given a lot of freedom with respect to organizing my work and my methods of getting the work done.
    Got to use technologies I preferred
    Great team and mentor, welcomed me to the team and supported me throughout.

    Cons

    Software developers are not the most important people at Xilinx. Being a predominantly semi-conductor company hardware people with a EE are obviously the most influential people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please bring in more interns and try to convert them to full time.
