This company has reinvented itself!

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

Pros

The senior management overhaul several years back set the wheels in motion for a major re-engineering effort (especially in software). There's extensive engineering talent, the company's silicon/software offerings right now are quite strong and the momentum we're gaining as a result is the real deal!

Cons

The reinvention has been a wild ride at times but overall a rewarding experience. Expect to work hard here - there is no free ride.

    Good for a while, until changes at the CEO and upper management level screwed everything up

    Pros

    Good products, market leader, convenient location

    Cons

    Constant layoffs, no trust between employees and management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop having so many layoffs - build a good team and then keep it in place to get the job done

    I have been working at Xilinx full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Xilinx empowers employees, compensation is inline with market, CEO knows what he is doing. The product in the marketplace is gaining acceptance and maintaining dominance over our major competitors.

    Cons

    Many employees have a "its not my job" attitude or feel entitled to their job for just showing up. Lack of formal training for new people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move business systems out of ops and IT and into the hands of the business people who use them.
