I worked at Xilinx full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Very interesting people. First years - a lot of fun, discussions, exchange of ideas. Scientific seminars, learning. I felt that management was interested in people

Cons

No promotions, no growth, not even single "Thank you" for job well done. Focal review has become humiliation lesson. Often your effort is evaluated inversely proportional to contribution. People start to leave company in masses.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Save old culture if you can

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

    Pros

    Generally good people, though as other have point out, becoming less with each round of layoff. Very frustrating to work hard, get result and not be appreciated.

    Cons

    Lackluster management. Just bosses, no leaders. Continuous layoff. Flawed approach to forcing performance distributions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take money and run. Wait, already done former, so now just leave.
