There is hope, but HR performance rating system is encouraging back-stabbing culture.

Pros

Some of the best people to work with.
Still has innovation at the core.

Cons

Confusion up and down the command chain.
Clean and efficient execution still face challenges.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Modify performance rating system to promote team work, not back-stabbing.
Sr. management should start actively listen to the ground level workers, that's where the pain is. Find the pain, and develop plans to address the pain.

    - re-org after re-org, nurturing only those political monsters with thick faces and less than minimum decency to other human beings

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    life is short... be good for a change... remember how you saw the world when you were a little kid... having fun and imagine things... there are more things in life on earth than "efficiency"

    Pros

    The company was once a wonderful place to work. Maybe it can be that way again someday ...

    Cons

    Xilinx used to be a very good place to work. The new executive management team has completely changed the atmosphere and corporate culture for the worse. These guys came in with the mindset that everything about the company was broken and that they know just how to fix it. The fact of the matter is that the company was mostly in very good shape. The employees were motivated and happy for the most part. Most of our products were selling very well - the execption being the Spartan family which was torpedoed by the poor decisions of incompetent management. A few changes to the corporate structure were in order but not the clean sweep that Gavrielov and Peng have orchestrated. They threw out the bath water, the baby, and everything else in the bathroom that wasn't nailed down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to LISTEN to the feedback you're getting from your employees instead of brushing it off. You are losing good people at a rapid rate - they want to work somewhere that they are treated with respect. Some time soon there will be a "tipping point" when all your engineers are new hires in India that don't have a clue how anything works. The company will then implode in a glorious fashion. If you really care about the future success of Xilinx you need to PAY ATTENTION. Stop making employee decisions based only on greed.
