    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great products and technology.
    Many talented and friendly employees.
    Promotes work-life balance.
    Depending on where you live, the unusual location can make for a good commute traveling opposite the rush-hour traffic.

    Cons

    Employees treated as disposable tools by the Gavrielov regime; there has been a never-ending series of layoffs/RIFs throughout the company since their arrival three years ago. Cuts made without regard for employee talent and contribution. Steadily moving engineering, manufacturing, and support functions to India and Singapore.
    Stingy with raises and promotions; employees should just be grateful that they have a job.
    Lot's of politics and a passive-aggressive environment.
    Headquarters are in San Jose, but location feels disconnected from Silicon Valley.

    Current Employee - Senior Staff Engineer in San Jose, CA
    Current Employee - Senior Staff Engineer in San Jose, CA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Xilinx is a company filled with high-caliber people making great products. The recent restructuring has succeeded in establishing a culture of accountability and performance.

    Cons

    A divide has developed between the executive levels and all other employees. There is a sense of "them" and "us." There is a sense that while employee input is considered, there is never a true dialogue. Trust between the levels has broken down.

    Advice to Management

    Directors and above: simply walk around and talk to people. Drop into their cubes and chat. This is all it would take to repair the damaged trust -- actual conversations. Roundtables are a joke.
