    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Xilinx full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good technology
    Interesting and challenging problems
    Talented, dedicated, unusually loyal people at the leaf level

    Cons

    Dwindling /political culture and stacked ranking make for an often unpleasant work environment. It encourages people to be more ruthless rather than collaborative.
    Obscure and proprietary problem spaces do not increase ones value much outside of the company
    Top down and deep hierarchy - most managers and many directors have muted decision making influence

    Advice to Management

    Business and people management go hand in hand. You will be more successful if you motivate 95%+ of a valuable workforce rather than demotivate 50%+ (in varying degrees). Good management has virtually no additional cost, but it is not easy. If you need a survey to try to figure it out, you probably will not.
