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

Pros

Xilinx is still delivering very sophisticated products.
The company had many talented people, if any of them are still there.

Cons

The management has no respect for their employees. I don't see how this can be healthy for anyone.
Many of these who are still there are still wondering when they will get AXED.

Advice to Management

Does it matter what I say here? Moshe and his team does not care about what anyone says.

    I have been working at Xilinx full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Xilinx is one of a few semiconductor companies which still have room to grow. Uniqueness of product and its innovation enabled continous growth.

    Cons

    You need to keep up company's pace to be successful at Xilinx. Work life balance is difficult to maintain.

    Advice to Management

    Continue thriving for the success to lead company to twice as large revenue as today.

    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.
