I worked at Xilinx full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Treat engineers with high respect. Good employees' benefit. Nice working environment and culture.

Cons

Job is divided into very little segments, so people are specialized in very small area. Not a lot of growing opportunities and hard to build a career path.

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

    Pros

    Xilinx has a great fundamental product and great processes. The core proposition is very high and is a great company to spend 5-7 years in and put in good work/get great rewards. Was very people oriented under Wim Roelandts. Was less so under Moshe Gavrielov, but (as I hear it), is still a people friendly company compared to peers. Work life balance is good (compared to peers) and in general, people are respected and heard all through.

    Cons

    There were repeated cycles of failed executions on key product launches. There was also an inability to stop churn in people, org structure and products. All this stabilized in the last few years, so not sure how things are now. The business has a fundamental issue with diversification (hard to do).

    Advice to Management

    Reduce churn in organization and key leadership.

    "Once it was a great place to work for, but that has changed after CEO Moshe took over."

    Disapproves of CEO

    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.
