I have been working at Xilinx full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The company is one one of the most profitable in SIlicon Valley, after only Google and Apple. It is stable business, and is geared towards innovation. Tries to develop leading edge FPGAs. Recently created world's largest chip. FPGAs are usually also the early adopters of smaller geometries ( now at 28 nm)..

Cons

The company is finding itself at a juncture where a lot of computation has shifted to mobile. Due to power and form factor, it is harder for FPGAs to penetrate that market. However, it still continues to be in the backbones of the mobile networks, which is good.
Since it is not selling directly to consumers, there is also much less hype about the company. Ordinary Joes won't knwo about he company.

Advice to Management

Need to develop a vision for future products, how they will be used, and so on.
