No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Work Life balance has always been a Pro at Xilinx. Employees treat each other with respect. Compensation and benefits are ok.

Cons

The focal reviews that take place every six months create unnecessary sense of competition that ends up working against teamwork and culture. There is also no focus on employee career development.

Advice to Management

Work on employee career development

    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.
