I have been working at Xilinx full-time (More than a year)

Pros

1. At Xilinx we have access to the latest technologies in the industry. The race with our major competitor cause both companies to invovate.
2. Simulation and verfication first methodology. Not proof by test chip mentalty.
3. compensation is reasonable (Given the trajectory of the stock).
4. Good benefits.

Cons

1. Slow decision process. Decisions made by commity.
2. Big companies often we have too many meetings. Xilinx is no exception here. Spawns from decision by commity
3. No on-site gym

Advice to Management

streamlining the decision making process would provide Engineering with more time to deliver better products.

    I worked at Xilinx as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very high tech environment with lots of smart coworkers. Open Source tools and Linux workstations are also allowed! The work environment felt productive, fun, and collaborative. They have a great selection of food in their cafe.

    Cons

    The complexity and learning curve for some of the ISE tools was pretty steep starting out. In my brief time there, I had enough time to learn just the basics.
