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

    Pros

    If you are a "yes" man there is opportunity to move up in the corporate ladder. The managers and VP's in my department don't like disagreement.

    Cons

    The company downsizes regularly. Employees create projects to look busy, Managers are clueless and lie to hit goals. Morale is at the lowest I've seen in my 10+ years.

    Advice to Management

    Take a course on business ethics

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

    Pros

    Very bright group of people to work with.

    Cons

    Direct communication seems to be a stumbling block for this company. It is not perceived as a positive thing and as a result, too many meetings, not enough clear decisions and actual plan of action.

    Advice to Management

    Say what you mean and mean what you say.
