Approves of CEO

I have been working at Xilinx as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Had freedom to work in my way - I was given a lot of freedom with respect to organizing my work and my methods of getting the work done.
Got to use technologies I preferred
Great team and mentor, welcomed me to the team and supported me throughout.

Cons

Software developers are not the most important people at Xilinx. Being a predominantly semi-conductor company hardware people with a EE are obviously the most influential people.

Advice to Management

Please bring in more interns and try to convert them to full time.

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

    Pros

    Established business, but shrinking slowly. Good profit margin. decent salary for semiconductor industry.

    Cons

    Extremely political environment. Lots of internal conflicts and clouts due to poor quality new software being pushed out to customers. Good people are let go. Company spent hundreds of millions of dollars and trusted some incapable people to develop it. Now it is struggling with the mistake and punishing the customers by forcing them to adopt new software that is not complete or stable, and is worse than old one. Instead of focusing on necessary areas, company spent big money on this useless piece, while the competition is surging ahead in key areas.

    This will finish the company..

    Advice to Management

    Focus on customer needs. Focus on employees.
