    Current Employee - Senior Staff Engineer in Albuquerque, NM
    Current Employee - Senior Staff Engineer in Albuquerque, NM
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits.
    Good facilities.
    Good work/life balance if you're in the right project.
    You get to work on interesting, cutting edge technology.

    Cons

    Everyone is wondering whether they will have a job tomorrow. The layoffs to prop up the profit margin have destroyed the once impressive Xilinx culture.

    It sucks working with people 12.5 timezones away you can't understand on crappy IP phones knowing that they will eventually get your job.

    Advice to Management

    You will lose many once dedicated employees when the economy improves. So when that time comes (and it will), my advise to you is to stand clear of the doorway.
