    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.
