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

    Pros

    Salary was top shelf, but has certainly leveled off.
    A leader in their industry.
    The company is profitable and has money to spend.

    Cons

    It is simply a grind. Do what you are told, hit deadlines, perform better than your peers, do it all again next review period. Do same thing next review period, except better. Impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Current pace is unsustainable. Good people are leaving due to unrealistic work environment.

    I have been working at Xilinx full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, great location, strong relationships at the worker level. Employees at the lower levels genuinely help each other. The technology is cutting edge.

    Cons

    Management is focused on cost cutting and does not value employees. Culture and values are non-existent under the new leadership. Disagreeing with management and constructive feedback are not tolerated. Only a select few people are rewarded and the performance management system is archaic. Many employees work in fear but are very loyal so they tolerate the stressful working conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Remember why the company became successful - the employees. Learn from other successful leadership teams at other companies on how to earn respect and trust. Focus on growing the company, not just cost cutting. Pay attention to feedback and talk to actual workers, not just yourselves.
