    "Good for a while, until changes at the CEO and upper management level screwed everything up"

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Xilinx full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The senior management overhaul several years back set the wheels in motion for a major re-engineering effort (especially in software). There's extensive engineering talent, the company's silicon/software offerings right now are quite strong and the momentum we're gaining as a result is the real deal!

    Cons

    The reinvention has been a wild ride at times but overall a rewarding experience. Expect to work hard here - there is no free ride.
