      Pros

      The executive team is more relatable and down to Earth than any I’ve seen before. Even before Covid-19, Xilinx proved their dedication to employee wellbeing, healthy corporate culture, being a force of positive change in the world, and leading by example. With the introduction of a pandemic, they’ve been nothing but supportive in fostering a flexible work for home relationship with the employees.

      Cons

      Xilinx does set high expectations of their employees. There can be long days, a demanding workload, and an abundance of meetings. But they make up for this with very competitive salaries and a truly symbiotic relationship between employer and employee.

      Pros

      Really like the work environment, my boss, and the company is doing a great job on technology execution. Some truly world-class technology and applications are done by our customers. There was great attention to the mental health of employees through COVID (extra paid days off). I am very positive about the company close to a year into a year working here.

      Cons

      A bit of an older workforce. This has pro/cons but I think there is need for some younger employees (and female employees) to help balance our workforce and make sure that if some folks retire in the next 5-10 years we won't experience a "brain drain". Xilinx needs to fight to keep FPGA's relevant as a technology - there is a lot of upside but we need to make it easier to work with our products.

      Good company for digital design, choose team carefully, and avoid analog-mixed signal design teams.

      Pros

      -Relatively better salary in semiconductor domain, and work life balance may be a bit better. -Good company for digital design.

      Cons

      Specific to San Jose site. -Avoid mixed signal design team, there expectation might be unreasonable. They might not have any culture of mentoring and motivating employees, especially if you are in early career. (Mixed signal design is very small team in Xilinx). -You might come across scenarios, where a drunk director is shouting on a hardworking employee without a reason so please ignore, and focus on your work and career. Please do not let affect your career or health in any way. -Layoffs are quite common, and may face a bit stressful situation from time to time.
