    I have been working at Xilinx full-time

    Pros

    The problems are interesting and the technology has potential.

    Cons

    The culture can be toxic and you may be significantly undervalued.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and as first class citizens with a voice in decision making. Tell your employees the problems you want solved, not how to solve them. Proactively champion your employees for their good work.

    I worked at Xilinx full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people that you will do work with on a day to day basis are very kind, considerate and smart.

    Cons

    Other companies I’ve worked at invest much more in things to improve the employee experience, (food, facilities, events, activities, benefits and services). Stop talking about the gym in San Jose. It’s nice, but not the only thing that should be done. Most of the San Jose facilities are dark, dingy and outdated. Even the technology used to get your job done is not up to par. These things are important to employees around the world. Don’t disregard or minimize the potential impacts/benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people, they “make” the company and the products. Provide proper training for anyone that is managing/leading a team. If managers and leaders are not doing their jobs effectively help them or manage them out.

    I worked at Xilinx full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very supportive work environment. Good company culture

    Cons

    Company hires interns with no experience, however it only hires people with experience, as per its job listings. All jobs require atleast 5 years of experience.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down the number of new positions that require experience. Otherwise the only people left in your company would be employees waiting to retire
