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

    Pros

    Nice cafeteria, large cubicles, that's about it.

    Cons

    Very hostile work environment. Micromanagement is rampant. You are basically considered a slave for them to use as they please. Yelling and belittling is the norm in meetings. Avoid this place like the plague.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees as humans

    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 Most of the San Jose facilities are dark, dingy and outdated.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.
