    Pros

    The People... Xilinx has such a talented and collaborative group of people. The welcoming of diverse ideas, backgrounds and experiences is what makes Xilinx a great place to work.

    Cons

    Xilinx is having some growing pains. Excellent growth outlook, but some of the infrastructure elements have fallen behind. The goods is that people are coming together to make the necessary improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone is working very hard and things are moving very fast. Continue to take the time to celebrate successes along the way.

    I have been working at Xilinx full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    New CEO has laid out a clear strategy and is making smart business choices. If you want to work hard for a company that is about to take off, this is the place for you. Xilinx is in the sweet spot of market opportunity right now. People work hard - very hard - but they also play and don't take themselves too seriously at all. Company meetings feature CXOs dressed up like game show hosts - all execs very approachable. It's a straight shooting company that is striving to be best in class and is great fun too. Joining Xilinx was one of the best career decisions I've ever made.

    Cons

    Still some stodgy buildings, intranet out dated.

    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
