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

    Pros

    Great technology, industry leadership, get to work with a lot of very talented people with loads of industry experience. We get to serve a very diverse marketplace and get involved with a lot of interesting applications. Lots of training opportunities.

    Cons

    Too much "big company" overhead in HR, sales incentive plans, career development, etc. We spend too much time dealing with extraneous tasks that don't really make a difference to our products or end customers.

    Advice to Management

    Let us do our actual jobs, get rid of the bogus review processes, HR overhead, and confusing incentive plans. Let lower level managers be managers and make their own decisions.
