    I have been working at Xilinx full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great team in the Legal Dept. Co-workers all get along, no abrasive personalities, regular team events/meetings scheduled to help maintain unity. General Counsel is very approachable. Xilinx itself is a great place to work - performers are awarded.

    Cons

    Legal Department is small, not a lot of room for advancement or growth into new areas.

    I have been working at Xilinx full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting work, very collaborative work environment and great work/life balance. Managers and executives genuinely care about employees and value their contributions.

    Cons

    Some parts of campus are a little dated. I wish the company was better known, but the company's products aren't consumer facing so that's expected.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    There is a lot of work to do, and we get to learn. Since the company size is medium, there is more recognition. Team and upper management is very approachable and open to questions.

    Cons

    nothing as such for now

    Pros

    - Great training programs
    - Realistic expectations of college graduates
    - Brilliant people who make you want to give 110% effort
    - Free (and really awesome) gym at the San Jose location!
    - Good corporate values and work/life balance for most organizations that I've observed.
    - In my case, many opportunities to take on responsibility and show your skill/effort. Hard work is appreciated and managers know how to show it (speaking for myself and several colleagues I've spoken to).
    - Good breakfast/lunch at relatively low cost
    - Good health benefits and 401(k) plan
    - Higher than average time off for a tech company (starting with 15 days = 3 weeks!)

    Cons

    - Pay is average (perhaps even below average) for my role
    - Unsure of whether Xilinx may get bought by a larger semiconductor company since the industry has been consolidating recently.

    Advice to Management

    - Keep doing what you're doing, be very clear and transparent as to what's happening with the company's performance.
