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

    Pros

    -Compensation is in line with the market.
    -Great work/life balance, if you complete your tasks and responsibilities, you have a great amount of freedom to take appointments, days off, leave early, or work from home if you like. I suppose this depends on the manager, but from what I have seen, this is fairly consistent throughout the organization.
    -Although organization is your typical corporate structure, it is very common to interact with very high level executives on a regular basis.
    -With the exception of some, everyone seems to work extremely hard and care about each other.
    -I love working for Xilinx and with some truly brilliant people.
    -Medical benefits are good
    -The ESPP although fairly standard in tech is amazing.
    -RSUs are granted almost semi-annually it seems which is amazing. This is a great way to give employees a vested interest in the companies success.
    -Generous vacation time, anyone employed over 1 year receives 17 paid vacation days that's 3.5 weeks!
    -Cafeteria (at San Jose headquarters) although not free is subsidized and puts out some great food, and caters in sushi on Tuesdays and Indian on Thursdays.

    Cons

    -Any con I have would be nitpicking, I have worked at companies who do not treat their employees right and absolutely know what that is like. Xilinx treats their employees the right way.
    -A set promotion track would be nice. In my specific role I do not see much room to take on any more responsibilities than I currently have, and do not know what other steps or new roles I could transition to in the future without crippling my current department.
    -It is a bit concerning with all of the consolidation this past year in the semi-conductor industry not knowing whether or not Xilinx will be the next casualty, and if that happens the redundancies created are to be a concern for future employment.
    -Although pay is at market, my last promotion was rather small in terms of salary increase. So much in fact that I will be asking for another one less than a year after my last promotion. Not that I am not grateful to receive a promotion and a raise while I know others are not as fortunate.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Xilinx is a great place to work and I am fortunate to be a part of the team. I would recommend more career development talks with the staff to make sure everyone knows what lies ahead or at least their options for the future.
