    Pros

    Hard working people, Very pleasant to work with, great fitness center, reasonable amount of work (challenging but doable, and most of the people are parents, have kids and want togo home to see them so very rarely do you have to work long hours, as long as you are focused during the day)

    Cons

    cafteria food choices aren't the best, and while the collaboration is there amongst teams to get the work doen, you're sitting in cubicles which no direct access to talk to someone unless you walk to their cube, so for me it was off-putting

    Advice to Management

    get rid of cubes, or makes the walls a lot shorter, make it more of a collaborative and open environment

    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!

    I worked at Xilinx full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    While I was there, Flexible hours and good middle management. The profit sharing was also nice. Some cool technology and conference trips

    Cons

    While I was there no 401kmatch, they said no layoffs and then a month later there was a massive layoff which the savings where given to the executives as bonuses

    Advice to Management

    Things changed significantly when moshe became CEO, when I left things felt to be going in the wrong direction. The bottom line doesn't matter if you treat people badly
