    I have been working at Xilinx full-time

    Pros

    Used to have great work life balance and stability until the recent CEO changes.

    Cons

    - Round of restructuring removed people that have been loyal to the company for 20 years - Brought in new leadership that left after a month in the position, leaving the teams in limbo - Very old school company: internal processes with HR and recruiting is ridiculously slow. - Big boys club. Almost all leadership are white males.

    Advice to Management

    - Get your act together. It's unbecoming for an old company like Xilinx to have so much internal drama because of new leadership. - Diversify your leadership team.
