    Pros

    Average to above employees. Mostly good people but lack the killing instinct to succeed. Great technology, good to stay and learn for 3-5 years. Good balance between work and life. Well protected due to patents and hence the take it easy attitude.

    Cons

    Management is very conservative. No desire to break in to new markets. Need to suck up to management for moving up.

  3. Great place to work with some industry defining tech

    Pros

    XIlinx is a company that en cashes the candidate situation. not always good for the company.
    generally the hiring happens based on local candidature, to encash as much as possible

    Cons

    dirty politics at Sr management level..
    micor management of Sr management in every small issue
    too much work pressure
    very less people get to do quality work at Hyderabad-- dont get in to hiring trap

    Advice to Management

    control dirty politics and reward to the people who work for company.. not for persons.

    Pros

    Work load is medium, not very high. An efficient 8 hrs per day is sufficient.

    Learning is limited, since it is an established company and the design is reused across the generations

    Bring more innovations

    Pros

    -- Company stability
    -- Work quality ( complexity wise )
    -- Compensation
    -- Work Life balance

    Cons

    -- Not much just the typical politics ( it is so ubiquitous in industry that it is no more a Con). I call it a different skill set that everyone must acquire to survive industry.
