Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Staff Technical Writer

I have been working at Xilinx full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

We get to be on the cutting edge of new products and make a direct contribution to the company's success. Xilinx has matured as a company, and while it demands a lot of dedication of its employees... and management, it also gives us a great place to work and some really interesting challenges that keep everyone engaged. The corporate values of Excellence, Teamwork, and Accountability are visible in every part of the organization. There are a lot of long-tenured employees here who have stayed because of the company and culture.

Cons

The company is spread out globally, which makes some collaboration between offices difficult. There are sometimes 3-4 (or more) time zones needed in a meeting, and it can be difficult to schedule at... times that work for everyone.

Advice to Management

Keep investing in the employees and their growth. It's working!

I have been working at Synopsys full-time for less than a year

Pros

Good environment, comparable to Amazon, Microsoft, Adobe (not Google). Pretty good work-life balance and the perks/bonuses.

Cons

Team do not often work together, this is mine understanding, others might have different opinion. HR engagement part is very poor. Synopsys does not celebrate any festival in India offices and no... engagement activities as well. There are outings though which do not require engagement from HR (only admin person help is needed).

Advice to Management

HR team should be very active among the employees and should encourage a happy and desirable environment. Major festivals should be celebrated, more of in-house engaging activities should be planned... to improve inter-team interaction.
