    I have been working at Xilinx

    Pros

    Leading technology and FPGA product company

    Cons

    I have been working at Xilinx full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The executive team is more relatable and down to Earth than any I’ve seen before. Even before Covid-19, Xilinx proved their dedication to employee wellbeing, healthy corporate culture, being a force of positive change in the world, and leading by example. With the introduction of a pandemic, they’ve been nothing but supportive in fostering a flexible work for home relationship with the employees.

    Cons

    Xilinx does set high expectations of their employees. There can be long days, a demanding workload, and an abundance of meetings. But they make up for this with very competitive salaries and a truly symbiotic relationship between employer and employee.

    Pros

    They are very good with technology. There are always challenging problems to solve. The people working there are skilled and it is a good work environment.

    Cons

    Management does a good job with short term planning. Their long term planning is like a leaf on the wind. It is amazing that they do as well as they do with the number of direction changes they constantly make.
