    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Xilinx full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great high tech focused company with exciting new things to work on often. Flexible work hours and vacation policies.

    Cons

    Sometimes too focused on the race for the next node and not focused on real innovation. It gets really political at the top, some decision are made without data and more for political and personal benefits rather than the good of Xilinx.

    Advice to Management

    Rationalize the innovations so that you do not go the way of so many companies who didn't stop to think and just continued doing what they always did.

    I worked at Xilinx full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Fair pay and good benefits

    Cons

    People don’t count, very political and exclusive, no loyalty everyone is trying to climb the corporate ladder and stepping on any one they can. Executive management is arrogant and that trickles down to middle management.

    I worked at Xilinx full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    GREAT PEOPLE! Small team, challenging, hands on, collaboration is good, focussed on revenue

    Cons

    HR and MGMT squeezing employees too much for costs/EPS! Very tactical, too short term focused, performance does not get reflected accurately in reviews, too much CYA as there is very heavy upper management involvement and intervention in tactical and strategic actions.

    Advice to Management

    Start valuing employees more, leave the functions to their job without intervening at every level

    Pros

    Market leaders, good technology,

    Cons

    Top down ONLY, no employee development, its all about the business and nothing about the people

    Advice to Management

    Learn to value the human collateral you have in your employees at all levels not just Directors and above.

    "Good for a while, until changes at the CEO and upper management level screwed everything up"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Product Marketing Manager in San Jose, CA

      I worked at Xilinx full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Good products, market leader, convenient location

      Cons

      Constant layoffs, no trust between employees and management

      Advice to Management

      Stop having so many layoffs - build a good team and then keep it in place to get the job done

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Xilinx full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      WAS a great company to work for. There was a great feeling of camaraderie and you worked with smart, enthusiastic people every day.

      Cons

      Current management seems to be a clique. If you are in the clique things are great, if not you will eventually get fired in a quarterly cost cutting move.

      Advice to Management

      Get a clue. You are driving a once great place to work into a very sub-ordinary company. Your competition will continue to outpace you because they get it.

      I worked at Xilinx

      Pros

      Great products and technology. Many talented and friendly employees. Promotes work-life balance. Depending on where you live, the unusual location can make for a good commute traveling opposite the rush-hour traffic.

      Cons

      Employees treated as disposable tools by the Gavrielov regime; there has been a never-ending series of layoffs/RIFs throughout the company since their arrival three years ago. Cuts made without regard for employee talent and contribution. Steadily moving engineering, manufacturing, and support functions to India and Singapore. Stingy with raises and promotions; employees should just be grateful that they have a job....

      Pros

      a. Location: In the valley b. Legacy mainstream products work well in the field c. Customers are buffered from the effects of the mismanagement of the last few years d. Cafeteria

      Cons

      a. "Mean"agement will grin and stab you - (if you are thinking of a marketing job, look elsewhere) b. There is no work-life balance since Moshe and his SVPs took control - (bring Wim out of retirement please!) c. Poor job security - if you're not one of the favored employees d. Marketing is clueless about what customers want and management will force their will on the customer e. Performance management culture came...

      Advice to Management

      Leave or ask the board to sell Xilinx to a stronger company. It is not sufficient to keep increasing the cash dividend to shareholders. Xilinx has stalled compared to Altera, to which we have lost market share since 2010. Altera also has the lead in 40nm which is going to lead to market loss in the coming years as well.

      I have been working at Xilinx

      Pros

      Working level people are very cooperative and helpful. Xilinx has a legacy as a great company. There are a number of great thinkers remaining at Xilinx.

      Cons

      Our culture has shifted dramatically from legacy CEOs. There are the elite, and then the rest. The rest are unimportant. People who helped build the company are unimportant. Innovation, and vision dramatically reduced. We count beans, rather than innovate. The business is moving away from its core values and what made it successful in the past.

      Advice to Management

      At a fundamental level, they are intelligent, but don't seem to understand the Field Programmable Gate Array business. They do not seem to embrace the business initiatives that made us successful in the past. Quit counting beans and put some money into R&D. They do not value the culture created by Bernie and Ross.
