    I worked at Xilinx

    Pros

    Few teams are very good by their internal work culture as well as the work they are doing.

    Cons

    Micro level management, feels like you are in school and some managers are like the head masters of the same. Employees in few department are constantly being watched and asked not to visit a person at their desk even if you have some work to do with them. Mobiles cannot be used and often you are forced to work on Saturdays.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop doing micro management and listen to the developers also do the review time to time there is no other way developers can know their weak points

    I worked at Xilinx full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Work culture Facilities No timing restrictions Less work pressure unless at the time of tapeout Professional team

    Cons

    Finance and HR team are worse. They dont reply to your emails. Very less benefits in your pay Less take home salary Recent hierarchical changes made it worse

    Advice to Management

    Please recruit able people and try to hold the old players. Lot of people have come with fake experience due to which an honest employee gets demotivated. If you can solve this Xilinx would be the best place to work. I still feel happy that I have worked in Xilinx but recent changes made me feel bad.
