    Pros

    There is a good team environment and the ability to work with the latest tools and technologies. Managers are good and tend to look out for their team. Typically flexible work schedule. Pay is pretty competitive.

    Cons

    While not as great as it once was, it is still better than most. The company has become less employee driven and more top-down driven seemingly without regarding feedback from employees.

    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.

    I have been working at Xilinx

    Pros

    I read a lot of negative reviews with regards to the CEO and his staff. However, at a high level, they continue to invest into the company. While there are some long overdued off-shoring of US workers to cheaper locations, Xilinx continues to hire people in some key positions as well as non-key positions such as marketing in the US. Upper management is not as weak as what many employees feel they are. It is no longer the employee friendly company it used to be. It is now just a typical number driven American company. FPGA continues to be a cash cow product with little competition. Thus Xilinx as a company still has good strength. Existing employees are well compensated. This is both a good and a bad. Good because employees will find it difficult to leave the company. Bad because employees on average are 15-30% overpaid, impacting the company's bottom line.

    Cons

    Xilinx's main problem is its middle management, particularly its VPs and Senior Directors. While Moshe and his staff are not bad, their failure to recognize the weak management layer below them will lead their their own downfall. For years, the previous CEO, Wim, failed to build a strong middle management team. That was the main problem Moshe and his team had to fix. Unfortunately, they started by laying off workers instead addressing the management weakness. Common attributes of a typical Xilinx VP and Directors are: - Hiding true information about the product or the team's work. This is a long time Xilinx problem especially in the design teams. The middle management structure is designed to only report good news and hide bad news to upper management. - Focus on pointing out other teams' problems. - Ignoring their own team. I have not met a VP/Director in Xilinx who cares about making his own team more efficient - Fire fighting. This is a disease inside Xilinx. There are many Senior Directors who make a career out of creating fires so that they can look important. None of them know anything about managing their own team.
