    I worked at Xilinx

    Pros

    They are (were?) leaders in the field, so if you are into FPGAs, this is the place to work. Colleagues were really nice guys.

    Cons

    Not very exciting work. Projects were not really interesting. Not very flexible in terms of working hours. Awful "internal marketing" strategies (which might be common for US-based companies) of very low aesthetics, which made you feel as if you were a low IQ super bowl spectator. OK, you do not expect from senior management of such companies to be aesthetically very refined,...

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

    Pros

    Still many good people working there and there's reasonable work/life balance. The pay was pretty good for top performers. Working there under Wim was the best experience of my career. The products are good and exciting to work with.

    Cons

    Corporate culture was completely trashed by Moshe and the managers he brought in. The company that Bernie built and Wim even improved upon has been ruined for its employees and customers. The culture that is pervasive now is one of politics and back stabbing. The values of honesty and transparency have been eliminated by senior management by making employees fearful. Speaking...

    Advice to Management

    The advice I have is actually for the board, because I don't believe that Moshe is capable of fixing the problems he's created. Bring in someone who can drive innovation while maintaining respect for employees and customers. Employees who fear their leaders are not more productive, but rather less.

      I have been working at Xilinx full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Nothing great about the company

      Cons

      Attrition rate is too high. On an average 5 people leave every month. It feels to be working in a SME or even lower rather than in an MNC. Senior management is more focused on cost saving rather than providing appropriate employee benefits. There’s too much politics here, full of people who are loud and show-off more than what they are actually doing. Quiet, hard working people...

      Advice to Management

      Do something creative ASAP rather than just cost savings. Try to work like a US MNC rather than a local SME.

      I have been working at Xilinx

      Pros

      - Salary and benefits are good. - There are some very good technical people around to learn from. - Interesting technology with real potential. - You are given a lot of latitude to organize your work and time as you see fit.

      Cons

      - The senior management team is very weak. Some are self-obsessed to the point of clinical narcissism. - Teamwork between employees and between teams is now very poor. This aspect has degraded significantly since the new management regime moved in. - Excessive (and increasing) cronyism and politics. - Very long hours with little recognition or opportunity to progress...

      Advice to Management

      You must start listening to employees and customers. Act on the feedback from the employee survey. Judging by the comments made here and the CEO approval rating, it seems that some urgent action is needed.

      I have been working at Xilinx

      Pros

      Reasonable benefits (a remnant from the good times) The technology is exciting and (for now) Xilinx is the market leader Individual teams have some terrific people

      Cons

      In many cases, the employee relationship with senior management is very dysfunctional Way too many directors/senior directors/VPs brought in from outside No clear direction and ownership is I'll defined Projects seem to be over managed until deadlines are missed, then it's a frenzy

      Advice to Management

      Xilinx cleaned ranks at the lower level and bloated senior management. That killed moral. It's hard to see how this organization can significantly improve without a reorg at the senior level. If not Moshe, then a lot of other senior directors and VPs should be let go.

      I worked at Xilinx

      Pros

      When Xilinx gets a better senior management team, maybe they will climb out of the hole that they are in today.

      Cons

      The current senior management is terrible. Where is Wim and Bernie when you need them? 2009, 2010 was like a huge experiment to Moshe and his cronies. We were kicking Altera's tail until they current management took over.

      Advice to Management

      They need to accept the fact that Altera now has surpassed Xilinx. The customers that Xilinx lost will likely very difficult to win back. From this point forward, if Moshe and company don't start listening to suggestions, the board will eventually ask them to start packing.
