    Pros

    The employees are extremely friendly and want to help others to be successful.
    They produce a great product.
    There are many opportunities to learn and try new things.
    For the most part most roles have a good work life balance.

    Cons

    The company is going through a transition. This is not uncommon for tech companies, but it is a bit disruptive to the work environment at this time.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if we could hear from the Sr. Execs more often on business priorities, customer feedback and the industry environment.

    Pros

    Everyone was very friendly and willing to teach during my first couple of months. Lots of really smart people that are great at what they do.

    Cons

    I was hoping that my project was more collaborative, as I would have loved to interact more with the employees at Xilinx.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to focus on incorporating more fun activities within the workplace so employees can get to know each other better.

    Pros

    I'm one of the current employees who is exceptionally pleased since Moshe joined the company. We made difficult business decisions and cut a lot of cancer out of our midst. Some good ones were lost as collateral damage, too but what is left is a far more cohesive unit that is executing very well. Not perfect, but very well.

    Exceptional technology
    Fantastic people

    Cons

    Driven by the bottom (financial) line - but then who isn't?
    We also need to really improve the career mobility and opportunities for lateral moves to keep things interesting. If you find and like your niche you are golden - but if you are the type of person that needs change regularly you will find that upward and lateral movement requires a good deal of drive and commitment on your own part to make it happen.

    Advice to Management

    Improve accuracy in sales forecasting for making investments and business decisions

    Pros

    Strong technical teams throughout the company. State of the art hardware and software products. Excellent customer relationships and good connections and support from the ecosystem partners. Good benefits, competitive pay.

    Cons

    Little opportunity to move positions between organizations, somewhat pigeon holed. Career development is identified as an issue, but difficult to find the time to really work on improving a specific area due to the overall workload.

    Advice to Management

    The current strategies are not yielding sufficient growth. Another set of ideas and potential products are needed.
