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

      Pros

      Used to be a great place to work for. Great benefits and salary compared to many other companies.

      Cons

      Sadly went downhill. Staff were not appreciated and it was expected to work crazy hours. No career development unless you were taken under wing of someone who liked you and pushed you in front of higher management.

      Advice to Management

      Respect and appreciate employees. A company with unhappy and disloyal employees will be heading for disaster.

      I worked at Xilinx

      Pros

      It USED to be one of the best places to work for, because of its rich culture, respect for employees and very open and trustworthy work environment!

      Cons

      The culture has taken a huge U turn with the new management...

      Advice to Management

      - Revival of one of the old values, and a crucial one -- respect and appreciation of its most important asset i.e. Personnel! - Also Transparency in Communication needs to be revived.
