    I have been working at Xilinx full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The executive team is more relatable and down to Earth than any I’ve seen before. Even before Covid-19, Xilinx proved their dedication to employee wellbeing, healthy corporate culture, being a force of positive change in the world, and leading by example. With the introduction of a pandemic, they’ve been nothing but supportive in fostering a flexible work for home relationship with the employees.

    Cons

    Xilinx does set high expectations of their employees. There can be long days, a demanding workload, and an abundance of meetings. But they make up for this with very competitive salaries and a truly symbiotic relationship between employer and employee.

    Pros

    The work is interesting and fulfilling and my manager is invested in me.

    Cons

    Victor Peng is a slave to Wall Street. Expect compulsory vacation as a cost saving measure, and slashed bonuses while dividends are increased

    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.
