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

    Pros

    Smaller groups provides learning experience. No strong pros.

    Cons

    Total disregard to the concept of work life balance. Expectation is to be responsive during our of office hours as well. Few people can dominate the group. Tool infrastructure is obsolete. No acknowledgement for extra effort. Management is very fluid. Would not recommend to anyone.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Xilinx full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Somewhat decent co. to spend a few years at

    Cons

    Way too much politics, the co. is filled with ex-Intel management folks who can't seem to carve out a culture different from Intel, which sucks. Expectations are too high with no work-life balance for the most part. Employees are forced to work long hours with little reward or appreciation. Growth opportunities are zero for most employees.
