    I have been working at Xilinx full-time

    Pros

    -ESPP Purchase Plan -Pay is Ok -Work-life balance

    Cons

    -Internal Politics -Work gets pushed around often and gets fixed by whoever it lands on rather than the parties responsible -Seniors practice "secret knowledge" mentality by keeping domain knowledge from you -Crappy code cause of seniors who dun give a damn and do it to "keep their jobs" -Hacks done because of laziness rather than doing the right thing -Dated technologies -Bad Managers (Some only know how to... shout at people without providing solutions)

    Advice to Management

    -Fire your senior software devs that messed up rather than putting them on new technologies and projects due to their seniority -Stop hiring 'foreign talents' from no name univerisities in India or Phillipines -Bother to put your developers thru programming tests rather than just hearing the nice sounding techological jargon they have to say

    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    If you meet boss regard himself as the king, it will be a disaster. The manager want to control your life, ask you to work on the weekend, attend meeting in early morning or late evening. Even worse, when I want I have personal vacation, my boss told me “it seems your are rich. I will reduce your package and salary” Be careful, choose a good team and a good boss.

    Cons

    The pressure is less than other Asian technology company

    Advice to Management

    Watch out your managers, directors, and sr. director. Unreasonable requirement and high pressure management for the guy who has working experience for decades is not a smart way.
