"Its a good company to learn new technology and gain experience with future research. Managers give chance to become completely independent."
"It is not good to comment about the current employer"
"It's a very good company in San Jose"
"I've been working for Xilinx, Inc. for 6 months already since they have acquired my past employer called Solarflare Communications, Inc. I am part of the transition team and contracted to move all of the operations to Xilinx's Singapore office."
"Xilinx is amazingly archaic in the way it goes about building it's software products. They use a home-grown make system that makes simple things difficult and moderately complicated things enormously frustrating. Because you spend so much time fighting anemic infrastructure, you're always behind schedule."
"Amazing place to work with a lot of opportunity to learn"
"Unstable place to work at"
"Xilinx was a great place to work. Great culture, great leadership, innovative products, interesting projects. Change of management in the mid 2000s caused some major disruptions, leading many engineers like myself to seek green pastures. My rating is 5 stars for the early years, and 2 to 3 for the latter years."
"I have liked working with the company a lot."
"Great technology. Currently, the company is adrift at the C-level making it difficult to execute plans since the direction shifts so often."
"Good company to work for."
"I worked at Xilinx from 1999 (hired in the midst of the tech bubble) until 2012.For the first eight years it was a fantastic, if often chaotic place to work. Then, a new CEO arrived, and the place became full of political intrigue and inchoate expectations. My experience in this regard may have been due to being in a team that wasn't a part of the core technology produced by the company, so I can't speak to whether or not being in another group would have been a different experience."
"It is very interesting environment."
"A good company but the workload is a little too heavy.The ratio of engineers to VP is a little low and the employees are a little burned out. But anyway, the company is doing better and better."
