Xilinx Employee
in Longmont, CO

"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."

"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."

Software Engineer
in Longmont, CO

"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."
