Quality Assurance Specialist (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – July 12, 2018
It was very easy to learn lots of new procedures and product while working here. I moved around in many areas while employee here. I moved from production to management. I also worked in the training department . We wrote new produces for the operators. Trained new employees, test the operators. Great place to work.
An Excellent Learning Ground for Software Fundamentals
Senior Engineering Manager (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – July 2, 2018
Great people to work with and a professional environment. Also many projects that deal with fundamental compiler technology that makes it very interesting. Typically promotes from within therefore there is growth opportunity.
Director of Human Resource Operations (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – April 20, 2018
A new culture is being born and the new CEO is not making the shift smoothly...changes are quick and immediate. Everyone seems to be stepping over each other and poor senior management changes are being made.
Used to be really good, but not so good (for me) now.
FA Staff Engineer/ SEM/EDS Specialist (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – April 12, 2018
18 years ago when I was hired at Xilinx it was a great place to work. But about 10 years ago Xilinx stopped doing the job that I was hired for (SEM/EDS). They tried to train me to do a different job, but I never really liked that job and I never became really good at it. So when Xilinx offered my a chance to retire and get a nice package, I took advantage of that.
New Product Introduction Engineer (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – April 4, 2018
Xilinx is a great company to work for. Their products is for the future. The culture had changed from the top 5 company to work for. The flexibility of FPGA is always the best option for customer. There use to have big number of engineers loved to work so much that the CEO had to remind them to take vacation.
Director, Partnerships Strategic Marketing (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – March 29, 2018
New CEO is making major changes to company corporate strategy and direction, and realigning resources and budgets to match. Time will tell if the new focus is the right one, it certainly is more aggressive and focused than prior management.
Superior technology, excellent NPI execution. Great benefits, nice location for reasonable commute time.
Stagnant to slow growth, challenged to release technologies to reach SW market.
Needs a breakout growth strategy that is clearly communicated and funded.
Director in Sales (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – March 28, 2018
Overall strategy is not clear, needs a breakout growth strategy that is clearly communicated and funded. Great people to work with, a lot of new business people, that will take time to settle in and get aligned.
GTC Specialist (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – January 15, 2018
It is an industry leader in product, but not an industry leader on job culture. Ie depending on who you work for working remotely will be frowned upon. Seems like workers who do not perform get to skate by until there is a layoff or reorg which can be frustrating to those who are performers. Also, advancement opportunities do not seem to happen.
Team work and collaborating is great. Having a good team experience with clearly defined roles is good.
on site gym, cafe, team work and collaboration, work life balance
Low pay, no career advancement, no flex hour/remote work
