    Great company with amazing potential

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Singapore (Singapore)

    I worked at Xilinx as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    This company comes out with great products. Flexible work hours as long as you can put in an 8hr shift everyday. My work involved a lot of testing and so spent a lot of time in the labs.

    Cons

    The company has a very hierarchical structure with very little interaction between levels. As an intern, I could interact with anyone in the firm apart from my team and the other employees on the same floor

    I worked at Xilinx full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fair pay and good benefits

    Cons

    People don’t count, very political and exclusive, no loyalty everyone is trying to climb the corporate ladder and stepping on any one they can. Executive management is arrogant and that trickles down to middle management.

    Current Employee - Engineer in Singapore (Singapore)

    I have been working at Xilinx full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Get to work with very capable colleagues.
    - Manager was very approachable.
    - Flexible working environment, no micro-managing and given the freedom to find our own solutions.

    Cons

    - slow growth
    - limited learning opportunities outside assigned tasks due to tight schedules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - There is a little bit of a feeling of a disconnect between senior management and junior level employees.
    - Management does not seem very transparent about retrenchments and reorganisations. This does not go well with employees.
