Featured Review

I have been working at Altera

Pros

Lots of things to do.

Cons

Workload can pile up fast. Don't slack.

Current Employee - HW Development Manager

I have been working at Xilinx full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Very interesting work. Pay is excellent and the stock is rising with good outlook.

Cons

Fairly high stress and high expectations - you can't really forget about your work after work hours.
