    Pros

    Freescale has very smart and dedicated employees. People are willing to work across organization lines to accomplish goals. Company is large enough to allow movement to different groups and develop new skills. Some teams are involved with cutting edge technology and bringing product from the laboratory to full production.

    Cons

    Upper management changes every three years which causes temporary chaos as strategic goals are revised. This is a company with world-wide design and manufacturing sites and world-wide customers. Be prepared to be on the phone early in the morning to talk with Europe and in the evening to talk with Asia.

    Advice to Management

    New management should have an open mind and take time to learn company before implementing major changes.
