    Current Employee - Software Engineer IV in Tempe, AZ

    I have been working at Freescale Semiconductor full-time (more than 10 years)


    The quality of the engineers is top-notch. Not a lot of big company nonsense. The right people get promoted. Wide variety of technology to work on. Lots of international employees makes life interesting. Financial performance has been excellent for the last two years. Balance sheet is improving rapidly after ridiculous LBO in '06.


    Some groups not as well run as others. You will work a lot. A lot of effort spent coordinating across the globe. Very international workforce. Layoffs and off-shoring are a reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't get complacent. Don't assume high-flying business groups will continue to pull insane revenues.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Freescale Semiconductor in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The guys didn't seem to take the interview seriously. He actually said that he didn't know the process for the internship applicants. Also, when the info session of the company was at my college, they didn't seem excited at their jobs at all.
