I worked at Freescale Semiconductor

Pros

Interesting technology (several different processor architectures) and a chance to work with people around the world (India, China, Israel and the U.S.) Many very strong technical people.

Cons

Freescale was an extremely bureaucratic organization. It was very difficult to get management approval for even small expenditures and the engineering team had a host of program and product managers from different business units asking them independently for status on a daily or hourly basis.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

GIve people more autonomy and control over their work and budgets and have fewer people able ot say no to new initiatives.

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits with high starting paid time off of 4+ weeks. Management good for working with employees, overall friendly environment.

    Cons

    Constant cost cutting efforts, layoffs loom much of the time and general attitude of employees makes completing tasks difficult at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share additional information with employees regarding high level strategy. Constant under-resourcing and fire-fighting are driving away good talent and leaving frustrated staff.
