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 Management

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 Management

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for technical growth

    Cons

    - Company declares that it supports work/life balance, but management does not. It is an international company, so off hours meetings are a give but management expects it every day on both ends of the day and still expects a full regular hours day, - mangers are prone to loud and frequent episodes of drama. really stifle participation and creativity

    Advice to Management

    - Listen to employees, - don't micro-manage - compensate for long and late hours
