    Poor work life balance, senior management gets rewards but engineers get nothing.

    I worked at Freescale Semiconductor

    Pros

    - Skilled and cooperative co-workers. It was a pleasure to work with my team. Smart guys.
    - My immediate manager was great. Skilled and tried to find career development opportunities
    - Great health insurance package

    Cons

    - Total disrespect from senior management. Previous CEO once even told an engineer at a public meeting, "If you want better benefits go work at the Post Office".
    - During recent IPO senior managers received stock options, but the workforce received..... key chains. Seriously.
    - No chance for advancement
    - No chance for career development
    - No raises or bonuses for years, even with strong annual reviews
    - Low pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They know what's needed by engineers, but outsourcing and importing H-1B workers removes incentives to treat people decently. They don't care because they don't have to care.
