    Former Employee - Senior Process Engineer III in Austin, TX

    I worked at Freescale Semiconductor full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Six Sigma and lean training. They attempt to use Kaizens to address major problems. They no longer charge for parking in the parking garages.

    Cons

    Too many non degreed old Motorola operators and technicians in management roles that impede fixing problem root causes. Unless you are an old Motorola employee you are treated as an outsider. Freescales entire documentation data set is decades out of date and no longer pertinent to the current manufacturing operation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire all of the old Motorola crew and stop fixing the manufacturing problems by hiring experts for one or two year time periods then laying them off.
