Pros

- Freescale has typical complement of employee benefits - Freescale has room for growth in extensive facilities in Austin, TX, and Phoenix, AZ, areas. - Although some product lines were discontinued, freescale still has several major product lines to offer many interesting and challenging jobs.

Cons

- Limited opportunities for lateral and/or interdepartmental employee initiated transfers. - Has an employee evaluation methodology that is sometimes brutal - rating and discharge requirements seem distant and unrelated to project needs, resulting in disruptions and slipped schedules.

Advice to Management

Management needs to re-evaluate the IT support program. Windows-based system support is outsourced and seems to receive acceptable response. The Linux-based systems, where most of the ASIC and IC development engineering is done, are supported internally. Unfortunately the internal support group is severely short-handed - so responsiveness is sometimes non-existant. Management needs to properly support this most critical part of the company.

    Pros

    Team is like a family which makes it harder to leave this company. Good PTO benefits, health, and other benefits

    Cons

    No career growth opportunities, even for top performers Lack of compensation now that times are better Too much relocating of resources to other countries for cheaper pay Good people are starting to leave Need new people w/ new visions to come in, company is in bit of a stale mate

    Advice to Management

    Treat others how you prefer to be treated Find away to retain top talent before they find other positions
