    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.

    only problem was finding placement after the rotation

    Advice to Management

    only hire as much as you can find placement for, not more.
