    Pros

    Great Legacy, One of the few companies that invests in research and innovation, good tools and training etc

    Cons

    Very little market focus, poor management and cultural differences between US and European Management...Equities awarded to a few ....

    Advice to Management

    They are set in their ways. Develop people with technical abilities than promote from within the company.

    Pros

    Er is een interessante reeks produkten.
    NXP doet het op beurs goed, dat geeft mogelijkheden.
    Directeur Rick Clemmer heeft goede visie, die focus geeft op winstgevende activiteiten.

    Cons

    Salarisgroei dmv periodieken is mini-minimaal. Schaal 80 t/m top van het bedrijf krijgt enorme bonussen, maar doorsnee medewerker daar wordt vooral op bezunigd. Niet al het middenmanagement voegt echt iets toe, maar vult wel aardig zijn/haar zakken, terwijl de technische mensen het echte werk doen. De software infrastructuur, daar is in het verleden ook teveel op bezunigd.

    Grootste probleem is : Er is veel teveel werk, veel teveel onderwerpen, gewenste resultaten in verhouding tot het aantal technische medewerkers dat er is. Sub-investment is aan de orde van de dag. Doordat NXP een te klein deel van zijn verdiensten steekt in technische innovatie, is het dubieus of huidige groeicurve van beurswaarde wel jaren vol te houden is, of dat m.n. korte termijn financiele plaatje wordt opgepoetst.

    Advice to Management

    Breng meer balans tussen ambities en aantal technische mensen dat beschikbaar is. Laat alle medewerkers eerlijk delen in het financiele welvaren van het bedrijjf.

    Pros

    The people I work with are dedicated and caring.
    The Freescale merger will give NXP a better presence in the USA
    A dead weight VP has been let go in San Jose
    The technology NXP supports has a strong market and they support top names in the industry

    Cons

    Europe manages the US with an iron fist and micromanages everything
    Zero communication from Executive staff, most news is spread by the grapevine / rumors
    Little to no movement in the company
    Cheap when it comes to infrastructure or tech tools to do our jobs
    Hiring freezes are constant - just not widely announced
    Had to fight for every penny when I joined
    Work from home is not supported even though Managers often WFH themselves

    Advice to Management

    Stop the micromanaging of US operations, reinvest in better support tools, communicate at least monthly to all employees about what is going on! The lack of information comes off as a lack of trust. Ego's run the company way too much
