    Former Employee - Consultant in Gratkorn (Austria)

    I worked at NXP (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues, and lovely countryside. Nice cafeteria where you can have technical (and social) discussions over a cup of coffee. Easy parking.

    Cons

    No quality control. No standard methodolgy for firmware development. No technical library. No canteen. No documentation for software tools. Excessive use of low quality free software. Poor management. Actually there were far too many managers each with limited understanding of the project who frequently gave contradictory instructions. The limited project specificatioons did not cover my role. Software documentation was automatically produced by tools and was consequently of a very poor standard. After 2 months working on a demonstration project it was discovered that that a vital chip would need to be redesigned delaying the project. But the budget was fixed so they needed to let 1 consultant go - and they chose me as I was the only person in the team to have produced anything which was already working! The termination of my contract was not made in a very professional way, my project manager was not even informed, and they tried to claim that my code was defective - when in fact it had never been reviewed or tested.

    Advice to Management

    In case of budget problems, don't pretend that the poor contractor is to blame. The injustice will become obvious to the entire office and morale will suffer. Instead admit that a problem has arisen beyond your control. Everyone will understand and respect honesty. Invest in training courses for managers and technical staff. Invest in standard professional software tools with proper documentation. If you use incompatible software tools, expect incompatibilities in your products. Application notes containing example code (e.g. drivers) were frequently used to quick start coding. Whilst these examples may work in the restricted environment of a demonstration program, generally speaking they are not of sufficient quality and flexibilty for production. Application notes advertise your products. It's worth paying more attention.
