    a bureaucratic company with extremely slow execution, lots of office and site politics and poor management team.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Greater Noida (India)

    ProsSalary is on par with any semi conductor company in any region.
    in pockets they work on latest technologies.
    one can have good work life balance orienting to very less execution or work pressures.

    Conscompany has lots of politics at all levels of management. namely the swedish teams Lund and French teams from NXP in Grenoble, LeMans.
    Lots of inefficiency in the system towards getting things done or execution. too many hands at most levels -- too few to work and too many ready to guide or lead.
    Poor visibility from senior management down to BU level managers. Every one working on a day to day basis to do whatever it takes to save job - not necessarily towards what is needed by customers.
    This company badly needs a 360 degree review mecahism. currently its very difficult to get info or cooperation from teams at different site or different BU. Engineers just work towards what their manager likes and too little professanilism in the company.

    Advice to Senior Managementas long as the french and swedish sites have employee job security, as long as the senior management team right from didier Laqmouche to his SVP's and BU managers lack outside industry experience, there is little scope of getting anything done. With major customers pulling off even from modem and platform products, thereis no hope for this company to survive. Sell and shutdown the remaining parts of this titanic ship Please.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
