I worked at Freescale Semiconductor full-time (More than 5 years)
Good interaction with highly skilled designers in a friendly project environment, good benefits with appropriate salary level, challenger projects, good roadmap of products.
Sometimes the lack of transparency between the communication of the top management with the employees was the cause of demotivation of the team
Advice to Management
Could be more opportunities for intra company job rotation
I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Freescale Semiconductor.
Get a phone interview after career fair. Ask about my motivation, some background checks on device driver programming and algorithm. No detail technical question asked. Then some behavior questions about what is your next 5 year plan.
