    I worked at Freescale Semiconductor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good interaction with highly skilled designers in a friendly project environment, good benefits with appropriate salary level, challenger projects, good roadmap of products.

    Cons

    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
