    Advice to Management

    Value the actual Software Engineers and not throw them in the bucket of computer science/hardware engineers who became software engineers because they aren't the same.

    Avoid the competitive cross team culture as it's hurting company progress. Focus on working together collectively as it breeds a culture of conflict.

    Allow more risk taking.

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NXP Semiconductors (Tempe, AZ) in January 2020.


    It was a nice phone interview where I spoke with the lab manager and a few of the senior engineers. Each had a turn to ask me about my resume and my experience and I had time with each individual to ask them any questions that I had.
