I have been working at Freescale Semiconductor full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

It's a steady paycheck. A few pool and foosball tables have been set up around the campus, and the on-site cafeteria and gym are very nice.

Cons

Work-life balance is terrible. Chronically understaffed and overburdened, with a corporate initiative to hire nothing but fresh-out-of-college from here on out. Management expects full production quality and quantity, but only provides pilot resources. Critical vacancies remain unfilled, and teams are fracturing. Every personnel loss stretches us closer to the break point.

Advice to Management

Recognize the experience that is leaving the company because the working conditions are getting so bad. New paint and fancy walkways do nothing to improve morale, and asking us to train new-hires in addition to an already maxed out workload is straining us to breaking.

    I have been working at Freescale Semiconductor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Freescale has decent compensation, good benefits, challenging problems, and often you get great colleagues to work with, bright and experienced.

    Cons

    Depending on where you are in the company and your management, a job can be great or a slow-motion disaster. The company has been in austerity mode for a long time, shedding people, just now working on getting fresh blood. Parts of the company are way over-managed, underfunded and understaffed.
