No opinion of CEO

Pros

- Freescale has typical complement of employee benefits
- Freescale has room for growth in extensive facilities in Austin, TX, and Phoenix, AZ, areas.
- Although some product lines were discontinued, freescale still has several major product lines to offer many interesting and challenging jobs.

Cons

- Limited opportunities for lateral and/or interdepartmental employee initiated transfers.
- Has an employee evaluation methodology that is sometimes brutal - rating and discharge requirements seem distant and unrelated to project needs, resulting in disruptions and slipped schedules.

Advice to Management

Management needs to re-evaluate the IT support program. Windows-based system support is outsourced and seems to receive acceptable response. The Linux-based systems, where most of the ASIC and IC development engineering is done, are supported internally. Unfortunately the internal support group is severely short-handed - so responsiveness is sometimes non-existant. Management needs to properly support this most critical part of the company.
