    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at NXP Semiconductors full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, good middle management. Great place to start your career and gain experience.

    Cons

    Unstable upper management seems to be out for themselves. They enjoy extra bonuses while telling everyone else why they have to tighten their belts. Hard to make it to retirement without getting eliminated. Best be looking for another place by the time you're in your mid-40's and still employable, or be able to retire before age 59.

    Advice to Management

    Begin thinking long term for good of all in the company, rather than short term stock gains.

    I worked at NXP Semiconductors full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Technologically deep
    - Getting to be a strong business oriented culture - thanks to PE ownership
    - Focusing on markets which fit the european mindset now
    - Good people orientation (till 2010 - not sure now)
    - Good work life balance (till 2010 - not sure now)

    Cons

    - Europe centric decision making, lots of power point paper tigers
    - PE ownership has destroyed a lot of the old culture and values of the company
    - Any cuts always get made in USA first and Europe second
    - PEs constantly meddle at corporate HQ with new ideas and initiatives leading to lots of overload

    Advice to Management

    Think less about returns to PE and more about long term future of the company and its people
