    Interesting work, great people, great CEO with clear direction for future.

    Cons

    Sold to NXP Semiconductor which has no clear direction for future.

    Advice to Management

    Selling to NXP was a bad idea. I understand it, however NXP had no clear direction for future except for what Freescale brought to the table. I am glad we are being purchased by Qualcomm.
