    Paid Time Off (Vacation and Sick Leave) pretty good. Challenging job but in a good way.

    - NXP still operates in organizational silos.

    Advice to Management

    - Culture and People are critical assets.
    - BoD - Continue the changes/evolution of the MT, or bring back Gregg and give him a shot.

    I have been working at NXP Semiconductors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Days off from the wafer fab's robotic monotony help one recoup "for a few days".

    Cons

    If you're good at 90% of your duties, your super only knows the 10% that is lacking. He will probably not have his facts straight about that 10% either. I seriously doubt any NXP production supervisors hold degrees in management.

    Advice to Management

    Don't believe that draconian management of worker-drones builds a better world.

    Pros

    Mostly talented employees, good benefits, flexible on work hours, interesting products

    Cons

    very centralized and bureaucratic organization, matrix organization causes early morning work meetings with Europe and late evening meetings with Asia. Most engineering work is being shifted to Asia. Morale is pretty low.

    Advice to Management

    Relax the consolidation and centralization of decision-making, logistics, test, QA, and project controls.
