    I worked at NXP Semiconductors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Steady pace, work life balance. I worked here for four years. Manager was friendly and considerate.

    Cons

    The whole group was suddenly laid off, without much thought for people like myself on H1 visa. My manager who also got laid off helped get me a little more time to find a job.

    Advice to Management

    Look out for people on H1. If you must lay them off, consider giving a little more time for job search.

    Cons

    Poor salary. Poor opportunity for growth. Aging workforce interested in self preservation rather than innovation.

    Advice to Management

    The atmosphere at NXP is toxic with a "good ol' boy" operation mentality. Please keep in mind that the people that have been here for decades have survived only by banding together to form an extremely self-serving system and not by being genuinely good engineers. This is especially true in manufacturing where management will generate false negative reviews of junior engineers while coordinating with subordinate friends who have poor performance in an effort to strategically place them in a position where they can avoid being laid off for another year. The only opportunities for advancement arise when management leaves and promotions are performed within the company. However, said management will eventually return because they can't make the cut at other companies. Perhaps, the upcoming merger(s) might alleviate this. At the very least it might stop them from resending accepted offers from college fresh-outs.
