    Pros

    Flexible time management, good camaraderie between employees.

    Cons

    Very weak upper management team (down to SVP level) with continuous focus on the short term to justify the lack of strategy. Significant lack of accountability of key individuals resulting in extremely weak execution. The future looks very gloomy. Attrition is high in May 2018.

    Advice to Management

    Inspire people by saying what you do and doing what you say!

    I have been working at NXP Semiconductors full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    U.S. based pay and benefits good due to legacy Freescale having far more U.S. employees at the time of acquisition such that Freescale's benefits were kept.

    Cons

    This company sucks - hard. If you are not based in Europe, you are at the bottom of the pile. U.S. employees are far more likely to lose the lottery of forced 10% or so poor reviews. Mid management has even been heard joking that European managers with U.S. based direct reports can use the U.S. based employees "as a buffer" to keep European employees from getting bad reviews.

    As an employee of Freescale prior to the NXP buyout, I can tell you things were much better as Freescale. Gregg Lowe was a much better CEO as well. On top of everything else, NXP is bungling business such that future opportunities are being lost to competitors.

    Unless you enjoy being on the bottom and expendable, don't apply at NXP if you are in the U.S. I know many employees have left since the NXP takeover, and I have overheard many conversations of others disgusted with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Time to clean house in upper management. And stop pinching pennies to try and make the numbers look better for the Qualcomm buyout. Your miserly ways and poor treatment of employees is catching up to you.
