    Choosing paths forward are not just picking A (from FSL) or B (from NXP) but realizing that all the parts must work together.

    Pros

    Very good pay and benefits, my boss knows what he's doing but that's not true for everyone

    Cons

    too many slackers collecting a paycheck. Project membership often becomes more important than project outcomes.

    Advice to Management

    I expect to see some some severe head-rolling in the next 6 months.

    I have been working at NXP Semiconductors full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people, challenging work and technology. Compensation and benefits are pretty good. See a lot of groups working well and collaborating together.

    Cons

    Constantly changing priorities makes it hard to get something completely finished. See other groups still stuck in their old ways of my project is the most important.

    Advice to Management

    Stop selling us and stay the course. Owner new perspective owner adds a lot of unknowns to an ever-changing environment.

    Pros

    Great management team for the most part!

    Cons

    An authoritarian leadership style, micromanaging manager was left unchecked and spread from area to area. That can't be good.

    Advice to Management

    Less micromanaging and more leadership. One too many managers practicing authoritarian leadership style and caused too many great employees to seek employment elsewhere.
