    I worked at NXP Semiconductors full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Decent Salary's, a good graduate program, some good benefits and Flexible hours for professional's. Lots of very good people & some interesting products to work on.

    Cons

    Focus on the next share price & a quick buck for overbearing, bullying, management. No longer a positive environment where employees want to do a good job for the company.

    Advice to Management

    The 'do or ill sack you attitude' results in professionals leaving, wanting to leave, or doing a lesser job than if they were truly motivated. Use the Carrot for these people, not the stick.

    I have been working at NXP Semiconductors full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    General conditions good, good atmosphere, flexible working hours, some benefits packages, with good contributions to the pensions. Clean and well maintained working environments.

    Cons

    Pay not bad but could be better. Always a long hard fight to get promotions. Recent merger is causing some uncertainty and speculation of changes, sell offs etc.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better from the corporate level, people like to hear the difficulties as well as the positives from the merger. If only the positives are stated, then people worry there is something in the background.

    I worked at NXP Semiconductors full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, relaxed dress code, great engineers. City centre location with free parking so good for the Christmas shopping/after-work drinkies.

    Cons

    Awful management, unable to make a decision. Direction keeps changing. Attempted to outsource work to India with poor results. Reliance on contractors to fill in the gaps instead of recruiting new staff. Rubbish Marketing department that have made virtually no sales in the last 10 years.

    Advice to Management

    Make a decision and stick to it. Get a grip on Marketing and get them to do their job.
