Information Technology (Current Employee) –  United StatesMay 24, 2017
Everyone in the United States always appears exhausted because they have been talking on the phone with the Netherlands at strange hours. There are a lot of cliques and employees are overly protective to the detriment of the team. The management team seems disinterested in growing employees from within.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Low employee morale, employees exhausted

CREATIVE DIRECTOR (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXDecember 18, 2016
Global marketing team is second-to-none. Work environment is fast-paced, and more creative that it first seems. Benefits are great, culture is in transition because of recent merger with Freescale.

Unhappy place as most hate working here.

Freescale was better
Software Tools Developer (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJune 22, 2016
I was hired in Freescale. NXP acquired freescale, said there will be little reorganization. Suddenly, one fine day i am laid off, not due to performance but because of business strategy changes.

Stay away, political and unskilled
Process Manager (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZApril 4, 2016
The most incestuous work environment I've ever been in.
They will hire unskilled labor to work on acids, electrical and gasses without training or prior knowledge just to save money.
The management constantly scrambles to shift blame and position themselves out of chain of command when things go wrong.
A string of broken promises is all you will see if you decide to stay there.

Outstanding company
FSE (Former Employee) –  Fishkill, NYJune 5, 2014
While the company itself has changed hands a lot, it was great to work for. The workload was reasonable, and management was very fair. I learned a lot about the equipment, and cross-training was always strongly encouraged. Advancement in the company was good as long as you proved yourself. They didn't advance just anyone. Co-workers were highly experienced, and a fount of knowledge. While this led to some cynicism, they were (mostly) open to sharing what they had learned throughout the years to the less experienced/new people. If the site hadn't closed down, I'd still happily be there, and would have recommended it to others.
Pros
fair management, lots to learn, recognition dinners, reasonable shifts
Cons
instability financially
