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.

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.

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

Good pay, great products, but lots of management turnover.
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAJune 20, 2013
NXP is a very good strong organization full of brilliant engineers developing great product. The pay and benefits are good, but you never know if you or your group will be cut next. Upper management seems to be out for themselves and mostly concerned about their stock value. You will hear all about their upper management team-building trips to exotic logations while you are advised how you need to cut back on costs.
Pros
pays is good. middle management people are great.
Cons
your job is not at all secure, great place to work while you find something secure, don't count on being able to retire here.

A creative workplace
Engineer (Former Employee) –  BillericaFebruary 21, 2013
NXP is more vested in technology than some of other chip makers. They can improve their ability and culture to make products. They can also be more competitive in awarding stock units to its employees.

The atmosphere is relaxed. The company has Phillips' legacy.
