Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) – Chandler, AZ – October 15, 2018
My overall experience working at NXP was positive. The opportunity for advancement wasn't easily available which left morale low. It was overall a stable work environment that I was grateful to be a part of.
Senior Yield Enhancement Engineer (Former Employee) – Chandler, AZ – September 16, 2018
typical data was dispositioning material that was inspected and reviewed. Documenting issues and scrapping material as needed. Problem solving at the source and leading teams to resolve in-line tool and process issues
Could be a good place to work if things were better structured.
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) – Chandler, AZ – July 31, 2018
Typical day was going into the factory and not knowing what went on during the shift before you and lack of communication. I was not use to starting a shift without getting a pass down from previous shift.
Not being micro managed while performing daily task.
Walking on steel grating all night long whiched caused lower back pain
Its a job with good benefits, but lacks career growth and investment
Director Procurement (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – July 24, 2018
Each organization has its own culture, so you can experience a wide spectrum of satisfaction. My group is non-revenue producing and is very focused on tactical details versus strategic vision, investment, and innovation. The company has been in merger and acquisition mode for the last 4 years, which takes its toll on the culture and employee engagement. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people I work with daily. Workplace culture is status quo at best. Management is most concerned with the stock price and their wealth. Lower levels below VP are not rewarded generously, but overall benefits and work/life balance is good.
Good benefits, salary, and work/life balance
No career growth, opportunity to innovate, no investment in non-revenue producing organizations, leadership is not inspiring
The company is excellent, but the lower level supervisors are very cutthroat and worry for their jobs, they definitely need new blood in mid to lower management. Nights 1 is the epitome of professionalism if you don't want the "go along to get along feel" go days or nights 1.
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) – Chandler, AZ – July 2, 2018
Typical day was to start shift on time without any pass down or knowing what taken place on the shift before and being setup for failure. The management knew of the lack of communication between shifts, but did nothing to fix it so employee had the same attitude.
Global Sourcing Manager (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – June 20, 2018
Dynamic company with advanced cutting edge technology. Fun to see products developed with NXP technology. Company based in Netherlands makes some work hours and productivity difficult. Geographically challenging to get things accomplished.
Senior Manager, Office of the CIO (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – April 2, 2018
Global company with good benefits and competitive salary. I have had good career opportunities. We recently merged 2 companies, so getting integration experience and merging 2 cultures has been a great opportunity.
99% of people fall into one of two categories, there less than 2 years or there more than 20. This means people are not excepting new ideas, new people don't stay long and the only ones that are there longer than 20 have survived layoffs from Motorola and Freescale by creating churn that makes them look like they are the only ones that can do the job. In reality things could be streamlined so much they could lay off a few dozen and not feel a hit.
I make my own schedule
It takes me longer to open a door than a car can stop all by itself using NXP tech.
Marcom Intern (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – March 9, 2018
I was right out of undergrad so I was thankful to have the opportunity to put some of my skills to use. Unfortunately the corporate culture is not great for young people since everyone in the office seemed to be middle-aged and up and nobody talks to one another.
Field Applications Engineer (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – October 12, 2017
NXP and previously Philips has been a great place to work. Unfortunately the past two years NXP became caught up in the merger mania in the semiconductor industry and management got caught up in the situation. In a time of growth, the sales and technical support staff was cut significantly, which seemed counter productive to the goals of the company. Emphasis was put on short term results regardless of market changes with little value placed on talent. Would have been different if personnel were given options, even if it meant relocation. But since middle management over the past 3 years were disconnected to the talent and the markets served, talent became less valued.
Technician (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – September 29, 2017
I loved my job at NXP. The work was fun the people were easy to get along with and the pay was great. I would not have left if I did not need to move for family reasons. If you are qualified for maintenance its a great place to work.
