Industry leader with tremendous potential
Engineering Manager (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXDecember 19, 2018
NXP is a leading company in a wide array of markets. They're ethical and the company culture is uplifting. Under current leadership they're highly driven to achieve aggressive financial metrics which can lead to high pressure to perform, along with lots of focus on controlling costs. Most of the company's employee growth lately and in the foreseeable future has been in low cost regions of the world.
Pros
Good wages and benefits
Cons
Highly cost sensitive, leading to less job security in high cost regions

Daily production was never enough for company

Preventive maintenance, qualifications, repairs. Traveled to Japan, Austria, & all over the US on training classes for various pieces of equipment. Leaned about the semiconductor industry and processes. Management for the most part were incredibly helpful and attentive to current issues.Great place to work. Hardest part of the job was figuring out certain intermittent equipment failures. Most enjoyable part of the job was training and learning.

Positive experience
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZOctober 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.
Pros
Great benefits, overtime
Cons
No opportunity for advancement

Could be a good place to work if things were better structured.
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZJuly 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.
Pros
Not being micro managed while performing daily task.
Cons
Walking on steel grating all night long whiched caused lower back pain

Job Culture
Its a job with good benefits, but lacks career growth and investment
Director Procurement (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 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.
Pros
Good benefits, salary, and work/life balance
Cons
No career growth, opportunity to innovate, no investment in non-revenue producing organizations, leadership is not inspiring

Great Company
Manufacturing Associate (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 10, 2018
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.

Lack of Discipline
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZJuly 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.

less than 2 or more than 20
Safety Specialist (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXMarch 21, 2018
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.
Pros
I make my own schedule
Cons
It takes me longer to open a door than a car can stop all by itself using NXP tech.

Gave me the opportunity to start
Marcom Intern (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAMarch 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.
