    Pros

    Competitive benefits - Salary, Bonus, Pension, Healthcare, Holiday, Contribution to Gym membership, Cycle to work scheme, Employee Share Purchase scheme. etc. Enjoy collaborative work with very talented, professional and expert people. Product Roadmaps and Strategy. Clear customer identification and strategy.

    Cons

    Overall very good but some slow execution (eg. New Product introductions, Creating new accounts etc). Partly due to the failed M&A with Qualcomm. Nothing that isn't fairly typical in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Can you help us with improved Time to Market please?

    I have been working at NXP Semiconductors full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company has several different business lines and lobbying competences, that seem to guarantee survive in the medium to long term. The sophia antipolis site looks solid today. For the south france it is probably one of the few big companies left to work on microelectronics. Good CE.

    Cons

    Top management is very financially driven, and this reflects in employees activities. There seems to be a lack of focus, and in general a multiplication of similar projects that overload the employees without often resulting in technical advances. Very little research and much of the work is actually development. However due to the nature of the business, occasionally it seems some interesting development happen:... still just a minority of the employees have chances to be involved. Despite a wide variety of activities of the site, transition from one workplace to another does not seem encouraged, which makes personal development possibilities limited.

    Advice to Management

    Give a stronger technical leadership, and polarize the sparse r&d efforts.
