    Pros

    Great place to acquire knowledge; good exposure to markets; great stepping stone if you're a short stayer; easy to navigate cross functional teams...

    Cons

    In a constant state of flux; feeling of insecurity even when company returns to profitability; old timers or staffs highly self centered.

    Advice to Management

    Clarity in trickling down communication will be great; local town hall session hosted by competent managers will be an asset;

    I worked at Freescale Semiconductor full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility. Always something to work on.

    Cons

    Like most companies... It can be hard to replace a team member once they leave. More than likely someone else has to pick up the slack for a few years.

    Advice to Management

    Management was pretty good. To make it better it would be nice to recognize when a team member is losing their passion and perhaps recommend some career help.
