Freescale competes mainly in the automotive market, and in this market they are being dominated more and more by Japanese chip make Renesas. Too much of a "good old boys" network and not enough people willing and able to create new value. They mostly... — read more

No layoffs, yes layoffs??? Gossip… Rumors? What's correct, there is a ton of rumors about layoffs here in Austin.
Layoff is going to happen in the first half . confirmed from internal source

NXP confirmed to the local paper that layoffs are occurring this week. No numbers or departments were identified. Affected employees were being given the "standard" package. Anyone have more details?
There are some major chips that are either coming back with first silicon or have just had tape out. Others are near DRC. Digital networking never made any sense in NXP's business model. I wonder if they ever tried shopping them around. Gee, they do... — read more
The rumor is that about 25 people in Chengdu were sent home.

The rumor in Chandler is layoff's within the business unit in July (a dozen) and the fab in September. Since NXP took over there is almost no communication and few have any idea what's going on. He (Clemmer) delivered the Q1 results and said low... — read more
Everyone where I work at is worried about losing their job, some are worried about working for a company they know cares more about the stock holder then about their employees. Morale is the lowest I've seen , the enthusiasm we all once had for this... — read more

I hear that we will be having an outstanding 2016, raises, promotions, bonuses, etc. Do not worry, all will be fine.
Anyone has more details about this - there is a rumor that cuts may be coming in Q2 2016 but I heard that we are doing really well in Malaysia so it's probably just a rumor...
So, what will happen next? How do you feel about it? Anyone has experiences with mergers (this is my first big one)? Predictions?
Do Freescale have any severance pay ?
What is the likelihood of Freescale Semiconductor layoffs in Austin in 2016? Please let me know if you have any information.
3 jan 2016: Dutch semiconductor company NXP has decided to close down its Israel center in Herzliya and lay off 150-200 employees - a difficult number to absorb in the high-tech employment market, where competition for every job is so intense.
30% to 40% layoffs company wide is supposedly in the works and NXP asking for it to be done before they officially take over so they share no blame. By October 1st or Nov. 1st. Any comments on this from others?

Many competitors are cutting people since Q4 2014. I think 2015 will be even worse when it comes to layoffs so get ready. Polish your resume, look around, find some contacts, find a head hunter, do something as layoffs are coming for sure
We had layoffs at different locations - we are globally affected - the management cuts ruthlessly and things keep floating on a monthly basis. You are never safe at Freescale, semiconductors are a tough business with razor thin margins - things... — read more
