    Psychotic, top down, militaristic managers

    Engineer (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsThey pay well. ON has grown through acquisition of stand alone technology companies and has a broad product portfolio, older technology, but broad.

    ConsTraining regarding ON semi's systems is virtually non existent. The organizational structure is the same as the CEO's alma mater, National Semiconductor. BU's compete for factory capacity. National Semiconductor was bought by Texas Instruments.

    Only consider wokring for ON if you have no other options.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire managers who have good people skills. Promoting engineers via the 'good 'ol by' system leads to tyrannical, dictatorial managers who only care about their P&L and view subordinates as an impact to it.

    Could be so much better

    Principal Design Engineer (Current Employee) Pocatello, ID

    ProsThe people in the trenches are great. The Design teams have been able to design some very difficult chips.

    ConsThe pay is nothing to write home about. The benefits used to be great and they are slowly whittling those down to where I could get better benefits working at Costco.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop treating your engineers like they are disposable assets. It is difficult to get people to want to move to Idaho, where there are no other options for employment if things don't go well. You should be working harder to maintain the good engineers you already have here.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Just under average

    Digital Design Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people on my team are great. Among team members there is no back-stabbing or ladder climbing. These people are thinning due to attrition and multiple years of the effects of the "Cons" section, but there are still good groups of people in isolated places.

    ConsFrom the corporate level down they have a strategy of "just under industry average". That extends to rate of hiring, amount of people staffed on projects, quality of projects, compensation, benefits, technology, IP, etc. This theory was actually stated in those words at an HR meet-and-greet.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt is a global market. If you want to be a winner, you have to lead. You don't lead by following. Get a vision and back it. Hire good people and believe them when they tell you something.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
