    Pros

    Great place to meet dedicated, hard working and motivated people.

    Cons

    Traditional management style. Employees are not valued to their full potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management seems to be lacking long term commitment and vision; and seems to be sacrificing long term benefit of the company for short term gain.

    I have been working at ON Semiconductor as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    No much work pressure compared to TI or other start ups. Do not need much extra working time. There were little job for me to do everyday when I had the internship there. And 70% of the employee left work at 5 or 5.30PM. More time for yourself.

    Cons

    Can't see opportunity. Do this job for the rest of your life. Too many meetings for a design engineer which makes it little time for design considerations. The company don't focus on technology, they focus on marketing: buying and selling companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more time building up the atmosphere.

    Current Employee - Principal Design Engineer in Pocatello, ID

    I have been working at ON Semiconductor full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Stop 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.

    I have been working at ON Semiconductor

    Pros

    Well managed. Clear vision. Good growth (acquisitions). Value driver is operational excellence.

    Cons

    Company runs quite lean... no frills, weak succession planning. Product portfolio is sturdy, but "me too"... not leading edge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose site of fundamentals as the company grows.
