    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ON Semiconductor has know a great development since it's creation but now the technologies and markets are evolving. The company needs a vision to keep the pace of the semiconductor industry, a consistent strategy of investment for long term. Everything is short sighted.

    I have been working at ON Semiconductor

    Pros

    The work is fast paced and interesting. The pay is competitive, and the offered benefits are really good.

    Cons

    Management is several departments are very poor. This company often promotes based on seniority, not by any measurable leadership abilities.
    For example:My manager is really bad at all things related to leadership, but really knows how to do the individual jobs of his team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start hiring managers to lead groups, it will make a difference!
