I have been working at ON Semiconductor full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

If you're a Romanian from the Catalyst Acquisition, you're somewhat protected. Incompetence and socially unacceptable behavior are tolerated, even rewarded it seems. On the other hand, if you're from the old Moto clan, you've got a place in Phoenix.

Cons

If you're not a Romanian and you get the pleasure to interface with those people... let's just say it's an experience... but if you're not located in Phoenix, forget about advancement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't buy a small company to grab the cash in the bank if it's run by idiots that protect "their own" and hire all of their relatives back in the motherland! Do the shareholders a favor and invest in something with some real IP, not a nepotistic jelly-bean commodity house.

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

    Pros

    High paying, especially for the area.

    Cons

    Known for laying people off. Engineers are over worked and expected to perform many more roles and handle much more product than at other semiconductor companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't expect engineers to do the job of 3 people and still expect them to stay with the company.

    I worked at ON Semiconductor full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Better pay and benefits than other industries.

    Cons

    Suffers the same problems that all semiconductor manufacturing companies do. The work is repetitive, unrewarding, and unstimulating. It's impossible to make changes, no matter how good they look, and it's difficult to learn things because no one knows the answers to a lot of questions and you can't do experiments to figure them out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unshackle your engineers.
