It was a great experience working at ON SEMICONDUCTOR

Staffing Assistant (Former Employee)
Cavite, Cavite City (Philippines)

I worked at ON Semiconductor as an intern for less than a year

ProsWorking at On Semi as a ojt trainee was one of my unforgettable moment for me because the people and the environment was so pleasing and well organized. The work was clearly settle by your mentor or by your supervisor.

ConsWell the downside I had experience in ON SEMI was the pressure having the career inside that prestigious company.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work and the cleanliness of the surroundings inside and out of the company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Supply Chain in PHX will chew you up and spit you out!

Strategic Sourcing Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at ON Semiconductor full-time for more than 3 years

ProsNot a lot of actual supply chain experience in the management team of Global Supply Chain Operations. They are all transplants from other organizations within ON Semi, basically just completing a "tour of duty" as a favor to executive management. Great opportunity to bring actual supply chain experience to the team, just not in an overly offensive way.

ConsThere is NO chance of lower level sourcing managers to be promoted into senior positions within On semi GSCO. They will burn you out and kick you to the curb, without hesitation. And if they have the opportunity, management will outsource your position to Asia, while you are still in it!

Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize that your sourcing managers and buyers are your strategic assets in accomplishing the corporate initiatives and protect them in their daily struggles to accomplish their goals! Common sense at other companies, but not at ON Semi.

Acquisition victim of ON's buying spree....

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

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

ProsIf 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.

ConsIf 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 Senior ManagementDon'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.

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

It's a Job

Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
Pocatello, ID

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

ProsHigh paying, especially for the area.

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

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