    Pros

    variety of markets and products gives the company strength to weather economic variations, calm and collaborative management style, targets compensation to meet competition. very good at supply chain management

    Cons

    many, many, many different businesses that compete for limited internal manufacturing resources. company runs very lean and you have to be ready to work hard without a lot of support

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus more

    I worked at ON Semiconductor as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people were really good to work with there. I never felt like there was a potential problem with any of my coworkers while I was there. The work itself was pretty laid back but still challenging.

    Cons

    The company is cheap and it seems that all they care about is the bottom line. The office culture there definitely needs some work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to spend a little bit of money to improve the culture or add some perks for employees. You would probably see increased productivity and a lower turnover rate.

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

    Pros

    My manager is extremely sharp and my group is definitely going places. Lots of fun being a part of that team. Team-oriented and helpful environment. The compensation as an intern was very competitive--I was given a strategic voice on the team, even as an intern, and there wasn't much politics to speak of. I honestly believe I have the best internship at the whole company.

    Cons

    I've seen a real lack of aggression in pursuing new technologies, which has occasionally hurt product groups. Hiring comes in odd cycles. Some groups with untouchable management entertain consistent layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pursuing new technologies should play a key role in the development of more product lines. Creative marketing rarely enables growth in low revenue, low margin legacy portfolios.

    Pros

    The employees are great hard working individuals with great collaboration.

    Cons

    Management and HR does not value the talent and experience of human resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not everything can be done in low cost regions. There is value to keeping high skilled jobs in a high skill region versus off shoring everything from A to Z.

    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.
