    I worked at ON Semiconductor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Office hours working. Motorola analog division culture and people A lot of good engineering document left from Motorola age. The HQ is very close to the airport.

    Cons

    Low salary Too many office politics. Not too many good engineers left there thorough the years.

    Advice to Management

    The top management seems lack of divisions and lack of focus. They tried to acquire multiple companies of various products but cannot focus on high ASP high margin products.

    establish a more open connection between upper management and employees within the same groups, improve the map of the facility

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

    Pros

    None to really speak of (benefits, salaries, etc are largely non competitive)

    Cons

    ON buys firms to grow since they are not innovative enough themselves to invest in R&D. Their management culture/style is terrible....it's all about cost cutting without looking at the true "Cost" of trying to be a skinflint. They don't listen to their acquired talent from firms they procure so they never innovate. It's amazing. They will never be a successful company - the productive staff leave & won't tolerate their non collaborative culture...I've seen it with my own eyes. ON is going nowhere & its by their own fault (what a shame!)

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your acquired talent (they often bring world class ideas/approaches that ON could leverage). Define Dept function Roles & Responsibilities. Eliminate of cronyism (make objective, total cost based decisions, not subjective decisions based off old boys network relationships). Stop being so cheap....t-shirts at a company picnic raffle. Really?!

    Pros

    Great people, great location. It is super cool to work here as the ceo and other things are totally awesome. You should work here too

    Cons

    I'm not sure that I can think of any cons. They pay regularly. Oh wait, that is a pro. Well, for a con, I would say that the building is on a hill.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on trucking. Keep on trucking. Don't fix what isn't broken. Get more customers to bring in more money that you can give to your awesome staff.

    Pros

    Good internship experience. Opportunities to get involved with others. Decent building facilities

    Cons

    I wasn't there long enough to really experience any major cons. My experience as an intern was sufficient.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the internship program opportunities for growth and development. This provided meaningful experience for me.

    Pros

    Decent benefits Adequate salary Interesting work when the ON infrastructure doesn't get in the way.

    Cons

    Structured via "silos" where upper managers openly refuse to share information with other groups. 100% focus on cost cutting without any focus on minimizing waste (there is a lot of it). Poor communication with employees. Tons of promises by upper management (monetary, career growth, etc) with no mechanism (funding, training) given to supervisors so that they can implement.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of telling employees that their input is valued and then totally ignoring it, consider listening to some of the people in all of those companies that you're purchasing and implementing those things that made them successful.
