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

    Current Employee - Strategic Sourcing Manager

    I have been working at ON Semiconductor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not 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.

    Cons

    There 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 Management

    Recognize 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.

    I cannot recommend ON Semiconductor for anyone seeking any kind of stability in their position.

    Pros

    Competitive pay for Director level and above
    Most managers support a good work life balance
    Covered parking for all employees

    Cons

    Upper management uses headcount to meet monthly numbers. Be prepared for continual layoffs, even in good times. Very much a "good old boys" network operating within ON, especially with regards to bringing in former Fairchild employees.

    Advice to Management

    Quit promoting based upon "the good old boys" network and start promoting the best people into the jobs. Treat employees as your most valuable asset. Quit forcing vacation as a means to meet quarterly financial goals.

    Pros

    There were not many pro's to working at ON. I worked their for two years and was very disappointed with the work environment and my manager.

    Cons

    Very strange work environment. Most groups keep to themselves and don't talk outside their bubble. Most people don't seem happy in their current position and are always concerned about being laid off. There is a lot of turnover and people are constantly coming and going.

    Advice to Management

    Management always seems to be reactive instead of proactive. If the company has one bad quarter people shouldn't be looking over their shoulder wondering if they are getting laid off.

    Pros

    One of the few large multinational headquartered companies in Phoenix. Acquisitive. Pay is above average.

    Cons

    Motorola bureaucracy endures. Old mainframe systems. Lots of tribal knowledge. Veteran employees hoard knowledge as a way for job security. No appetite to modernize. Good old boy network very alive and well. Status quo. Don't rock the boat. Lots of offshoring. Expect US employees to accommodate Europe and Asia time zones. Very egalitarian. VPs and above can fly business class while rank and file go coach.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management should be replaced. Stock price has gone nowhere. Someone should buy ON and put them out of their misery.


  6. Limiting career

    Pros

    Predictable place to work.

    Cons

    Oversized corporation bogged down with politics and political correctness. Its main objectives are to avoid litigation and keep big government contracts.

    Pros

    Not much stress (could be a bad thing), layback relax working environment
    Good place to build career foundations
    Good place for retirement or for those who just want to past time while getting extra cash

    Cons

    Little chance of promotion due to most colleagues stay till retires
    Some managers can be very bias
    Old timers are stumbling blocks to new ideas & talent retention

    Advice to Management

    Improve career development for the high potential employees
    Old timers who been there for over 25 years need to move on to other positions, they are hindrance to new ideas & younger employees

    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 Management

    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

    Good people to work with in engineering
    No dress-code
    Generally casual atmosphere in engineering
    They appear to be growing strong and have not had a layoff or furlough in a couple of years

    Cons

    Poor labor practices in manufacturing operations (long temp-to-hire process)
    Poor review, promotion, and raise structure
    ~50 hours per week mandatory (poor work-life balance)
    Overly compartmentalized
    Slightly below industry average for wages and benefits (and getting worse: health insurance gets worse every year, raises are very small)

    Advice to Management

    There is a reason all the other companies in the area are picking off your experienced engineers: you can get paid better, and get better benefits anywhere else.
    The 10 month delay between review and raise/promotion is a mockery of the review process.
    Try respecting your employees a little more. You make them work hard enough, why not reward them when the company is doing record business? If this is how good it gets when the company is doing great, I would hate to see it when the company is taking a downturn.
