    Pros

    Depends on your manager. If your manager allows, you can possibly work on different project and gain more experience. it's always good to network there and ask to work on projects more relevant to your interests while keep working on the ones you are hired for.

    Cons

    Being a semiconductor company more opportunities for IT and CE guys than CS guys.

    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.

    Pros

    They pay well. ON has grown through acquisition of stand alone technology companies and has a broad product portfolio, older technology, but broad.

    Cons

    Training regarding ON semi's systems is virtually non existent. The organizational structure is the same as the CEO's alma mater, National Semiconductor. BU's compete for factory capacity. National Semiconductor was bought by Texas Instruments.

    Only consider wokring for ON if you have no other options.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers who have good people skills. Promoting engineers via the 'good 'ol by' system leads to tyrannical, dictatorial managers who only care about their P&L and view subordinates as an impact to it.
