    Advice to Management

    Pros

    ON is reasonably aligned with the Semiconductor industry in terms of benefits, job independence, project funding and advancement. Work/life balance is reasonable and coworkers are welcoming.

    Cons

    The pace is slow. If you're used to start ups, you won't find the work here to be as engaging.

    Advice to Management

    Update the site in Phoenix, modern working conditions and IT would significantly reduce waste.

    I worked at ON Semiconductor full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay for low-skill fab workers.

    Decent work/life balance if you aren't an exempt employee.

    Frequent opportunities for travel if you are an engineer or manager.

    ON is actually a good employer if you're in SE Asia or eastern Europe. Not so much for US employees.

    Cons

    Compensation/benefits are low for skilled professionals, making it hard to retain good employees. Burnout is very common, especially in younger employees. The turnover is insane, even in middle-management.

    There is a huge disconnect between senior management and the people that actually do the work. Managers do not want responsibility or accountability for anything, so getting them to commit to any project is a huge chore.

    Senior management is also way too reliant on metrics in areas where metrics alone won't tell you what's going on. Even when metrics are given proper context, most managers still operate off of the raw numbers that tell them only what they want to believe.

    Regular employees are referred to as "resources", not people, and they're treated as such.

    Communication and cooperation between departments is very poor.

    Negotiating raises and promotions is mostly futile unless you have serious leverage that you're willing to use and you stick to your guns.

    The business side and a lot of manufacturing is located in the US, but most of the IT department is in eastern Europe. That works about as well as you'd expect.

    So many pointless meetings. So, so many pointless meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Fire every senior manager. Get some fresh blood in there. Do something about the poisonous office politics and lazy corporate culture.

    Pros

    Well managed company who is clear on their focus for drive for EBIT and their growth through acquisition Long standing management team knows their businesses well

    Cons

    A lot of reporting through different levels of management. Large monthly reviews means you are constantly reporting on a long list of metrics and have less time to actually do business.

    I worked at ON Semiconductor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    ON Semiconductor serves a large market of integrated semiconductors. Think of it as a mini-TI. Plenty of internal opportunities are available.

    Cons

    HR policies are cheap, stingy and outdated. Technical individual contributors are not recognized with compensation; even if they have years or decades providing results beyond their pay-grade.
    Policy for raises are 10% max.
    Raises at most once a year but more likely every 5 years.
    Degrees are needed for promotions: i.e. technician to engineer.
    Degrees do not equal immediate promotions. You might have to wait; you might not even get a promotion.
    Bonuses do not apply to most employees, only the top engineers and management.
    You can get a "Bravo Award" bonus but only if your manager goes to bat for you.

    Advice to Management

    Review your policies. Understand technical ability and cultivate it in-house. Remember you are a semiconductor company, MBAs are great but you need engineers which are made on the job.
    I worry for the company's health in the long-term. If you maintain these HR policies you will see an evaporation of talent.
