    Pros

    people respect each other, and the respect different culutre, they have some games such as ping pong

    Cons

    I don't think that there's a downside with ON, Myabe there's a lot of work to do but I like that anyway.

    Advice to Management

    I think mangment need to delegate more jobs, and maybe promote their employees more often,

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

    Pros

    Hours are not too strict as long as employee get things done. Very cool company, fast growing, a lot to work on.

    Cons

    Cool people, but most employee here have are old and have a family, the culture is a little less energetic for younger people, but it is very comfortable

    Advice to Management

    Be more aware of the average age of the company, less young people may lead to lower chance to innovation.

    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    HR policies are cheap, stingy and outdated.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.

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

    Pros

    Large company with all sorts of different things you can work on. Deep engineering history in Silicon development and manufacturing

    Cons

    Sr executive management tends to be treated like royalty and the rest of the employees are treated as easily replaceable. Promotions are limited and with many acquisitions they are a bit of a smattering of various cultures.

    Advice to Management

    Would benefit from new blood in the Executive team. The old school continues to make all the rules which leaves little for break through improvement in both results and working environement

    I have been working at ON Semiconductor full-time

    Pros

    - The schedule was by far my favorite part.
    - You get a decent amount of breaks. ( 2 30 min. breaks, one 50 min lunch)
    - A very diverse workplace with many interesting people to meet.

    Cons

    - Some parts of your area are always very busy, like metrology in etch. In that place you hardly have any time to get a drink before theres something else to be done.
    - Low pay.. my base was 13.50, but about 15 with the night shift bonus.
    - Very repetitive work. In the beginning it's all exciting and different but it gets old really fast.

    Advice to Management

    For places in an area that are generally very busy, add another operator. When an operator gets overwhelmed with work for 12 hours straight, 4 days straight they really start to hate their job.
