    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.

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

    Pros

    I started here in 1993, when it was Motorola, after graduating Magna Cum Laude in Chemical Engineering. I loved working in New Product Development. I was a program manager for the IGBTs in the SPG/PSG division.

    Cons

    I was involved in an accident and went on medical leave. They hired two H1B visas to take my place. When I came back, I was laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring H1 visas and laying off older people. There were 3.2X more people 50 and over than under 50 laid off by Bill Hall's PSG in Nov 2016.

    Pros

    Smart coworkers, data-focused decision making processes, good tools, senior management team that has come up through the trenches and knows the details, large scale and WW footprint which allows for many internal job opportunities.

    Cons

    Constant acquisition integration activity puts heavy load on many teams.

    Advice to Management

    Some lower-risk organic growth opportunities aren't acted upon due to acquisition overload.
