    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 5 years)

    Pros

    Good working environment. Privileged to have great colleagues and mentors.

    Cons

    Came to a point that I was too familiar with the job and there was limited growth paths should I continue my tenure. Corporate is too focused on manufacturing excellence and sometimes the project is politicised to release at manufacturing half baked. Compared to other companies I would say R&D needs focus.

    Advice to Management

    Cultural wise it is was a great company to work for. Maybe do a paradigm shift on new a leading edge products rather than being satisfied with the mediocrity of things.

    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

    They keep on hiring. You might land up in good role

    Cons

    The culture is very aggressive. The company is unstable as it believes in firing people for any silly reason. Only favoritism can get you ahead or keep your job.

    Advice to Management

    In semiconductor industry, it is important that a person commits to a group for at least 7 years in a group so that he is responsible for his work and product line because it takes 2-3 years to build and 5 years to get the revenue. Most of the people change their group within few years and lot of groups are suffering because of that. Some people have made their strategy to move onto the next big thing and not take anything to revenue success
