    I have been working at ON Semiconductor full-time

    Pros

    ON pays a competitive salary. ON is a conglomerate of acquired older technology semiconductor manufacturers. ON employs many talented people globally.

    Cons

    The good 'ol boy Motorola culture is still around.

    There is no manufacturing at the corporate headquarters in Phoenix. To be an effective engineer working from Corporate, you have to work virtually on product engineering projects with engineers from the acquired factories. Many times, the engineers from the acquired factories are resentful towards those from corporate making it difficult to succeed.

    There is no trust between business units. Business units have to compete amongst each other and the only measure is profit.

    Top down, directive management style in some business units. ON's management culture is a few generations back.

    There is no employee training in the myriad of ON systems. The multiple ON systems are a direct result of growth through acquisition. There is no synchronization of the multiple data systems inherited from acquisition.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate should eliminate engineering and just hire business managers to track profits by product lines.

    I have been working at ON Semiconductor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Good people and friendly environment
    -No long working hours
    -It is a good place to work a few years before retirement if you are looking for a mellow environment without any challenges and career advancement.

    Cons

    - There is no smart person working in engineering there.
    - Engineers are not up to date and knowledgeable. Don't expect to learn any thing new working there
    - Old technology and no intentions to make any change
    - Everything is as slow as it gets!
    - No one really works! They just kill their time 7-5
    - Low salaries in comparison to all other technology companies in Oregon
    - Higher managers in Phoenix are a bunch of finance people who do not have any clue to run a technology company, they are excellent in not spending any extra pennies though!
    - Very bad orientation at the beginning. You are on your own, it would take up to a year to learn what you need to do your job.

    Advice to Management

    The management runs the company like property management companies. This is supposed to be a technology company for god’s sake! Old out of date management tricks are dead, please update yourself! There is no clear career advancement and everything over there is dull. Please at least try to make career advancement an option.

    Pros

    You are always busy. Facility is being updated with a lot of new decor providing a more modern feel as you walk the halls. Also added a new gym.

    Cons

    Not as rewarding to those outside of management. The industry is very cyclical so there are constant ebbs and flows. Hard to advance.

    Advice to Management

    You need more people to do the work and fewer delegating.

    Pros

    Company's flagship fab- if the company is producing- you have a job. Solid workers can move up. Always full time.

    I worked at ON Semiconductor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Office hours working.
    Motorola analog division culture and people
    A lot of good engineering document left from Motorola age.
    The HQ is very close to the airport.

    Cons

    Low salary
    Too many office politics.
    Not too many good engineers left there thorough the years.

    Advice to Management

    The top management seems lack of divisions and lack of focus. They tried to acquire multiple companies of various products but cannot focus on high ASP high margin products.
