    Pros

    Lots of interesting work, and there's always something new to learn. Keeps you challenged.

    Cons

    Very poor corporate culture. Get an obvious sense that the company doesn't care too much about the employees, only the shareholders and making profit.

    Advice to Management

    In my opinion, employees are what make up the heart of the system. If it's not fed well, it will start to deteriorate, just like our bodies.

    Pros

    ON Semiconductor has some of the best work-life balance opportunities for employees. Employees have work from home options and managers are pretty hands-off when it comes to work schedules. The company is very results driven so as long as your getting your work done, they are really good about letting you manage your own schedule. I also enjoy the sense of community the company has built with community evolvement, employee gatherings, etc.

    Cons

    The overall leadership needs a lot of improvement. The company continues to expect more and more from employees but without additional resources. The company runs lean so you have to be ready to wear many hats and juggle multiple tasks at one time.

    Advice to Management

    Training needs to be a priority within groups. Managers also need to take more interest in an employee's career paths and developing their team members.

    Pros

    variety of markets and products gives the company strength to weather economic variations, calm and collaborative management style, targets compensation to meet competition. very good at supply chain management

    Cons

    many, many, many different businesses that compete for limited internal manufacturing resources. company runs very lean and you have to be ready to work hard without a lot of support

    Advice to Management

    focus more

    Pros

    ON pays a competitive salary in the semiconductor industry. ON has grown through acquisition of older technology semiconductor companies.

    Cons

    Since ON has grown through acquisition, the business intelligence systems are numerous and highly varied.

    The Phoenix corporate HQ has no manufacturing. However, there is still a residual of engineering remaining. The HQ structure could lean out by having only business unit managers and delegate the engineering to the manufacturing sites.

    Management is still top down with remnants of cronyism.

    Advice to Management

    Decentralize engineering work to the sites. HQ should be a business management site alone.
