    An excellent work environment that keeps you learning and challenged, but poor corporate culture hampers motivation.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    ConsVery 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 Senior ManagementIn 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Psychotic, top down, militaristic managers

    Engineer (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ (US)

    ProsThey pay well. ON has grown through acquisition of stand alone technology companies and has a broad product portfolio, older technology, but broad.

    ConsTraining regarding ON semi's systems is virtually non existent. The organizational structure is the same as the CEO's alma mater, National Semiconductor. BU's compete for factory capacity. National Semiconductor was bought by Texas Instruments.

    Only consider wokring for ON if you have no other options.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire managers who have good people skills. Promoting engineers via the 'good 'ol by' system leads to tyrannical, dictatorial managers who only care about their P&L and view subordinates as an impact to it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Victim of retaliation

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company has excellent code of conduct. Being a technology company, the processes and way of work is fast and efficient. There is so much learning in this company.

    ConsImportant aspect of the code of conduct is not lived up with as how it was being professed. "Old boys club" ruled the senior management circle. Retaliation is prevalent especially if you did not sing in chorus with favored supplier of the senior manager. Very few or no internal opportunities. Your position today will be yours until maybe next 10 years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRetire your senior managers and infuse fresh blood until its not too late.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
