    I have been working at ON Semiconductor full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
