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

    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.

    Pros

    People are generally knowledgeable and helpful. Many opportunities to make things happen if you are willing to put the work in. Salary can be good.

    Cons

    Not strong in quality systems. Bare minimum to keep automotive customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to promote innovation. Recommend that there be an innovation intrasite developed where innovation requests and innovation ideas can be posted to enable connections for the sole purpose of directed innovation.

    Current Employee - Design Engineer in San Jose, CA (US)
    Current Employee - Design Engineer in San Jose, CA (US)

    I have been working at ON Semiconductor as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    No much work pressure compared to TI or other start ups. Do not need much extra working time. There were little job for me to do everyday when I had the internship there. And 70% of the employee left work at 5 or 5.30PM. More time for yourself.

    Cons

    Can't see opportunity. Do this job for the rest of your life. Too many meetings for a design engineer which makes it little time for design considerations. The company don't focus on technology, they focus on marketing: buying and selling companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more time building up the atmosphere.
