    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.

    I have been working at ON Semiconductor as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Depends on your manager. If your manager allows, you can possibly work on different project and gain more experience. it's always good to network there and ask to work on projects more relevant to your interests while keep working on the ones you are hired for.

    Cons

    Being a semiconductor company more opportunities for IT and CE guys than CS guys.
