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

    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.

    Current Employee - Engineer in Gresham, OR (US)

    I have been working at ON Semiconductor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good people to work with in engineering
    No dress-code
    Generally casual atmosphere in engineering
    They appear to be growing strong and have not had a layoff or furlough in a couple of years

    Cons

    Poor labor practices in manufacturing operations (long temp-to-hire process)
    Poor review, promotion, and raise structure
    ~50 hours per week mandatory (poor work-life balance)
    Overly compartmentalized
    Slightly below industry average for wages and benefits (and getting worse: health insurance gets worse every year, raises are very small)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a reason all the other companies in the area are picking off your experienced engineers: you can get paid better, and get better benefits anywhere else.
    The 10 month delay between review and raise/promotion is a mockery of the review process.
    Try respecting your employees a little more. You make them work hard enough, why not reward them when the company is doing record business? If this is how good it gets when the company is doing great, I would hate to see it when the company is taking a downturn.
