    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.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Training 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 ManagementAdvice

    Hire 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.

    I have been working at ON Semiconductor full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Important 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 ManagementAdvice

    Retire your senior managers and infuse fresh blood until its not too late.
