ON Semiconductor is a great place to work. We celebrate our culture, our people and our future.
  • We are committed to diversity and inclusion, recognizing that our company is at its strongest when it effectively draws upon the wide variety of experiences, knowledge, culture and backgrounds from all employees and leaders.
  • Our goal is to be known as a great learning company, embedding learning into our business and growth strategy and incorporating learning into everything we do.
  • We have a long history of focusing on technical innovation, which includes patent programs and investing in technology. However, innovation is much more than just those things. We are striving for innovation in all aspects of our business.
  • Culture at ON Semiconductor connects everything.

A Bold Strategy for Growth

When ON Semiconductor spun off from Motorola in 1999, we were in survival mode and operating off a strategy of "playing not to lose". In our November 2013 Board Meeting, our board rejected our proposed strategic plan and challenged us to create a more aggressive plan that would double our current market share. Following the November 2013 Board Meeting, we have evolved from “playing not to lose” to “playing to win” thanks to the hard work and persevering efforts from our global employees and their strong character.

  • Aggressive/Bold: We have grown over 5 times from a revenue perspective in a relatively short period of time through both organic and inorganic growth
  • Proactive: Delivering innovative products and solutions
  • Confident/Assuring: Maintaining a leadership position in mature markets; entering the Fortune 500
  • Courageous: Investing resources to win in strategic growth markets: Automotive, Industrial, Communications
