    I have been working at Micron Technology as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Diverse cultural environment, Fast passed, good work life balance, supportive management - for contract work the pay is pretty decent and they function at a high contract employee #

    Cons

    They are really only hiring for contractors at this point so the work is not guaranteed as steady - you don't know how long your contract will last

    Pros

    Hard-working co-workers, no language barrier between person to person. Everyone is ecstatic on their feet even in the engineering side. Technology is guaranteed for another 15 years.

    Cons

    Intern work is never fun, typically only hire 6 month employees. Very volatile industry. Never 100% job guarantee unless technology is moving forward

    Advice to Management

    Needs more free time or more managers.

    Pros

    Near-leading-edge technology for IT. Lots of hands on experience where your contributions make a real difference and you can really see the results.

    Cons

    Micron used to be nimble but as it has grown so large it now moves very slowly and is not keeping up with newer technology. Partially expected as there is lots to lose if things go wrong but in the end not a way to stay ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Need to give creative employees room to experiment and prove new ideas in order to take advantage of the benefits of newer technologies.

    Pros

    If you get the right boss... It will be great. Pay is good for Idaho. They seem to want to invest in the future.

    Cons

    No consistency or career progression planning. You will never be trained at Micron nor told what you need to do to be promoted.

    Pros

    Plenty of training, friendly environment, and reasonably priced but good food in the cafeterium. Benefits are also great, especially the medical

    Cons

    Starts off very slow. Been here a month, and so far only have spent maybe a week actually working on projects. The rest has been "getting up to speed", although things move slow enough that it's really easy to catch up

    Advice to Management

    Make it a bit clearer for some of the goals and expectations, and make job requirements and specifications a bit clearer. Nothing is stranger than starting a job, and having its definition just keep adjusting to meet whatever comes up.

    A more established and documented training materials would be nice. Everything else (company values, atmosphere, management) seems fine so far.

    Pros

    - Good and relaxed environment - People giving constructive criticism - Great focus on company goals - Really professional and expert coworkers

    Cons

    Working on a big project at a fast pace, there is usually no time to properly document what someone does, sometimes leaving other people to figure out what people did before.

    Advice to Management

    The management is mostly ok, and employees are made aware of what the company is going to work on in the future.

    Pros

    Nice salary and bonus system. Work life balance is great and they are ok with working from home when needed.

    Upper management is not very transparent. There is no organized work events or celebrations. The only congrats a team will get is an email

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions more quickly.
