    I worked at Micron Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is forward looking company that has traditional roots where there is some sense of emphasis on employees and they try to tough out the storm rather than rolling heads at first sign of economic problems

    Cons

    The problem is when an employee is working in a remote location near customer. At the headquarter employees are well taken care of.

    Need more structured metrics-based approach across the board.
    Need to figure out where are core strengths are and focus on them.

    One of the better employers in the valley.

    I have been working at Micron Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It has a different type of management style in the IT department that I like. The pay and incentives are competitive for the valley. The IT "Talent Mgmt" tries it's best to have a work-life balance, training and personal growth. Very health conscience. Great stock options and bonuses in good years. There are people here that have been here forever, so see that as a good sign. Very process oriented.

    Cons

    They will take whatever you give so it's up to you if you do not have a work-life balance. Cyclical product so that could effect bonus/stock or potential layoffs. Sometimes the other departments start projects without knowing/thinking about the IT side is needed and then IT is expected to jump and meet their deadlines no matter what it takes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    sorry, but i'm not one to give advice if i haven't been in their shoes... Maybe recognize the fact that people do try their best and if you hear a name of someone doing good, recognize it.. quick email to say thanks, take a walk through some of the buildings/bull pens... say hi.. all levels of mgmt...

    I worked at Micron Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to get a job right out of college. I was able to learn a lot about the real world work environment, and was able to apply some of what I learned in college.

    Cons

    If you let them, they will work you to the bone. Once you are moved from hourly to salary, you will be expected to work 60+ hours per week. Managers and supervisors will take the quantity of hours you spend in the office, rather than quality of work, into consideration during reviews.

    Generally speaking, it appeared as though people spent more time looking to place blame on others for things that went wrong, rather than fixing problems. If you take a position at Micron, expect to be "thrown under the bus" quite frequently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While employed at Micron, I felt that the executive management team did a great job of driving the company to be successful.

    Director and management level professionals are worked so hard that, and spend so much time putting out fires, it seems that they have a difficult time doing the job they were hired to do, unless they work 60 - 80 hours per week.

    Production supervisors, in my opinion were no more than babysitters. It appeared as though most were promoted because somebody liked them, not because of their capabilities. My experience was that the supervisors were unable (or unwilling) to help their employees
