    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In 10+yrs I have never seen such an effort in management and leadership to make a really good company, a really great company. Lots of efforts around focus and alignment to insure we are a viable company for the future and communicating this to the team members regularly.

    Pros

    Professional atmosphere; motivated coworkers; work/life balanced; promising outlook.

    Cons

    Career advancement slow; compensation is low-average; some dead weight in the company; must commit to Boise (which has few other engineering options if something happens).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve efficiency to reduce overhead; get rid of "lifers" who are just barely performing; work to bring in other tech companies to Boise to make it a new tech hub.

    Pros

    Micron takes care of their employees. Competitive pay and great benefits. On-site medical clinic and gym. Possibility to travel the world. Promotions are not based on education but performance. Everyone works together and is willing to help you meet your goals

    Cons

    It's in Boise, so it's not for everyone. Other than that I did not experience any other cons except the summer heat in Boise.
