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

Pros

Employment Very Stable for a Semiconductor Company
Low comparative cost of health insurance premium
Company is growing via acquisitions. This is a plus since it opens up more opportunities but a negative because current employees not utilized to develop new products/markets

Cons

Culture is to hire less experience employees and give narrow responsibility -- leads to issues in development
Low costs of health insurance offset by high deductible on medicine and other procedures compared to what I have seen at other large companies
CEO pressures employees to "volunteer" to take 5% pay cut. This is done in letters after announcing the favorable returns the shareholders are receiving
Company is not looking for best in class employees but lowest pay for position. Has led to culture where only upper management is making decisions.

Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Microchip Technology full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers with industry experience in a variety of fields who you can learn from everyday. Management feels very natural with very little oversight on projects and help you develop your skills with and for the company.

    Cons

    None so far, I am loving it here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move forward with more innovative hardware and software technology solutions. Get rid of legacy equipment and programs that have slowly become the backbone of the entire corporation, requiring costly maintenance and upgrades on a constant basis.

    I have been working at Microchip Technology full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, 10 holidays/year, lots of vacation hours and personal time. Very supportive management

    Cons

    Ofcourse the salary could be a little bit higher...and have annualy raises (no gaps). NEPOTISM! Very hard to advance, some (sister, brother, wife, in-law's) will be advanced in a better position regardless merits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire based on knowledge, then you will save lots of money on training.
