Narrow Breadth of Responsibilites Leads to Issues with Employee Growth

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Chandler, AZ

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

ProsEmployment 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

ConsCulture 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.
