I have been working at Microchip Technology full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The people are friendly and everybody is important to their respected team. I feel like Microchip is a stable company with no layoffs in the recent past and none in the foreseeable future.

Cons

Pay raises are few and far between across the entire company. The company is very cost conscious, which is a good thing for shareholders except that as employees we end up using old and outdated equipment and computers.

    Pros

    If you are looking for stability, you found the right place.
    Very stable, no surprises and on a personal level people are all nice

    Cons

    No innovation, no empowerment ( essentially all is decided by two c-level people), nothing which remotely costs money will be approached.
    In here people do what needs tobe done. "Just keep it running"
    Workforce has some cult-like attitude towards their leader.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because something worked 10 years ago it does not mean it's right forever.
    The world evolves, so should Microchip.

    Pros

    Good supportive company, lots of opportunity to learn. Stable company, lots of job security.

    Cons

    Horrible 401k matching is discretionary therefore hardly anything is given. They try to make up for it with company stock grant bonuses but so far in my experience they fall way short. If you want to work until the day you die this is a good company for you. Health benefits also are weak and expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conform to industry standards and match 401k at a decent level, nobody wants to work forever.
