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

    Pros

    Stay if you are already in retiring age, or you don't want to develop your career.

    Cons

    Working as principal engineer at Microchip for 3 years by far, I have to say this company is a dirt cheap place for working, which is the real company culture, no matter what it says on its website. Microchip claimed that the biggest strength is its employee, however, it treats its employee awful, such as very low pay, few salary increase, joking 401k plan, etc. This is definitely not the right place where you can develop career skills in a long term view since its technology (both Analog and MCU) is far behind its competitors. Most of the principal engineers and managers idle away their time, and many motivated engineers keep jumping to the other leading technology companies for much higher salary,way better benefits, wider career developments, etc. To be honest, after staying for just a couple years, you may lose your motivation. After staying more than 7 or 8 years, you may lose your technical ability to jump for another good job. And, finally, if your expertise is in the field of Analog, please stay away from this place!

    Advice to Management

    Some managers should be put into performance improvement plan, shame on them.

    Go somewhere else if you can, and stay if you are dawdler.

    I worked at Microchip Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    So called "stable", it depends.

    Cons

    Pay is way below the market average, benefits are horrible such as 401k, medical, etc. Principal engineer title is just nothing since the salary is not competitive at all. No salary increase even when business is making record. Treat its employee too bad. Microchip is not a leading technology company at all, even not a follower.

    Advice to Management

    some managers are really not qualified to be there
