If you aren't the bright, new, next great employee or a member of the good old boys club, you are marginalized.

Pros

- Good OT opportunities.
- Shift work makes for lengthy weekends if you can handle 12 hour days.
- Continuing Education program provides reimbursements for college classes taken.

Cons

- Management cliches are used in lieu of guidance.
- Good luck finding anyone in management who speaks their mind. Highly political? Understatement.
- Feedback amounts to empty demands that we "do better".

Advice to Management

Need an open mind for leadership positions, rather than defaulting to engineers while technicians are viewed as disposable commodities.

    Pros

    Interesting work, challenging, opportunity for travel

    Cons

    Rewarding people for the number of hours put in, not how productive they are. These people are treated like heroes but the folks who just get the job done without all the drama are often marginalized.

    Very political environment among certain areas of middle management. Senior management is always talking about wanting input, but it has been made abundantly clear that the middle management doesn't want any problems brought up unless you have a solution that they will like. Management by impression, not fact is too common.

    Too much of a "what have you done for me lately" mentality among supervisors when it comes to reviews.

    You will absolutely have to self-promote if you want to get ahead because relying on a supervisor to notice good work is a ticket to nowhere.

    Advice to Management

    Micron culture needs to change to allow talking about problems. Right now, no one feels like they can say what is really on their mind because middle management will absolutely retaliate against anyone perceived as a "boat rocker".
