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

Current Employee - Technician in Manassas, VA

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

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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Pros

    Good place to "cut your teeth" in the industry.
    That's about it.

    Cons

    Really unhealthy environment, a HUGE "good old boys" network that the company nor employees have been able to shake off. Lots of nepotism, cronyism, and a culture of bullying.
    The company constantly pushes employees to extremes with no reward system in place.
    I can go on, but you get the picture, Micron is rotten at the core. If you go there, don't stay long.

    Oh and it doesn't help that Idaho is what the company calls (and reminds you of every chance they get) a "Right to Work" state. Which translates to: We'll fire you if you just look at us wrong".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all those useless managers, and kill the good old boys network. Both are just sapping you dry.

    I worked at Micron Technology full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Leader in the memory industry with sights on leading.
    Reasonable pay and benefits.
    Good opportunity for advancement if you work in Boise.

    Cons

    Does not function well as a global company, but thinks it does.
    Highly Boise centric with lttle opportunity for significant career advancement if you are outside of Boise.
    Seems to be stuck in the late 80's or early 90's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace modern ideas common with global companies.
    Embrace employees outside of Boise.

    Doesn't Recommend
