I worked at Micron Technology

Pros

Micron provides an employer friendly work environment for their employees. They offer competitive base salaries with overall good health and dental benefits. They do provide a 401 plan with matching contributions if you maximize your contribution. They offer college assistance with some restrictions.

Cons

Working in a production Fab is not for everyone. Tight confined areas with noise and congestion can be very stressful. Lower management policies and direction tends to be inconsistent with senior management directives.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Complacency in the lower ranks of management is an issue and should be monitored closely by upper mid-management. Supervisor's and Area Managers need more training and education on how to better manage people reporting under them.

    Not a work life balance place; instead, lack of Management abilities (more overhead oriented than helpful)

    I have been working at Micron Technology

    Pros

    I have had good opportunities to continue to grow in my career while in Micron IS. I'm able to suggest new ideas (however I must be very cautious not to be seen as going against the grain, and getting traction on these is very difficult. Also, little credit is given back when traction is finally gained - usually after at least 12 mos).

    Cons

    Work life balance is very company oriented. Very limited ability to work from home and overall WFH has a negative perception when it comes to promotions or abilities.

    There is a trust issue between management and non-management team members.

    Management has difficulty monitoring employees based on productivity, and instead uses the "onsite badge report" which shows when you're actually working from a Micron facility. If you're working from home, that is seen as welcome but not part of your 40 hour work week, and in reality Micron really wants more hours from any non-management employee than could be ever possible.

    There are more process responsibilities assigned to team members than could ever be followed (at least while still keeping productive on real work), and policies are written for the lowest productive employees instead of the higher performers. There is always too much work in the pipeline than feasible, and it's more of a "yes-man" oriented culture than one that makes decisions based on hard numbers.

    On a postive spin, the company is working to improve on some of these areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to start with trust in their employees, then only once someone has failed to support that trust hold that individual accountable instead of managing all employees on a short leash. Carefully consider polices and how they fit together by slowing down and giving more consideration to the impacts across departments or organization boundaries - not all process steps are critical or feasible to complete (instead take baby steps by looking at what is most important instead of overengineering).
