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

Pros

12 hour shift allows for 3 4 days off a week. Supportive management. Promote from within attitude. Quarterly profit sharing when the company is making money.

Cons

12 Hour shift can be long for some people. Profit sharing based on salary would like to see it more equal as everyone contributes to the success of the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Overall I think they do a good job. Can only speak for the departments I worked in. Heard some negative stories from other departments.

    Worst Company I ever worked for in my 20+ years. Total Micro-managing mentality.

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

    Pros

    Truly can't think of many. Products aren't that innovative - DRAM is all standardized.
    Micron knows their Boise HQ based employees have nowhere else to work in high-tech and tamp down salaries and raises as a result.
    Layoffs frequent. Bonuses not frequent.

    Cons

    Company favors Mormons and lifers at Micron for upper management.
    Company is not a fan of Californians relocating to Boise to work for MU.
    Company secretly tracks every employees' website visits on company computers. Visit 1 personal website at work? It's tracked and grounds for termination under Micron policy resulting in ZERO unemployment bennies and separation pay.
    Company uses employees 'badging in' daily not for security but instead to actually compile # hours worked each and every workday. IF you fall below 40 hours worked in any week expect your manager to talk to you personally and issue a warning. Workout at work? Micron does not consider this in the 40 hours/week. Take conference calls off Micron grounds - ditto, not counted towards the 40 hour per week minimum.
    Company WILL terminate you and use weak reasons like "violated company policy by visiting 1+ personal website while on company time."
    Middle managers work their way up at MU often by screwing others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the Micromanaging.
    Stop the wrongful terminations for weak weak illegal reasons.
    You make a commodity product, save $$ in good times so you don't layoff tons of employees in bad times.

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

    Pros

    The airport is close. The highway is close. There are large coffee urns and filtered water machines.

    Cons

    Nepotism runs rampant. Expected to protect and endorse the unskilled. Not allowed to think for yourself. Productivity is rare because of the self-identified mini-kings.Mgmt has their head in the sand. Never works to erradicate the problems in the organization which are poison pills that breed contempt and oppression. There is high-turnover. Top it off that all of the buildings have a septic smell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the malicious employees that ruin this company. They have been here too long and think they are gods.
