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 Management

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.

    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 Management

    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.
