    I have been working at Micron Technology full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Vacation time adds up quickly compared to most other companies but that is really about all I can say positive about Micron.

    Cons

    So poorly managed. All the way from the top down. Managers are not given training and incompetent people are put into manager positions. Most are not people persons. Environment does not value teamwork - everyone is out for themselves. Good people are forced out especially for not fitting into the good ol' boys network. Totally top heavy. All VP's are men. Very cyclical and layoffs happen every 3-5 years due to poor management and forecasting. Employees (for the most part) are not listened to. It is very rare to find someone that is content or happy. The entire environment is poisonous and not healthy. A lot of the negative comments on here are very accurate and true.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of always laying off the "worker bees," how about laying off some of the many layers of incompetent managers and starting over with fresh ideas. This company has the potential but until this very odd culture changes, this company will never be what it could be. Hire an outside consulting team to come in and revamp how this place is managed.

    I have been working at Micron Technology full-time for 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.
