    Pros

    Good company to work for if you desire a 9 to 4 job.

    Cons

    CEO is very arrogant and thinks he knows what is best for everyone. Only person he really cares about is himself.

    Half the company is dead weight. The company brags about a high employee retention rate. The welfare system also has a high retention rate. This company is not for someone who wants to have a growth career in semiconductors.

    The compensation scales are completely out of line with the rest of the industry. This is by the CEO's wishes since he only wants to hire average people looking to collect a paycheck. Read his book and you will see his scale of mediocre calculation.

    If you are unlucky enough to get acquired by Microchip, make sure you start searching for a job immediately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your head out of the clouds and stop believing your own tales of management greatness.

    Pros

    Good people to work with (Culture), Stable company no layoffs.
    Management OK, my Boss is great though. He is one of the best managers I've had in all of my places of employment.

    Cons

    The pay is tremendously low compared to other companies, you get more responsibilities without a promotion. I'm doing the job of two people that left the company and still making the same money, and they use to make much more money then me. Not Fair!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Discuss how an employee can do better and grow withing the company and add value to the business.

    Pros

    The culture at Microchip is one of the positives. It allows employees to be empowered to do their jobs at a high level and to make decisions that allow the company to succeed. Most of the people there work well together for the common goal of making Microchip the best it can be. The CEO communicates very well and does a lot to help out the employees. He tries to make it like a family and does a good job of it.

    Cons

    The HR department seems to have forgotten the guiding value "Employees are our greatest strength". I would have given the company 5 starts if it weren't for them. They let people go at the drop of a hat and before they do true due diligence. Even managers and people who have been there for a long time are not immune. Beware of HR there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Monitor your HR department. They should be getting rid of the bad ones and keeping the good ones. I think they have it backwards.
