Great Work/Life Balance Company

Principal Applications Engineer (Current Employee)
Chandler, AZ

I have been working at Microchip Technology full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat work/life balance company, relatively flat organization, easy access to top executive managements.

ConsSalary is not very competitive. Limited or no yearly merit increase and bonuses despite net revenue positive every quarter over the last 20 years. Very pathetic company contributions to 401K plan. Limited upward career opportunities within the company.

Perks (business class/economy premium flights, great bonuses, walled offices, etc) are reserved to management team despite company preaches employees are the greatest assets and org charts places individual contributors on top and managers at the bottom (upside down org chart).

Advice to Senior Management1) Improve company's contribution to the 401K plan.
2) Reinstate yearly merit increase.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Microchip Technology - A Great Place to Work For

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Chandler, AZ

I have been working at Microchip Technology full-time for more than 5 years

ProsBest place to learn and grow
Ample opportunities to experiment
Colleagues around are very helpful
Very Enriching experience
Very good work life balance

ConsI personally have not seen issues or concerns at Microchip. After working for Microchip Technology for more than seven years, I have seen some of the highs and lows of the Semiconductor Industry in general and the Top Management here knows how to anticipate change and they are always ready to take care when things around are changing such that the outside Semiconductor Market does not really create much of an impact to our employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone

Retiring Company

Senior Design Engineer (Former Employee)
Chandler, AZ

I worked at Microchip Technology full-time for more than 3 years

Pros1. The designs are small and simple with little to no complexities involved which makes it perfect for an entry level designer or a retiring employee.
2. There is no word called "Deadline" in microchip dictionary which makes your life easy.
3. If you ever want to know what "stability" or "job security" means, take a look at Microchip.
4. Wonderful colleagues and fun filled environment.

Cons1. PAY? It's a big joke here. For an entry level/senior engineer, it is at least 20-30% less than industry standard.
2. 401k/Bonus? Don't even mention it.
3.The MCUs don't require any state of the art design and hence the company is stuck with outdated technology. I don't think it would ever change.
4. Lot of engineers with poor technical knowledge.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe willing to pay what one deserves and match the industry standards. Else the remaining good ones will also leave pretty soon.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
