    Pros

    Compressed schedule, decent pay and benefits, incentives for performance. The CEO keeps everyone informed about how well the company is doing on a quarterly basis. He also seems to make pretty good business decisions when the going gets tough.

    Cons

    corporate politics, not enough supervisors per compressed shift for them to be truly engaged with performance management

    Pros

    Microchip is by far the best company I ever worked for. The atmosphere is really relaxed and they give you plenty of time to grow into your role. They also have excellent training program. If you like relaxed atmosphere and value work-life balance, this is the perfect company for you. I would have loved to kept working for them but some personal reasons forced me to relocate to a different city and I had to quit my job at Microchip.

    Cons

    Probably more vacation time and better 401 K contribution.

    Pros

    Good benefits, 10 holidays/year, lots of vacation hours and personal time. Very supportive management

    Cons

    Ofcourse the salary could be a little bit higher...and have annualy raises (no gaps). NEPOTISM! Very hard to advance, some (sister, brother, wife, in-law's) will be advanced in a better position regardless merits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire based on knowledge, then you will save lots of money on training.
