    Pros

    Great personality of employees.
    One of the most successful of the semiconductor companies.
    Good field sales culture.

    Cons

    There isn't much that I can think of! Maybe Microchip is a little behind in developing the most cutting edge technology.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Make a plan for how you are going to transition to the next group of leaders in the company.

    Pros

    Employee involvement in the company goals is a primary focus of this company. Keeping open lines of communication throughout the chain of employees supports everyone aiming at these common goals. The respect given to employees here is amazing. The ability to grow into richer work responsibilities is part of the culture. You can grow into any type of roll you put your mind to achieving.

    Cons

    It takes a certain type of individual to work at Microchip. You need to buy into the shared exposure of the company in regards to your individual success. The flip side of this team player approach is that when the company does well, the success and benefits are shared with everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to absorb new employees acquired through acquisitions into the Microchip culture as fast as possible. This team approach to growing the company through shared goals and the focus on the future of the company is a very desirable feature of working here.

    Founded on a very flat management style, with plenty of personal liberty and resources to investigate new ideas.

    Pros

    There are many "topical experts" in this company, and most are generous with their time and information, so it is easy to pick up information about both new and old technologies. Research is encouraged. There is a lot of emphasis on new (young) employees, and great training programs, both corporate-formal and department-level.

    Cons

    The freedom to experiment often leads to good ideas that don't fit within the overall corporate goals for products. A lot of emphasis is placed on near-term solutions. Champions that are motivated to solve longer-term issues are often isolated and simply ignored by the larger group.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a better way to manage new-product development strategies, and introduce tactics that acknowledge the risk inherent in planning and scheduling of leading-edge technologies.

    Pros

    The culture is consistent, supportive, and enjoyable. We have the freedom to "think outside the box." If that results in a problem, we review what went wrong then are encouraged to continue being innovative in our pursuit of growth. We have a worldwide team that works together for the good of the company, not individual recognition.

    Cons

    With the numerous acquisitions it has been more challenging for everyone to adapt to our culture fundamentals. And we continue to learn new approaches to improve our successes, but some management is slow at practicing what they preach.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror! Different employees, customers, suppliers have different approaches to motivation, and although we are being taught to look at things from their perspectives, that is not always practiced.

    Overall good work environment,I like what I do, good benefit, enjoy the people I work with.

    Cons

    Better communication within the my department. Standardize the tools we are to use. More trust from management outside of our department.

    Advice to Management

    It seems employees are treated as an expense rather than an asset.

    Pros

    Great work life balance. You have a life outside of work.

    Cons

    Not competitive pay. The attrition rate in the bay area is high due to lack of competitive pay structure.
