    I have been working at Microchip Technology full-time

    Pros

    Upper management is super talented and 100% focused on achieving business goals. The company culture is based on empowerment - give people the tools and responsibility to get the job done, and stay out of the way. Help is available from lots of sources - if you ask for something that aligns with someone else's goals, the teamwork is great. Compensation includes stock-based payments that can be pretty good when the share price is rising.

    Cons

    Raises are a very small part of the total compensation plan. More emphasis is placed on a number of quarterly bonus plans and other temporary pay adjustments. Not a lot of upward mobility due to a very flat organization structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a growing company, the opportunities created by another layer or two of management would be worth the added organizational complexity.

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

    Pros

    Anyone who is not happy here has probably created the negativity themselves! Myself and everyone on my team who are working hard and are performing well couldn't be happier. It seems like people who are not happy and complaining are just nay-sayers and aren't smart enough to recognize that they are the issue; not this company, their leaders, or co-workers! Flexibility-check, stability-check, interesting work-check, company with vision-check! I could go on and on :)

    Cons

    The only thing I can think of is that at times it takes management to identify and execute performance management with employees who are not performing well.

    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.

    I worked at Microchip Technology full-time

    Pros

    Employees can come in at 9 and leave by 4 with little accountability.
    Most employees are able to have a second job.
    Easiest sales job in the industry since there are no commissions.
    Plenty of internal training to eat up the work day.
    Great company to spend your final five years in the industry working, retired on the job.

    Cons

    Entire management structure is nothing more than "yes MEN" to the COO and CEO.
    No such thing as pay for performance.
    Process and procedure is put in place to prevent forward progress and any spending of company funds.
    Company is run by a team that has been present for over 20 years and has no vision for the future.

    Doesn't Recommend
