    I have been working at Microchip Technology

    Pros

    I have nothing good to say

    Cons

    Sent me a payroll check and when I cash it payment was stopped on it ,when I call them about it they tell me that there is nothing they can do about it and I am SOL. I would never recommend this company for anything. Whenever you are confronted by this company turn and run away as fast as possible.

    I have been working at Microchip Technology full-time for more than 8 years

    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

    Onsite clinic. Onsite cafeteria. Covered parking. Good benefits. You can listen to your ipod in the fab.

    Cons

    Our culture is terrible! Very old school, no innovation, outdated tools, manual processes, no employee empowerment in the fab. Duplicated computer systems in the fab in a sorry attempt to prevent scrap because they don't want to spend the $$ to modernize their systems (really convoluted). Lots of partiality from the Group Leads to certain team members. No opportunities for advancement unless your related to the right people if you know what I mean. Pay scale below industry standard. Every two years they cut our hours and put us on Partial Unemployment. We are always playing financial catch up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace all upper management in Tempe with some fresh blood…please!

    I worked at Microchip Technology full-time

    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.
