    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.

    Pros

    Steady job. Won't lay off in down turn. Great vacation time accrual. Most of the people are nice.

    Cons

    Pay. Management. Backstabbing for positions. No raises. Drama from all directions. Management to fab employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your job and stay out of people's lives. Don't treat people like cap and push them around. Your best employees leave because of it. Give raises for the love of god!

    Ultimate disappointment

    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.

    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 Very old school, no innovation, outdated tools, manual processes, no employee empowerment in the fab.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!
