    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.

    Pros

    World-class training, excellent rate of pay, great benefits, quarterly bonuses, growth opportunities

    Cons

    I do not know if they still do this but you would come in thru an agency as a Temp for 3 to 6 months or longer depending on the area that you would be working in.

    Advice to Management

    Pull the trigger on the hiring of temps it can be discouraging to be temporary for so long and then have someone you work with that has just been hire in as a permanent employee.

    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

    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.

    Pros

    Nice people, great hours, laid back environment. Even during busy times there is a great work-life balance. Benefits for the most part are really good.

    Cons

    Not very competitive tuition reimbursement but other than that it's a solid place to work for.

    Pros

    I work in the Tempe Fab and enjoy coming to work everyday. The people I work with are fun and very supportive.

    Cons

    I can't really think of anything. If you do your job life is great.

    Advice to Management

    Other reviews have commented on lower than industry pay. This company strives to stay competitive with fabs outside of the US. Their goal is to keep US jobs in the US and not close the Fabs. There are only so many slices in the pie and tough decisions have to be made everyday to keep th Fabs open. Management is doing a great job of keeping employees employed in the US. Keep it up!
