Wonderful place to work

I worked at Microchip Technology full-time for more than 3 years

Pros-Flat hierarchy for such a large company in 2008
-Paid back paycuts very soon after bottom of US recession
-Varied projects to work on
-50% engineering, 50% people-facing technical sales
-Competitive pay
-Co workers actually know what they're doing

Cons-Located in San Jose, CA which is really boring
-I hear it's not such a great place to work anymore, much more political

Microchip Technology - A Great Place to Work For

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Chandler, AZ

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

ProsBest place to learn and grow
Ample opportunities to experiment
Colleagues around are very helpful
Very Enriching experience
Very good work life balance

ConsI personally have not seen issues or concerns at Microchip. After working for Microchip Technology for more than seven years, I have seen some of the highs and lows of the Semiconductor Industry in general and the Top Management here knows how to anticipate change and they are always ready to take care when things around are changing such that the outside Semiconductor Market does not really create much of an impact to our employees.

Great enviornment, great employees, great culture.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Chandler, AZ

I have been working at Microchip Technology full-time for less than a year

ProsGreat coworkers with industry experience in a variety of fields who you can learn from everyday. Management feels very natural with very little oversight on projects and help you develop your skills with and for the company.

ConsNone so far, I am loving it here.

Advice to Senior ManagementMove forward with more innovative hardware and software technology solutions. Get rid of legacy equipment and programs that have slowly become the backbone of the entire corporation, requiring costly maintenance and upgrades on a constant basis.

Lots of new opportunities as the company grows both organincally and through acquisition.
