    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.

    Company has a great culture that they built and is very stable.

    Don't expect to make much. If pay matched work, this would be the best company around.

    Value your senior employees especially if they are involved beyond the average ones to make the company better and train new hires to be good as them some day.

    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.

    Decent company for experience, lots of overtime available due to ramping based on China's expected economy growth of 7% for this year 2015.

    Pros

    3-4 days off in a row. Competitive pay, very friendly work environment, paid training.

    Cons

    Start off temp and cant miss over 2 days or you're laid off. 3-4 twelve hour shifts in a row. Not enough time to go home and relax. Very tiring. Standing is required for most the day.

    Advice to Management

    Management really cares for employees.
