    Pros

    Anyone who is not happy here has probably created the negativity themselves! Myself and everyone on my team who are working hard and are performing well couldn't be happier. It seems like people who are not happy and complaining are just nay-sayers and aren't smart enough to recognize that they are the issue; not this company, their leaders, or co-workers! Flexibility-check, stability-check, interesting work-check, company with vision-check! I could go on and on :)

    Cons

    The only thing I can think of is that at times it takes management to identify and execute performance management with employees who are not performing well.

    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!

    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

    Great place to work. The company lives its values - they are not just for display. Strong culture and a very fair company to work for.

    Cons

    Happy employees don't leave and tend to stay forever. Due to this opportunities don't come by often. However, growth still does provide for some.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    One very good thing about Microchip is that there are no layoffs. I have never seen a person getting fired in downtime. They give lot of restricted stocks and shares over the time which is really good. Also, very relaxed work environment with almost nil work pressure. You can actually have lot of fun while you are in Microchip.

    Cons

    Management doesn't take any risks which can be sometimes considered as con.
