    Pros

    Pay is good, lots of holiday time and they are very flexible on how you use it. Not required to work overtime, just got to get your work done. Good solid benefits, helps to offset the Idaho income tax. Pretty relaxed environment overall

    Cons

    Not a clear path to promotions, Some teams I work with are not that bright, but most of my team is pretty bright so it works out.

    Pros

    Top notch technology, good benefits, good general attitude. Boise Idaho is a great place for men

    Cons

    For women I would seriously reconsider moving to boise idaho. It is a small town that is stuck in the 1960s in terms of women's rights. Women are accepted as 4 things: stay at home wife, teacher, secretary, nurse. That's it. Much of this ideology is carried into the work place at micron. I had coworkers make remarks such as "I don't understand how people make a household work with two working parents, that could be bad for the kids". I also found that you get a lot of teasing and strange remarks that you don't get in larger, more liberal cities. It's also never a good idea to work for a company that is the "only game in town" but that's up to you.

    Pros

    As mentioned above, good work environment and great people. The benefits were outstanding, compensation is fair. The time-off policy (TOP) very good benefit.

    Cons

    The overall communication from leadership was poor...the employee training was fair. The tech support was very limited, went to "off-shore" support...(outsourcing)

    Pros

    There is room for growth within the organisation
    The company is experiencing a change in policy thus creating a better work environment i.e: Elimination of smoking rooms and replacing them with game rooms and relaxation areas.

    Cons

    Office politics seem to get in the way of project deadlines
    Old guard doesn't seem to want to let go of outdated practices which tends to hinder innovative thinking i.e thinking out the box

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to staff members who are willing to give their opinion as these are usually the more proactive members of the team.
