    Good compensation but management is sometimes bizarre.

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Boise, ID

    ProsThe purchase of Elpida was brilliant, and they are good at new technology (although frequently lagging competitors). Compensation is good. Opportunities for advancement are good, as is compensation, and tuition reimbursement.

    ConsHealth insurance for specialists is limited to very few providers, and in come cases, no local provider.
    Over the several years, Micron seems to care less and less about their employees. Top management appears to have hired business consultants and have launched crazy internal programs. Environment is too rushed to have a good culture. Internal feedback does not seem to be considered to a great degree. Break room perks are minimal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    People matter in words but deeds indicate otherwise

    Software Engineer II (Current Employee)
    Boise, ID

    ProsHas provided steady employment. I enjoy the people I work with.

    ConsCulture has changed to managing resources (people) through more frequent layoffs. Lack of advancement or pay increases because economy is bad. Once economy began to return still no advancement or pay increases. Pay across U.S. and international sites is not the same for the same or similar jobs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompensation for the work done needs to be similar across sites. There needs to be some way to determine pay scale by skills and ability. There is too much subjective criteria in the Performance Appraisal system. There needs to be more skill and ability based criteria in Performance Appraisals.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    OK company if you want to live in Boise

    Senior Product Marketing Manager (Former Employee)
    Folsom, CA

    ProsThey are pretty advanced technology-wise and have some good Senior Manager/Director level people. Also company manages expenses pretty well

    ConsFolsom site is losing power to Boise. A lot of pressure on experienced employees to take lower salaries or leave. Not willing to invest to gain growth business opportunities...trying to "save their way to growth"

    Advice to Senior ManagementA lot of good individual talent and some Director-level as well. Need to invest in good people and let them do their jobs

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    overview of design career

    Design Engineer (Current Employee)
    Milpitas, CA

    ProsWorking load is acceptable. A lot of paid-off time.

    ConsNot very good job security. Almost a layout-off every 2~3 years. Difficult to get promoted

    Great place to build up your skill set for young engineers.

    Process Integration Engineer (Former Employee)
    Boise, ID

    ProsWorking with cutting edge toolsets, having large budgets to aggressively attack R&D, lots of talented and intelligent senior engineers to learn from. Compensation, benefits, stock options.

    ConsMentality that the more time you are at your desk the better worker you are. High burn out rate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCull the weak engineers/technicians/operators from the team regardless of years of service. Put more technical leadership in place and ignore some of the business unit's input.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Really Interesting

    Intern (Former Employee)

    ProsIt is a good place for an Internship. People are willing to help you and to transmit their know-how.

    ConsFew opportunities to remain after the Internship

    Overworked, underpaid, poorly managed, lacking in opportunities

    Engineer (Current Employee)
    Manassas, VA

    ProsLocation - close to Washington DC

    ConsWorkload - a typical team is understaffed and overloaded with work. Typical complain is being unable to be on top of things. Shift personnel are untrained or lacking in ownership so they always seek first shift support or 'nod'.
    Management - or lack of it. Top-heavy, mostly white male. Some got their degrees from Phoenix, de Vry or some online 'school'. Management and leadership skills are acquired thru trial and error at the expense of employees.
    Promotion - very minimal. Needs attrition or know someone in upper management a 'la ole boys network
    Salary - not enough considering the cost of living here in Northern VA. Some companies in AZ offer the same salary despite lower cost of living.
    Business prospect - looks good ... for now. Samsung seems to be winning the business long term.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour workers are your lifeblood. Treat them well and learn to keep them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
