    Pros

    One of the few IDMs that promote from within
    Lots of opportunities for professional growth through training
    No stigma associated with frequent job changes (1-2yrs tenure)
    State of the art wafer fab and probe operation in Manassas Va
    Lots of expat assignments available
    Lots of opportunities for project work
    No shortage of resources to get the job done

    Cons

    Most managers in the inner circle have never worked anywhere else and are a bit narrow-minded as a result.
    Outsiders have a hard time assimilating, many have short tenures.
    Jobs are highly compartmentalized

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on the compartmentalization and let employees operate more cross-functionally

    Pros

    Large amount of opportunity to advance, the turnover rate at the MTV (Micron Technology Virginia) site is high, if you have no life and want to work 60 hours a week for 40 hours’ worth of pay then MTV is the right place for you.

    Cons

    You will be doing the work that two or three people should be doing, the company keeps the labor force low to make budget. Living in a place where the cost of living is high does not help the company keep employees, there is a constant revolving door with employees. I do not blame the company for the situation we are in, having a manufacturing plant a few miles away from D.C. is not an obvious choice. If you are fresh out of college with an engineering degree MTV is a good place for you to gain experience, but once you have two kids and a mortgage you should start looking elsewhere.

    Pros

    -Very busy atmosphere with lots of new and interesting projects
    -Get to work with some very intelligent and experienced engineers
    -New and emerging technology
    -PTO is above average
    -Decent starting salary and some promotions

    Cons

    -Departmental management has lots of politics

    -Career can plateau very quickly

    Advice to Management

    There's no point in hiring shift engineers without an intention to bring them into bigger projects. Career development should be a focus.

    Pros

    Work with a lot of excelent results oriented engineers. Relative to other semiconductor manufacturers from what I have heard we have a lot more latitude for creative problem solving and engineering. The salaries are good - I think.

    Cons

    Semiconductor industry is inherently unstable.

    Advice to Management

    build better relations based upon trust and mutual respect and accountability between upper management and the professional engineering staff.


  10. Intern

    Pros

    Working in the high tech industry. Experienced people you can learn from. Diverse group of people to work with.

    Cons

    The computer workstations can be quite old. Depending on the fab, there can be not much to do in surrounding area. Subjective, but how do you feel about rows and rows of cubicles as a workplace?

    Advice to Management

    They've hung in there through recessions, and consolidations so I think they're doing okay.

    Solid place to start a career but it is easy to get stalled regardless of performance.

    Pros

    Great work life balance with decent compensation. Great if you want to settle down and have a nice stable job with no travel and not make waves. It can be very interesting to work with cutting edge DRAM and NAND technology.

    Cons

    Very vague and loosely defined promotion path. Since there are so many employees, much of the work is compartmentalized compared to smaller semiconductor companies. This leaves you a lot more focused in your area, but it is more difficult to migrate to other companies since you have such a fixed role.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to improve efficiency by reducing meetings and create a more reproducible business process for integrating data from various departments. Create a better path forward for individual development.
