    I worked at Micron Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is forward looking company that has traditional roots where there is some sense of emphasis on employees and they try to tough out the storm rather than rolling heads at first sign of economic problems

    Cons

    The problem is when an employee is working in a remote location near customer. At the headquarter employees are well taken care of.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at Micron Technology full-time (more than an year)

    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)
