    One year in - looking good.

    Engineer (Current Employee) Boise, ID

    ProsProfessional atmosphere; motivated coworkers; work/life balanced; promising outlook.

    ConsCareer advancement slow; compensation is low-average; some dead weight in the company; must commit to Boise (which has few other engineering options if something happens).

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove efficiency to reduce overhead; get rid of "lifers" who are just barely performing; work to bring in other tech companies to Boise to make it a new tech hub.

    Great experience, I learned a lot.

    Product Engineer Intern (Current Employee) Boise, ID

    ProsMicron takes care of their employees. Competitive pay and great benefits. On-site medical clinic and gym. Possibility to travel the world. Promotions are not based on education but performance. Everyone works together and is willing to help you meet your goals

    ConsIt's in Boise, so it's not for everyone. Other than that I did not experience any other cons except the summer heat in Boise.

    Great company with excellent benefits and flexible work environment.

    Subject Matter Expert (Former Employee) Boise, ID

    ProsI started my career as a software engineer and advanced to a subject matter expert when I left 10 years later. There was never a dull moment at Micron. Enabling automation for a 24x7 factory was challenging but exciting. The opportunities for advancement are numerous. As long as you are adding value to the organization, you get complete freedom to do what you like to do and prove yourself. The organization structure is informal and flexible. Company promotes a good work-life balance.

    ConsThe semi-conductor industry is highly competitive and requires constant upkeep with technological advancements. Failing to do so leads to loss of market share and eventually the company could be forced out of the market.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome tension exists across different production facilities of the company. Some sites feel their needs are underrepresented. This could be overcome by promoting cross-site dialogue and communication.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
