    Good place to work, but promotion path is rocky at best

    Pros

    Great paid time off system, benefits are strong, and it is hard to beat the starting salaries in Boise, ID. Enjoy working on complex problems and see recommendations get a serious consideration.

    Cons

    Promotion path is not consistent between organizations within the company. In one area you can be told by management that you will not get a promotion to a certain level because of your degree. However, move to another department and the game totally changes and you can get promoted. This is two different areas in the same company! The yearly survey is also a joke. When you see a specific area review their experiences as poor year after year and having the lowest satisfaction scores compared to all other areas, management needs to take a step back and try to change that path. However, management seems to not take the data to heart and attribute the low scores the a few "grumpy"members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to make the promotional process the same for all departments within the company. You can't have certain areas putting road block for promotion while other areas providing fast passes. Management needs to take the annual surveys more seriously our don't waste our time and company resources to conduct the survey.

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

    Pros

    Can learn a lot. Suitable for those people who are very into semiconductors and process experiment

    Cons

    People there are very unfreindly. The stress level is too high. They will throw you endless of work and expect you to finish without bother if you can finish on time a not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please think of your people more and ensure they have good work-life balance. That's the reason why the turnover rate in micron is one the highest in Singapore.

    I have been working at Micron Technology full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, competitive pay, lots of oppurtunity for career advancement and the workforce development to support that. Everything is seemingly laid out in a logical manner.

    Cons

    As far as a company in Boise, this is about a the most competitive pay you'll find. People tend to come back for employment after leaving as there are limited other options in the valley.

    Cons

    Nothing is really bad there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to have the upper echelons like you guys do. Some are good at not having those clicks, but others seem to make them without thinking.

    Current Employee - Senior Process Engineer

    I have been working at Micron Technology full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Can learn a lot of new development from Micron RND in USA
    Salary decent for more experienced engineers
    Work is cyclical with periods of crazy hours and periods of relatively free. each period can last a couple of months
    Some really smart experienced engineers and managers

    Cons

    Lots of politics. need to know the right people to get ahead
    Employees within a team are forced to compete against each other by some bad bosses. leads to lesser cooperation and finger pointing. everyone is trying to bring down everyone else rather than focusing on improvement.
    Lots of bad useless managers.
    Some newly hired engineers cannot converse even in simple english

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    promote people to management based on merit and not based on who is your friend. This will make engineer's life easier and willing to put in the long hours to achieve stretch goals.
