    I have been working at Micron Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    I have been working at Micron Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Saying that you work for a company who exploits professionally.

    Cons

    Nothing much other than employee exploitation, fake promises, saying that Boise is cheaper and saying that we can work for 50k though you are worth 5times that. HR policies are worse than any service based or startup company. They always target laid off candidates so as to pay them less salary.

    Advice to Management

    Go to kindergarten to learn lessons.

    I worked at Micron Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Boise is a terrific place to live and work and it is this safe small town feel that keeps many at Micron. The work is challenging and there is often room for creativity. As of late, greater hiring has been responsible for more upbeat fortunes (but the semiconductor memory industry fluctuates regularly).

    Cons

    Politicking and advancement through pedigree are part of the culture at Micron. Most experiences with management convince that they would have been much better off staying as independent contributors because they do not care for development or work/life balance. Poorly managed to the top with little hope of overtaking competition without significant changes.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the people that while the claim was always made are the most important, are not treated as such. Set promotion guidelines and stick to them. Investigate more than M&A for growth.


  7. Only focussing on my department - Top heavy, zero trust and zero recognition

    I have been working at Micron Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The other engineers that I work with.

    Cons

    All layers of leaders within Product Engineering are driving everyone away. They are having problems retaining people but is not doing anything to keep current employees happy. Not talking about foot massages but the constant finger pointing, witch hunting, unreasonable deadlines and etc is not doing anyone any favor.

    Advice to Management

    Value your engineers, trust that your engineers are not coming into work to screw things up intentionally and lead from the front.

    I have been working at Micron Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work can be fairly fast paced. I'm frequently working on several designs simultaneously. There are a lot of opportunities for growth, or working in other departments.

    Cons

    Historically this company has had frequent, large, layoffs although that has gotten better over the last two years. You never know in this industry when the next one is going to hit however. Information is passed through tribal knowledge more than anything. The management can be quite disorganized. They have a sink or swim attitude towards new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Document things better.

    I worked at Micron Technology full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, good pay, decent benefits, smart people

    Cons

    Some managers lack experience with the technology they are managing. Performance is metric driven. Managers of some groups have poor people skills.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to develop relationships with team members, to listen to their team members, and to act as an advocate for their team.
