A great company to work for, good for starters

Field Applications Engineer (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

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

ProsVery organized company, well-documented, good training for people who want to learn from the industry; great working environment and good team.

ConsProblem with the marketing & business development strategy with the big industrial environment... product is difficult to expand due to commoditized by other competitors.

Advice to Senior Managementbe more flexible, be more proactive with the business, should focus more on cost-down of the sourcing and marketing strategy, not focus on employee reduction.

You can see it sinking

Engineer (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

I have been working at Micron Technology

ProsGood vacation time, reasonable pay
Stay here if you are waiting to retire and want an easy life

ConsNO future, No goals, Yearly review is a joke, your boss doesnt even know what you are doing.
Middle management is totally useless and incompetent, and has no power.
But the worst things in this place in San jose are :
1) this is the 1st company I work that count your hours every week and we are not paid by hours!
2) Biasness to its fullest! Top management pick the people based on race and their own favorite to be promoted, not based on their performance.

Advice to Senior ManagementForget it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Not a good place to work for

Design Engineer (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

I have been working at Micron Technology

ProsThey have some latest design works going on in their field of business. Nice to work if you want to learn something new.

ConsCareer growth will be a dead end if you choose to stay there. Seems like there had been no increase in compensation and thats the main reason I quit. They give a damn about employees. As long as they get the work done from you, they remind us to be thankful for giving a job. No perks, no bonuses.

Advice to Senior ManagementKindly consider that employees are humans and not some automatic production machines.

A punch in, punch out kind of place--not very exciting

Senior Engineer (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

I worked at Micron Technology

ProsAs a senior engineer with a family, I appreciated the work life balance.

ConsPoor salary and sometimes cryptic bonus plans. Limited benefits compared to others in industry. Lack of stock compensation or even ESPP (when I left in 2006).

Micron was a place to "punch in and out the clock" and get on with your personal life. Some might consider it a bit on the sleepy side compared to other companies.

Also it seemed that everyone was a "lifer" Micron employee--many never worked anywhere else in the chip industry. This showed up in a lack of understanding of how things work elsewhere.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to continue to diversify into non commodity markets. Give new markets time to develop instead of reverting to DRAM every time there is an industry downturn.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Lukewarm water.

Design Engineer (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

I have been working at Micron Technology

ProsNot as risky as a startup, so the company will be around for a good few years to come. Benefits are OK, but nothing spectacular.

ConsNot an exciting place to be. Because of its size, Micron does move slowly. The only sudden changes are the unfortunate layoffs, which seem to come out of the blue when management panics on some news. Badging is required both on the way in and on the way out, making it feel like a soft prison. Management can check the in/out times, and although I haven't heard of anyone having been disciplined because of too few hours worked, people have been reminded to check the hours. People who are not paid by the hour.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink about making Micron an exciting place to work, not just the most efficient memory producer.
