    I have been working at Micron Technology as an intern

    Pros

    Hard-working co-workers, no language barrier between person to person. Everyone is ecstatic on their feet even in the engineering side. Technology is guaranteed for another 15 years.

    Cons

    Intern work is never fun, typically only hire 6 month employees. Very volatile industry. Never 100% job guarantee unless technology is moving forward

    Advice to Management

    Needs more free time or more managers.


  2. Good company, but still suffers all the issues of high tech and manufacturing companies

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

    Pros

    Company tries to keep up an image of caring about their employees. Great benefits (both monetary/perks and wellness) and yearly employee surveys are both examples of this. Competitive salaries are a plus and the yearly market adjustment as well. Working a shift schedule means you get 3-4 days off. You can accumulate a lot of vacation time. Great focus on team member safety.

    Cons

    When it comes down to it, it's still manufacturing in the high tech industry. The company goes through it's cycles of up and downs like any other tech company and everyone is aware of the potential for layoffs depending on how the market is doing. Manufacturing also means being on call 24/7 unless you're a supporting role in "non-value added" departments. There's a certain ceiling you hit as far as moving up. There are always job openings on the manufacturing floor but fewer job openings for 8AM to 5PM work schedule. Even if you get a position that's 8-5 it doesn't mean you' only work 8-5 because you'll be on call. Making the transition from the manufacturing floor to the office can be difficult unless you know the right people and you're a little lucky. There still exists an "us vs. them" mentality between those who work on the floor and those who work in the engineering offices. Life can be stressful and unpredictable. Even though you can accumulate a lot of paid time off, it doesn't mean you'll be able to use them if you're working on an important project or if another member of your team is scheduled out at the same time or if your team is severely short handed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the yearly employee survey and great benefits. Try and figure out more flexible work schedules for both people on the manufacturing floor and the offices.

    I worked at Micron Technology (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    One of the few IDMs that promote from within Lots of opportunities for professional growth through training No stigma associated with frequent job changes (1-2yrs tenure) State of the art wafer fab and probe operation in Manassas Va Lots of expat assignments available Lots of opportunities for project work No shortage of resources to get the job done

    Cons

    Most managers in the inner circle have never worked anywhere else and are a bit narrow-minded as a result. Outsiders have a hard time assimilating, many have short tenures. Jobs are highly compartmentalized

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on the compartmentalization and let employees operate more cross-functionally

    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.

    Advice to Management

    There's no point in hiring shift engineers without an intention to bring them into bigger projects. Career development should be a focus.
