What Employees Say
I have been working at Micron Technology full-time for more than 10 years
The people. One thing you will find is that the vast majority (there will always be naysayers/pessimists) is that we are all rowing in the same direction. We are working together and making our... business better. I know I can go to my peers, team, or other teams for assistance and support and it won't be a challenge or fight. Instead we will work to solve the problem or issue and do so together. The work, we are not a sexy company in name recognition. However the work we do and the products we provide are critical to the technical innovation that happens every day on every continent. Without Micron's products the world would not be as technologically advanced as it is. We come to work knowing that what we do and accomplish enable the innovation of those working to make the world more accessible, cure previously incurable illnesses, solve problems thought to be impossible. It really is amazing to know we are a critical part of that. Lastly corporate responsibility. Micron is a global leader when it comes to corporate social responsibility. Whether it is from ethical sourcing, recycling, community engagement, charitable giving, human rights and treatment, and any other number of topics I know Micron is committed to being the best corporate citizen it can and it truly encourages us as team members to be the same.
We are a global company, this means long days, nights, mornings, etc... as we work to collaborate with our peers, suppliers, customers around the world. We have, over the past 2 years, have seen a... genuine emphasis on improving our work-life balance (2-3 years ago I would have rated this a 1). However, the realities of being multinational will require flexibility in your work schedule. The great news is we as leaders are understanding and supportive of modified work schedules. The downside is that this will never be fully mitigated so if you are considering a career here, you should be aware that you may have days that start early, go late, or both to enable the effective collaboration of our global organization so don't be surprised by it. It can be difficult and challenging but it is getting better. I just never expect work-life balance to be our greatest strength.
Advice to Management
Keep up with communicating the strategy and helping shift our culture. The changes since Sanjay took the CEO position are what we desperately needed to take Micron from a scrappy survivor to becoming... a dominant and mature player in the semiconductor space.
I have been working at Flex full-time for more than 5 years
There are a lot of different learning opportunities because Flex does contract manufacturing. This means that you get to learn a broad skill set since each project is different and a lot of the... projects are 6 months projects. The opportunities for learning at Flex are many.
The office that I worked at has 3 people to a cube. It is very difficult to focus on your work when you are constantly interrupted.
