Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Manager

I have been working at Micron Technology full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Current Employee - Manager

I have been working at Leica Geosystems full-time for more than a year

Pros

Core values for parent company, Hexagon AB, are that it is profit-driven, professional, innovative, engaged, customer-focused, and entrepreneurial. I find that the company really does live out these... values. Yes, this means that employees are under a lot of pressure to deliver. But contrast that to a company that does not deliver profits...this means that the future would be in question. Employees are given a lot of room to drive projects without micro-management from above, and this is refreshing. vision-mission

Cons

The company is pretty lean, so if you're someone who does not like to be accountable for your results, then it won't be the best place for you. But don't worry... there are plenty of companies... where you can go be a zombie, just not here. As a lean organization, there's not a lot of obvious positions above you. You can make your own success with a well-considered idea to drive incremental business, but the onus is largely on you.

Advice to Management

Keep encouraging the entrepreneurial, innovative culture, and invest a bit more in career development.
