I have been working at Micron Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Location - close to Washington DC

Cons

Workload - a typical team is understaffed and overloaded with work. Typical complain is being unable to be on top of things. Shift personnel are untrained or lacking in ownership so they always seek first shift support or 'nod'.
Management - or lack of it. Top-heavy, mostly white male. Some got their degrees from Phoenix, de Vry or some online 'school'. Management and leadership skills are acquired thru trial and error at the expense of employees.
Promotion - very minimal. Needs attrition or know someone in upper management a 'la ole boys network
Salary - not enough considering the cost of living here in Northern VA. Some companies in AZ offer the same salary despite lower cost of living.
Business prospect - looks good ... for now. Samsung seems to be winning the business long term.

Advice to Management

Your workers are your lifeblood. Treat them well and learn to keep them.
