    Pros

    Pay
    Benefits
    If you get a good manager, they'll protect you from the directors.

    Cons

    The Good 'ol Boy Culture that has turned IM Flash into Micron over the last 10 years.
    Couldn't care less about employees as people, especially if they're technicians.
    Good 'ol Boy managers hire unqualified people to be in mid-senior level positions due to knowing them from Micron.
    Sloganeering (Speak Out? Only when they agree with what you say.)

    Advice to Management

    Think outside of your management box. Listen to your eventual reports. Let your superstars rise to the top instead of holding them down. Stop promoting problems and not promoting people who deserve it. Respect your employees because without them there wouldn't be any progress to monitor.

    I have been working at IM Flash Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive pay
    Great people
    Benefits are good as well
    Whether you do the bare minimum or put in an honest days work you will be payed the same.
    Great job for former plumber, HVAC tech, or mechanic.
    Its just like re-enlisting, and the culture are very military influenced.

    Cons

    Dangerous work environment
    12 hour rotating shifts
    2 year binding contract (slavery with more steps)
    Engineers create jobs for technicians based off of 0 data
    Technicians will always be on shift, even if you advance to supervisor.
    Career progression is intimidating, Engineers often work 60 hour week salaried.
    Most of the good advanced technical jobs are outsourced other countries.
    currently in a state of economic treading water to bring new product out.
    You will rarely touch a multi-meter, you will clean acid off of "robots" mostly windows though. You will be in a white clean room suit and often a layer of rubber acid gear.
    Its just like re-enlisting, and the culture are very military influenced.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck, you guys are doing a good job. As for filling this position in the future, don't put people who want to work on tech in a job where you clean acid off of tools.

    I have been working at IM Flash Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, PTO Program, school compensation, promoting healthy lifestyle through onsite gym and activities, solid insurance plan

    Cons

    Chaotic with new technologies rolling through, employees need to slow down and make better choices, management stress causing unhealthy work environment, rotating shift schedule from nights to days, promotions are acquired by writing a book about how of a hotshot you are (should be reviewed and decided based on merit, not how well you can boast about how you are the greatest).

    Advice to Management

    Realize that your employees are doing the best they can with what they have available. Encourage better decision making because bad decisions are the cause of how hard you push for results. Culture and values are diminishing due to how much pressure you put on your team members.

    Pros

    Benefits are hard to beat. I have taken over 2 weeks vacation to internationally every year since starting in addition to time off at other times. Compensation is fair. The people who work here feel like friends.

    Cons

    Like all places, your boss makes a big impact on your life. I have had both great and terrible managers.

    I worked at IM Flash Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    None that have any relevancy. No longer having to drag myself to work each day.

    Cons

    This is the absolute worst place I have ever worked in my professional career. My manager is the biggest micromanager I have ever had the misfortune to ever know. He envisions himself as a superior manager however he has zero ability at allow anyone to take the initiative or do anything. And if something good ever happened he took all the credit. If you are a self thinker and want to contribute to a successful work environment this is not the place for you.

    I went to work every single day with dread wondering what lack of integrity I would be faced with by my manager.

    Advice to Management

    Try to utilize your set of core vales you speak so highly of. These are in reality, non existent at your company at least by your managers and management.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits package, great team members, onsite medical clinic, onsite gym, comprehensive training program, excellent career mobility.

    Cons

    Low emphasis and value placed on strategic thinkers and innovators. Highly focused on short-term deliverables. Striving to be a culturally driven company but they fall short in their implementation of their whole vision.

    Advice to Management

    Give more recognition to innovators. Visible metrics for strategic work and innovation. Form more strategic teams that can act independently of the tactical drive.
