    I have been working at Microchip Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Microchip business success over 100+ profitable quarters is shared with all employees through stock and bonuses. It's a great place to work where your individual contributions matter. Training is considered essential and leaders are grown from within. Our CEO promotes communication at all levels and updates us quarterly on how the company is doing and how we can contribute.

    Cons

    Our growth through acquisition has challenged employees to adapt to lots of changes in responsibilities and organizational structures. Even though it's challenging is a great problem to have

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating!

    I have been working at Microchip Technology full-time

    Pros

    Successful, stable company with opportunities for advancement
    Compensation is good- quarterly bonuses have been REALLY GOOD!!
    All employees are shareholders which is awesome!
    Benefits are good- I especially love that we have a medical clinic onsite and the tuition reimbursement is another great perk.
    AMAZING CULTURE!
    Collaborative, team based environment which I love. Leadership is approachable and committed to employees professional development and growth. The work is challenging and employees have opportunities to work on projects outside their normal job responsibilities that they are interested in. Employee empowerment is a huge part of the culture. Employees are given the flexibility and freedom to make decisions which builds trust and inspires people to do their best.

    Cons

    None- I feel very fortunate to work for an honest, ethical company like Microchip.

    Advice to Management

    The quarterly communication meetings are great. It's really nice that the CEO takes the time to over what is happening in all the different business groups and the company as a whole to give all employees a big picture perspective and the opportunity to ask questions.

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

    Pros

    Work-life balance. Decent facilities. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    This will take a book. From the CEO to the bottom manager...their all stucknin 1980's management mode...they still believe in Synergy but have added global design teaming to it. They try to apply linear manfacturing based time models to recursive design flows. There is little reinvestment in logistics, because the stock dividend is sucking too much money out of the system. Benefits and compensation are the worst of my career. Trivial 401k match even with 100+ profitable quarters. Many medical claims take months to resolve.

    Advice to Management

    None. I truly believe you don't care.

    I have been working at Microchip Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's a job. Pays the bills.

    Cons

    Work load doubles every year due to bigger and more desperate acquisitions, CEO gives himself and his two friends brought over from Intel tens of millions of dollars every year while telling everybody else to "lose the entitlement mentality", never expect any pay raise and just be grateful to have jobs. And this at a time when Microchip has record financial results. The CEO has an automatic 8% annual pay increase in his employment contract. He gave himself 12% this year and another $10 million "leadership bonus". He is also receiving more than $1.5 million every quarter in dividend payments. He is a billionaire or close to being one but he doesn't give anything to the ordinary employees. Look at the job postings. They are offering 20% less than anybody else for a given engineering position. Work conditions are worse than at any acquired site.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being greedy monsters

    I worked at Microchip Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Microchip has a great health care, stock and benefits program, educational training and really great people.

    Cons

    Although work/life balance is promoted, it depends who you work for and if there is an acquisition going on (which seems like always). Hard work and dedication is rewarded with more responsibility, more stress and the same pay. Any change or new ideas are very slow to be implemented, if at all. Business units and regions compete for dollars so there is no global cohesiveness.

    Advice to Management

    There are many great people in your organization going above and beyond to make the company profitable. The review process is often not used and those 'go-getters' aren't recognized. Bonuses quarterly across the board are great but hard working individuals should get increases more often.

    Re-invest in some of the older areas of the buildings while you build the new building. Some areas in C2 and C3 are very run down and dirty and need carpet replaced.

    I have been working at Microchip Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been working with Microchip Technology Inc. for more than 10 years now and I can say that the Microchip Technology Inc. is one of the best company to work with. Reasons are, culture, family oriented, colleagues are great and Microchip Technology Inc. gave importance to its employees.

    Cons

    I don't have anything to share about the 'CONS' of the company because for me, it is one of the best.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Microchip Technology Inc. is still standing because of your (management) strategies.
