    Pros

    Good management philosophy, fostered through a set of "Guiding Values." There is a distinct management open-door policy for all employees on all levels, i.e., any employee can stop by a manager's office (including the CEO) at any time to speak about issues. There is a strong feeling that the employee is truly important to the success of the company.

    Keep listening to your employees. Keep up the great work.

    Current Employee - Intern - Hourly in Chandler, AZ

    I have been working at Microchip Technology part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    See title. Hours were flexible, and the people above me were laid back and very helpful when I needed help. Hard to ask for a better work culture.

    Cons

    Uninteresting from a computer science perspective. I learned a lot, but the problems I was solving were internal (obviously, given that Microchip's not a software company) and not very brain-tickling. Also, pay was not very competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better, but otherwise, keep doing your thing.

    Pros

    - Very helpful employees
    - Stability
    - Cash Bonuses

    Cons

    - Communication meetings where the CEO tells the younger generation " They're Entitled"
    - Little to no advancement opportunities due to the older generation never leaving
    - Absolutely no recognition for doing good work. No thank yous, no promotion announcements, etc.
    - A LOT of overtime work. Meetings day in and day out, but people somehow wonder why no work gets done?

    Advice to Management

    - You will be continually out-competed for top talent by companies who offer higher wages. Stocks that vest every few years only goes so far when somebody can easily make 15K more doing the same job at Intel.
    - The younger generation isn't "entitled". It's just easy to know that we're underpaid with sites such as glassdoor. We weren't the ones who got in when the shares were $1.
    - The younger people in your company have no idea where to advance or go so they decide to move on to other companies. Be more transparent about HOW and WHY people get promoted.

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

    Pros

    Microchip treats it's employees like a family. Through the good times, they share in the prosperity, and in the downturns we all band together to help each other out. We all take shared sacrifices, which helps everyone. The people, from individual contributors, support staff, straight to the executive leadership operate with the guiding values in mind. I feel privledged to be part of such a fantastic organization.

    Cons

    The base salaries are a little lower than market in some areas, however, with the total comp philosophy (variable + base) makes the compensation package competitive. This approach which motivates everyone to contribute and share in the company's success.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes keeping costs low can be a challenge in order to get the right tools to efficiently and effectively deliver results, but you are given the opportunity to use creative ways to address the needs to meet commitments.

    None that U can think of.

    A telecommute option would be nice, especially being an international company where many roles can be executed either from the office or at home to give employees greater work/life balance.
