The corporate management is outstanding in the way they manage the company. Their loyalty to employees
Compensation is very low compared to other companies. Some middle-management or business unit management struggles with the upper company management culture.

The managers are very flexible. They don't micromanage. The company has profit sharing. If you are in sales then you get extra profit sharing to compensate for the fact that you don't get commission. This is actually very nice because it allows for more collaboration.
The biggest con is that there is only 10 days of vacation when you first start. After two years, it increases by one day each year to a max of 20 days. This is ridiculously little amount of vacation.

Most people are friendly and make serious effort to support one another when they get stuck. Always something new to work on (i.e., lots of learning). Great development programs & technical resources Laid back. People give each other space when they need it and you have agency to complete tasks by yourself. Solid team environment. No blaming people for honest mistakes.
Constantly new projects popping up. Not necessarily a bad thing, but if you don't know how to manage time or prioritize what is important... you may find the workflow overbearing. There is the occasional dead weight coworker. Not many, but you will probably meet at least one somewhere in the organization. The employees tend to trend towards the older side so it is usually someone who is close to retirement. I personally think the great environment/culture makes up for this.

Microchip is a great place to work. Well-positioned in a rapidly-growing industry, and good at maintaining a cozy and friendly company culture even as they make BILLIONS of dollars a year. I've worked for another giant in the industry (Intel), and Microchip is far less stressful and honestly pretty fun. While I can't speak for everyone, as far as I can tell, the culture seems pretty consistent across the departments. I work as an equipment technician and have enjoyed the team and culture greatly.
Benefits here are slightly worse than they were at Intel. I got almost double the PA there, and an extra week of vacation. Intel also had better health insurance and paid 100% of my college tuition to any school I wanted. (Microchip only pays about $6000 a year).1

A history of not laying of people and sharing the pain. Unless you were an employee in a fab.
Having opened the door wide to double ordering during the boom of the pandemic they are still loading up their customers and channels with piles of inventory. There is a brain drain leaving a vacuum. with micromanagement by insecure managers on the rise. People used to love their CEO now those close to the top work in fear of the current guy. Useless HR who just apply policies created by the corner office.

Great people, transparent management, great culture
Standard lapses of any large corporation. Not everyone works very hard because of non commission style
- 2.0Nov 14, 2023Electrical Engineer InternCurrent Employee, less than 1 yearGresham, OR
- great gig if you like getting paid to sit in a cubicle doing nothing
- literally the lowest possible hourly pay that my internship organization allows. I'm basically working to barely survive in this area, just so I can keep going back to work. It's a waste of time. - was given borderline pointless projects - didn't learn anything
- 4.0Nov 10, 2023Production SpecialistCurrent Employee, less than 1 yearTempe, AZ
Night shift has a good work environment. Supervisors are very nice and laid back.
Pay isn't good. Night shift makes 18% and day shift makes 5%.
