    I worked at Microchip Technology full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Stable work with min standards benefits- 401K is based on how well the company does and have to work there 5 yrs to receive the full amount. 50% if lucky. I get $1 for $1 now and no cost health insurance for my family after leaving them. There are better jobs out there. They meeting says all the millons they are making and when I comes to review they have nothing for hard workers to give. The workers there are decent...

    Cons

    When managed by Microsemi - It was managed badly. Stock with Microchip dropped sharply. This culture is the "lucky you have a job" culture and if you are not in Engineering you get treated like second class citizens Don't expect raises, career opportunities or a decent company party anytime soon. People are leaving just like me. I would look elsewhere. Contractors take a very long time to get hired on.

    Advice to Management

    I think MicroChip will do a better job than Microsemi on managing but it will take some time to get out of the water. I think the new CEO is alright and will get this boat floating again soon.

    CEO can't keep his hand our of the employees pocket.

    Advice to Management

    Cash bonus plans are suppose to be just that CASH. You're employees cannot eat stock options that don't become cash for 6 months. Knock it off already....pay out what you agreed to.
