    Pros

    Work life balance. 8 to 5 company.

    Cons

    As people within the company call it Micro cheap. Salary is below market. No raises. Tools are old. They use old technology.
    Some managers are so bad that people keep leaving, but for whatever reason they are untouchable.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest, don't hire people and promise what you know you can't deliver.
    Take care of your employees.
    Get rid of bad managers, don't keep them because they have been there for awhile. Listen to your exit survives.

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance with very high job security as company truly value you as its asset and does it's best to keep you around even when economy is doing worse.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of type of products it makes (off the shelf microcontrollers), the pressure of using cutting edge technology is not there, so if you are into working on latest and greatest technology then this is not the place for you.

    I worked at Microchip Technology (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compressed work shift so you get 3-4 days off in a row.

    Cons

    Pay below market range for other companies in this industry. Direct supervision is atrocious unless your part of thier click. No cross training available so your stuck doing one job. No opportunity to move up regardless of what they say, they will list an opening but have already given to someone else. You waste your time applying and interviewing. No pay increases... ever.

    Advice to Management

    Go undercover into your fans for a month and find out what's really going on. I believe microchip wants the 'culture' they promote but it is absolutely not being practiced or promoted within the fab by immediate managment.

    Pros

    Some smart and interesting people.

    Cons

    Management seems like a mess. They just come up with a new idea without putting much thought into it and expect everything to work. Seems like there is a lot of bickering and squabbling between upper management, but I get little exposure to that.

    Advice to Management

    Create a better culture.
