    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.

    Pros

    Company culture, loyal to employees, and great environment to work in

    Cons

    Part of the benefit of working here is the environment, you'll need to take this into consideration when looking at salaries since they can be a little on the low end of the spectrum.

    Pros

    Company is proud of its values and culture, and want to make sure new employees are aware of it. CEO and management team at least set the tone they are available for open discussion any time.

    Cons

    It takes a long, long time for HR to get the act together and complete the offer process after acquisition. In general it looks like pay is on the low side.

    I have been working at Microchip Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people are awesome. Most days, I didn't mind going to work. They provide parties every couple of months, and the immediate management wants to support you.

    Cons

    Pay is insulting. I think a lot of fast food jobs pay more. And a Production Specialist is the lowest on the totem pole, and from the corporate level, you are trivial and replaceable. Tough times from bad management decisions fall on the Specialists.

    Advice to Management

    Provide learning and training opportunities to all the employees, not just management. Provide opportunities for advancement. Make pay at least somewhat competitive.

    Pros

    Overall good environment to work at. Nice people around, relaxed working environment. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Not analog driven company so no expose to hard core analog designs.

    Advice to Management

    Consider a bigger amount of raise for good performer.
