    I worked at Microchip Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Microchip has a great health care, stock and benefits program, educational training and really great people.

    Cons

    Although work/life balance is promoted, it depends who you work for and if there is an acquisition going on (which seems like always). Hard work and dedication is rewarded with more responsibility, more stress and the same pay. Any change or new ideas are very slow to be implemented, if at all. Business units and regions compete for dollars so there is no global cohesiveness.

    Advice to Management

    There are many great people in your organization going above and beyond to make the company profitable. The review process is often not used and those 'go-getters' aren't recognized. Bonuses quarterly across the board are great but hard working individuals should get increases more often.

    Re-invest in some of the older areas of the buildings while you build the new building. Some areas in C2 and C3 are very run down and dirty and need carpet replaced.

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

    Pros

    I've been working with Microchip Technology Inc. for more than 10 years now and I can say that the Microchip Technology Inc. is one of the best company to work with. Reasons are, culture, family oriented, colleagues are great and Microchip Technology Inc. gave importance to its employees.

    Cons

    I don't have anything to share about the 'CONS' of the company because for me, it is one of the best.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Microchip Technology Inc. is still standing because of your (management) strategies.

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

    Pros

    -Tends to be more of a relaxed environment
    -Lots of training opportunities
    -Learned experience translates very well to other companies in the industry
    -Mostly good, high quality people working here
    -Proven business model, always profitable
    -Solid market strategy
    -Profit sharing
    -Always growing and gaining market share
    -Frequent communication meetings/operational reviews where you can learn more about what each division is doing
    -Get to partake in more than just one part of the manufacturing process
    -Company very much sticks to its culture
    -Continuous improvement is truly valued

    Cons

    -Maybe a bit too conservative
    -Work can be mundane
    -Continuous improvement is so valued that it is somewhat out of control, everybody does everything their own way, this burns up engineering time
    -Communication between teams could be improved

    Advice to Management

    -Although Microchip loves to innovate, it would be exciting to see more radical innovation/risk taking

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

    Pros

    Work- life balance is very good
    Laid back environment. No one is stressing you or pushing your limits. "not sure if that's a pro or con"
    Stable profitable company with a proven business model.

    Cons

    Salaries are not competitive.
    No free tea or coffee, this will give you an idea of what to expect inside.
    If you are coming from an acquisition, forget all the benefits and pros, start building your resume and find another employer ASAP. They will never treat you fair as any new employee and if not laid off suddenly they will treat you badly.

    Not the best comp structure, but competitive.
