    Pros

    Microchip culture. People are friendly and helpful. You can change jobs inside the organization if you want a change instead of leaving the company. Microchip has grown a lot due to acquisitions.

    Cons

    Technical carrier path is not as good as management carrier path.

    Cons

    Fab5
    You have to know people to move up in the company. In another words it’s who know not what you know.apply for position and get no response. If you have experience they don’t value that. They only value who you know.They don’t value their employees. All they care about is their numbers, they want you to be positive but management is poor when talking to people they don’t talk professional to you they just treat you like your dirt. Job is very highly stressful. They say we need to be in standard of microchip but old management from the old company has not changed their ways.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be better at being professional

    Pros

    Understanding management/ leaders.
    Simple work.
    Solid schedule.
    Decent pay.
    Health benefits.

    Cons

    POOR COMMUNICATION
    Poor 'cross-training' guidance
    Non-legitimate terminations.

    Advice to Management

    SUPERVISORS SHOULD COMMUNICATE WITH EMPLOYEES. ESPECIALLY TO ENSURE JOB IS BEING DONE SAFELY AND CORRECTLY. As a whole I strongly recommend company gives up on their "no lay-off policy" as it appears to be leading to unfair and non-legitimate terminations during RTO in fab5, Colorado Springs.

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

    Pros

    Microchip offers a lot to employees. 401k matching, benefits, stock options, quarterly bonuses, gym onsite, café onsite, and more. Some come into the entry level role planning to stay there while others look to advance. Advancing is easy for those that show their desire to move up and ability to do their job and show up to work.

    You get out of this job what you put into in. They promoted 92 employees from our entry level position last year and have already promoted 30 this year.

    Cons

    This industry is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working hard to make this site the best it can be!

    I worked at Microchip Technology full-time

    Pros

    Pay was okay. Shift work.

    Cons

    Place is in need of repair. They say they care about the employees but they do not. Management had a gift for delivering "hand grenades" in the form of policy for the supervisors to hand out. Then when things exploded, the supervisors had to bear the brunt of trying to keep all things together. HR is not your friend. They do not do any investigation. If two or more people will collude against you, HR will not do any detailed investigation or get your side of the story. They will look to hang you though. In response to how are things going it is best to only say something nice. If you say something negative it will show up on your review. No OT compensation to exempts and you WILL put in extra hours at your expense. Shift work. You put in 84 hours minimum every two weeks. You receive 80 hours of pay. Over 10 years they owe you 1040 extra hours of pay you will never see. This does not include coming in early and leaving late after passdowns.

    Advice to Management

    Pack sand.
