    Pros

    Company values its employees and guiding values are truly practised. Senior management is easily accessible and environment is open for innovation, continuous improvement and progress towards becoming a market leader. Lots of new opportunities as the company grows both organincally and through acquisition.

    Cons

    None really to note here since I have had a truly wonderful experience at this company. Most employees give it over 100% of their time and if that is a problem then this may not be the place for you.

    Pros

    Great coworkers with industry experience in a variety of fields who you can learn from everyday. Management feels very natural with very little oversight on projects and help you develop your skills with and for the company.

    Cons

    None so far, I am loving it here.

    Advice to Management

    Move forward with more innovative hardware and software technology solutions. Get rid of legacy equipment and programs that have slowly become the backbone of the entire corporation, requiring costly maintenance and upgrades on a constant basis.

    Pros

    Best place to learn and grow
    Ample opportunities to experiment
    Colleagues around are very helpful
    Very Enriching experience
    Very good work life balance

    Cons

    I personally have not seen issues or concerns at Microchip. After working for Microchip Technology for more than seven years, I have seen some of the highs and lows of the Semiconductor Industry in general and the Top Management here knows how to anticipate change and they are always ready to take care when things around are changing such that the outside Semiconductor Market does not really create much of an impact to our employees.

    Advice to Management

    None
