    Great benefits overall.

    Some systems required to do job function typically aren't very good or organized.

    I have been working at Microchip Technology full-time

    Pros

    Basically Microchip is a friendly working environment, treats workers as human and respect. Employees are more happy working here in Microchip. Not like Texas Instruments, a hostile working environment and basically employee is like a "tool", used up and thrown away. So, who will you work for?

    Cons

    Fewer paid leave compares to previous job.
