    Pros

    Great place to work, enjoyable atmosphere with many diverse cultures of people to interact with in the corporate environment which make its very interesting n fun ! Lots of learning to be obtained by many of the people who may join each team or projects that are always ongoing at the business of Micron :)

    Cons

    With such a huge organization Individuals can go unnoticed for what valued talents they might have to bring to the environment or depts at times .But overall still a very good place to work at , as put into perspective compared to many others as far as corporations go in regards to thier employees, including 1000's of internal Contractors being given an Opportunity to work hard along side of the employees of Micron, to which this company keeps growing at an incrediable rate but without a good balance of equal work forces at both ends ... ?

    Advice to Management

    Give equal praises & regonition to all groups of employees of this Global company to where it belongs to everyone on the work force,not just the regular Execs or administrators because theyre too many other that work behind the scenes that make a lot of what the company stands for day after day A team !

    Pros

    Large company with great benefits. Always looking for talented people to drive innovation in DRAM memory. When it comes to the product, they are very good at what they do. When it comes to the people, not so good, but in some cases not too bad. Profit sharing when the market was in upswing was VERY good.

    Cons

    Semiconductor manufacturing is a roller coaster ride based on market factors. Severe downturns lead to draconian cost-cutting measures (including layoffs) while upturns reminded team members how much they could accomplish with fewer resources (like during a downturn). Managers seem to have "pet projects" which is where funding went.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your people.

    I have been working at Micron Technology full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    * Most team members I've encountered have a solid work ethic & want to do well at their jobs -- at Micron, people aren't afraid to work hard toward common goals
    * Global company with opportunities to interact with people from many different cultures; Travel/assignments to other global sites, depending upon your function & area
    * Development has become more important at Micron, looks like the company is starting to implement more programs that support team members in growing their skills

    Cons

    Some departments/areas at the company haven't caught up with the more progressive ones, in terms of work/life balance, flex-time, etc. Perhaps there are still some leadership issues to iron out?

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to adopt new policies & programs at a fast pace -- people can adapt to change quickly, as long as you are able to demonstrate the potential value to them
