    I have been working at Micron Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has good ethics and is managed well for the most part. The benefits (health, dental, and vision) are great. Their time off program is good.

    Cons

    They don't pay competitively and they work with too low of head count. This makes the workload pretty difficult. The pay is okay, but other places pay much better with better financial advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Give raises to people who carry the company. Don't wait till a specified time. Do it on the spot. If you stop paying competitively, all the workers will leave and the workload will get too great on a skeleton crew. Also, hire more workers. We can work much more proactively with many more improvements to efficiency, quality, and productivity if we had more time.

    I worked at Micron Technology full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Challenging projects, pretty solid process, decent technology

    Cons

    Absolutely the worst culture. The work environment is atrocious. Employees are never given any consideration and are treated with little to no respect. THEY DO NOT GIVE RAISES. The only way to get a pay increase is to get promoted. Promotions are few and far between. There is no training provided. Most department decisions are based on gut instict and knee jerk reactions. Managers offer no support. While there are a few good managers there are not enough to make a difference. No opportunites for career growth. This a company that repremands people for being "too positive" and being "too good" at their job. You may be encouraged to perform below your capabilities to avoid hurting any of your coworkers feelings.

    Advice to Management

    Know what lower level management is doing. Treat your employees with more respect. Give raises.

    I have been working at Micron Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Location in Manassas OK
    - Some of the employees are good to work with
    - Close to big city like D.C.
    - Good medical insurance

    Cons

    - Company has no interest in Micron Virginia site
    - Most hardworking and talented people have left in 2017
    - Very demotivating management who treats engineers like secretaries for making presentations and useless updates
    - Company has Blue Collar Mentality where you are treated like a laborer/worker who won't get any jobs outside Micron especially the workers on H1Bs.
    - Company projects itself as Fortune 500 company but in reality works like a textile sweatshop in Asia.
    - Since last year most of the talent has either left Micron or Moved to Asia sites within Micron
    - Only way to get more money is through promotions and even that is not up to the mark with competitors in Northern Virginia nor with Other semiconductor firms in USA
    - There is Almost NO annual salary raise to account for INFLATION and cost of living increase with economy. So basically they give you market adjustment or increment like once in 3 years. That is also like a demeaning low percentage.
    - If you interview with them and don't negotiate a good starting salary then you are basically working on the same salary for next 3-4 years.
    - If I could go back in time as a Graduate, I would not work for them ever.
    - Work-life balance is horrible, managers want you to stay beyond your work hours as it is necessary "to show you are committed to company." Only company I have seen in this age and time where salaried employees are monitored like high school kids
    - Micromanagement is so high that some employees need to take medicines for tension and anxiety due to work related stress (not exaggerating)
    - The one and only paid cafeteria onsite is so horrible that most employees go out to eat. Food is not even fit for human consumption.

    Advice to Management

    - My only hope is new CEO and I really hope he does something about our salaries at least a respectable market adjustment and a fair promotion system.
    - Micromanagement never made a company or site successful
    - We need respect and good work life balance

    I have been working at Micron Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Steady income.
    Retirement savings plans, and thankfully health and life insurance.
    Made several friends for life.
    Found success in team building, that was very rewarding

    Cons

    A legacy parts producer with a limited shelf life that no longer budgets for employee appreciation.
    The company remains nearly 85% male and this sexism is furthered by promoting men to lower management positions from strongly male dominated cultures who may not even be aware they tend to promote men before women.
    Micron has been working to reduce redundancy and non value tasks in Fab positions, but rarely rises to middle management jobs.
    Currently workers at the bottom of the production chain have picked up the off load of jobs from both the process and the tool sides. MT's are now very few with generally double the workload they started with, but very very minimal increase in pay. No one knows how much work came actually correctly completed in one 12 hour shift. It seems like a strange strategy for cost cutting. Employee headcount goes down to bare bones causing their workload to increase even more, which leads to greater risk to the product and lower tool efficiency. Does eliminating low end low paying jobs save enough money to offset scrapped wafers and loss of tool production time? Even when you consider these employees are doing double duty for essentially the same pay rate? Wouldn't retaining low cost labor instead provide an opportunity for a better distribution of work which could easily translate to less human scrap and less lost production time for tool malfunctions?
    Last, it doesn't matter how hard you work, how much you know, how well you document your development, if you ask for additional responsibilities or for development opportunities to benefit your performance. There is just one person, one person who can either help you get where you really want to go or make your life so miserable you can't even let it go once you've left for the day. They can count on your participation, use you to any extent they need, but toss you off the bus solely because they like someone better, and I've seen people go just because a manager has to chop heads, and he personally prefers someone else. How in 2017 can an international company hope to succeed when it doesn't even realize that from the top down, they promote managers who chooses employees not for their value to the company, but in a personality contest.

    Advice to Management

    Always remember the good dog/bad dog theorem. Your bad dog will never pick up good habits from the good dog. But if you aren't diligent, your good dog will go right down the tubes. Micron has new leadership at the top as well as on site. This is where the good dogs can stand up and root out the bad dogs, take Micron back from the bad practices that have been an embarrassment to your name.
