    I have been working at Micron Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The manager is friendly and on top of things. Co-workers are always willing to help and are also friendly. Good mobility within the company itself. Suited for constant personal growth.

    Cons

    12 hour shifts may be bad for some. I find it nice to have days devoted to work and have 3 to 4 days a week to relax.

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

    Pros

    This company was my ideal environment for my skills. I did my part to keep the environment safe and innovative. Got along well with other employees and we worked well together. I was on that site since 1996 and earlier, IBM since 1986.

    Cons

    When the tech stocks go down, these types of companies panic and start closing positions that they didn't bother to review as to importance and cost to the company. I was only a statistic, no thanks, no serious consideration about the whys. Just boom, your gone. My position as an engineer/designer was critical for that site and still is. I just looked good on paper, as far as Corporate is concerned. That is not the way to treat loyal, good employees, then, keep other lesser employees.

    Advice to Management

    Review carefully before making rash decisions about who to push out the door. Your review process doesn't exist in a realistic fashion. From what I saw, first hand, many managers should have been pushed out long before critical employees that were experts at their jobs.

    Pros

    Good place to learn new skills and to work in corporate environment with large teams.Is some room to advance in carrier. They pay for education.

    Cons

    Salaries are under media and is very hard to get a rise, people prefer to leave the company to get a change in this direction. Not all the time the education and competencies are the most important criteria to advance in carrier. Very thrifty with money for new projects. Tons of training which you no needed.

    Advice to Management

    Not everybody wants to become manager, give up to bring reality in yours theoretical territory.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, benefits, bonus is good if market is good, education help ~ 7000$ for a grad degree.

    Cons

    Oh, where do I begin? Unstable market, horrible micromanaged management, very little scope outside the industry, very little room for innovation.
    Bosses are not very motivating as they are also being squeezed by the upper level.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people, encourage them to think outside the box rather than within the status quo.
