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

    Pros

    Company cares about its employees and is always looking for ways to make the company a better one to work for. Lots of communication from upper management. We have had some ups and downs over the past year but the company has been spiraling upwards with the economy which in turn has provided great opportunity for its employees.

    Cons

    Too many differences between how each shift is run and how each department is run, needs more consistence. Some of the team leads are not suited for their positions. Programs are phased out constantly with new programs coming in every year. The amount of extra accountability they are trying to push can get a little redundant. Could use some better company standardization, each fab has it's own way of doing things. Not much room for moving out of current position. There are few opportunities to move out of your current job role. If you are good at your job they will keep you there even if you apply for another position.

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

    Pros

    - Lots of diversity here: management and employees of many different races/ethnicities, lots of international collaboration (including travel)

    - Flexible schedules: Show up when you want and leave when you want, work from home

    - Solid benefits: Competitive salary, bonuses, raises, stock, stock options, decent paid time off, decent retirement plan options

    - Colleagues are generally very nice and supportive with varying degrees of knowledge, intelligence, and skills

    - Low-stress environment: Rooms with ping-pong, treadmill desks, yoga, darts, couch + TV, etc, depending on the building you work in. Break rooms with lots of snacks. Good cafeteria (definitely compared to a few years ago). Wellness program that awards points for steps and other activities which can be redeemed for gift cards or rewards

    - Great mobility for moving to other departments/areas

    - Lots of "extra-curricular" events/opportunities: women's groups, community activism, diversity initiatives, technical seminars, etc.

    - Company used to operate like it was in the stone ages, but it's fast-forwarding in the present with the new leadership; department structures are flattening and transforming into self-managing teams, employee recognition and incentives are improving quickly.

    - Money: The company is swimming in it. Assuming you're not in a department that has a very low budget, expect department BBQs with beer, training sessions that are catered, and having to spend insane amounts of time interviewing and recruiting because of how much we're hiring!

    - Not a "starter" company: employees of all different ages, very low turnover for the industry

    Cons

    - Inconsistency: Micron is a huge place with a major hierarchy of management. Different areas operate very differently as far as how they treat employees and advance their careers, how discerning their hiring is, etc. Certain departments/divisions are DEFINITELY better to work for than others. Be prepared to move around if you end up in the "wrong" place. Hopefully the new leadership will drive better alignment.

    - Poor management training: I've heard too many horror stories of leads and managers who never took Management 101 and frustrated their direct reports to no end. The company as of now does not mandate any sort of upward feedback, so unless you complain, things don't generally change. I'm hoping that the new leadership recognizes this and things improve. The good part is that there are competitive leaders in the company: it's just trial and error to find them.

    - Overly hierarchical structure: Lots of managers and lots of VPs. When things have to go up a large chain, visibility into decisions gets lost, actions aren't taken, and people get frustrated. In IT, they are pushing a flatter, Agile structure, but I fear for other departments in the company. A more progressive stance would be that all departments in the company push for self-managing structures.

    - Regressive mentality: Micron has been doing many things "the old way" for far too long. This leads to engineers using old methods or practices that are now extremely deprecated, and not enough people recognize it to drive change. Certain departments are making every effort to embrace best-in-class practices and methodologies, but others don't.

    Advice to Management

    Mandate a more progressive vision downwards so everyone embraces it and everyone is aligned. This will ensure that only the best talent is recruited and kept, and teams and departments are being managed effectively.
