    I worked at Micron Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of work, good salary.

    Cons

    Management over reacts to below expectations on quarterly stock announcements. Frequent lay offs make workers reluctant to share information. Most areas in Boise R&D seem to be understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make knee jerk reactions to quarterly results. Have a long term perspective. Your employees are your most valuable asset, treat them as such.

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

    Pros

    -Great Benefits
    -Friendly co-workers
    -Flexible hours for salary workers
    -Most of the time the work is enjoyable
    -The City of Boise is a pretty cool place to live

    Cons

    -Only one building is actually pretty, the rest are very barebones office style (Though this is improving)
    -Occasionally work can become monotonous due to the cyclic nature of the industry
    -No buses to work and it's pretty much in the middle of nowhere so you have to drive

    Advice to Management

    I would say management is taking Micron in the correct direction. The industry has to start to appeal to millennial and gen z workers and can no longer rely on the older generation to power the workforce.

    With a little refinement, I think Micron will be an amazing company for all sorts of people.
