      No opinion of CEO

      I have been working at Micron Technology full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Good opportunities for strong problem solvers. Easy to make friends with coworkers. Work is very interesting on an RND team - my dream job.

      Cons

      Team sizes are decreasing every year. Responsibilities are increasing. Product life cycle goals were just recently crunched in half - accelerating all work. Very few “team leads” are capable of leading a team - most people in the lead positions are voluntold. Heavily skilled and passionate employees are being pushed out the door due to the most recent “bell curve performance ratings”. Morale is very low right now.

      Advice to Management

      Offering a severance package to people who got 2s on the performance review of 2018 was absurd. It was one thing to implement a reduced profit sharing %, but pushing hundreds of honest, dedicated, and skilled employees out the door for no reason went way to far. Do not repeat this in 2019 or you will likely lose the rest of your knowledgeable workers in DRAM Product Engineering: whom are already slim-pickings as is.

      I have been working at Micron Technology full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Great bonus on good years, good benefits like 401k match and stock purchase discount, work hours can be flexible if you ask, high pay for the area (since Idaho wages are low), involvement in high tech products and different cultures, managers are decent, investing in the future with construction projects and community donations.

      Cons

      Low pay increase year to year, slow gradual decline in employee benefits (loss of flexibility in vacation hours), "rank and yank" performance program, yearly layoffs that lead to low morale, late work hours required, hard to accomplish work with bureaucracy and lots of meetings and work reviews, hard to change jobs internally, employees expected to take on additional responsibilities when layoffs occur making them feel...

      Advice to Management

      Saying you care about employees and then laying them off, reducing severance, and reducing vacation flexibility makes you look like a hypocrite.
