    I worked at Micron Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work environment is very stable, while there are layoffs from time to time they aren't that bad compared to a lot of places. The starting pay is good, and the vacation time is abundant. One of the big perks of working for a large company is that there are a lot of departments which means you can move around and work on different things and learn from a lot of people. You also generally get to work with cutting edge stuff.

    Cons

    Promotion and raises are slow at Micron, especially in Boise. And up until recently management didn't do a very good job of supporting people moving laterally either. Middle management is an issue in some departments where some managers have weaseled their way in and are doing more harm than good, sr. management seems either unaware or doesn't care about these issues.

    Advice to Management

    Put a bit more effort into career development, train managers in the systems. And take a look at what your middle management is doing, some of them are causing the company more harm than good and need to go.

    Pros

    Work with a great team..

    Cons

    You can save/make the company millions, and you just might get some star points...

    Advice to Management

    Give a bigger voice to the employees that drive fore results and take away the voice of the ones that distract and muddy the waters. Management needs to identify these key people from the MT level and all the way up to the top.

    I worked at Micron Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Back in the old days (1999-2002) Micron paid wages to enable a middle class to flourish. Bonuses bought that lifestyle to many (and not just firm employees-but Boise-through the multiplier effect) that sadly (along with the bonuses) no longer exist. Boise could have been a tech legend, but is now satisfied with being California's retirement home.

    Cons

    Secretive, insular culture. Hostile to new ideas. All the bad things mentioned in HP's 2005 White Paper. The company after 2007 is like a star in the sky- dying but not yet dead.

    Advice to Management

    Why bother ?? No one really listens.

    Pros

    If you get a good manager life can be good.

    Cons

    Marketing activities was more operations than actual marketing.

    Advice to Management

    Get an outside consultant to review operational planning methods to maximize efficiency as this is a skill that is not organically developed to the fullest extent. Many employees are reading 200 to 300 emails per day with only 1/3rd applying to them. There are better ways.
