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

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits. Good pay for the area but not compared to global competitors.

    Cons

    Not a fun place to work. You are treated like a robot. Constant threat of layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Remove mid level good old boys managers and get new ones who are open to new ideas. Also stop with the constant threat of layoffs. Its making employees stressed out and want to leave to other companies who don't constantly threaten their employees.

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

    Pros

    Good people
    Good pay at higher levels
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Strictly for the Manassas, VA (legacy) site
    Weak management, leaders are not built here
    Commitment to ever increasing goals to maintain the luster while production and maintenance are stretched to the limits despite the legacy products bringing in a very nice premium
    Site and department goals change at least quarterly, sometime during the quarter
    Much of the 2nd level and higher management are so far removed from the floor operations, and have never worked on the floor, that they have only the most basic ideas of what really goes on.
    Not much room for advancement; IF you can advance as a technician, it's a near impossibility to make it to a 1st shift position as turnover is light and 'business needs' will probably dictate that someone from another area fill the spot.
    Manassas site has a shelf life since new products will never be introduced due to cost of retooling

    Advice to Management

    Bring some manufacturing back to the US. Rather than continue to expand the R&D in Boise, build another fab on the ALREADY POURED foundation in Manassas.
