    I worked at Micron Technology full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    This company was my ideal environment for my skills. I did my part to keep the environment safe and innovative. Got along well with other employees and we worked well together. I was on that site since 1996 and earlier, IBM since 1986.

    Cons

    When the tech stocks go down, these types of companies panic and start closing positions that they didn't bother to review as to importance and cost to the company. I was only a statistic, no thanks, no serious consideration about the whys. Just boom, your gone. My position as an engineer/designer was critical for that site and still is. I just looked good on paper, as far as Corporate is concerned. That is not the way to treat loyal, good employees, then, keep other lesser employees.

    Advice to Management

    Review carefully before making rash decisions about who to push out the door. Your review process doesn't exist in a realistic fashion. From what I saw, first hand, many managers should have been pushed out long before critical employees that were experts at their jobs.

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

    Pros

    There are very good people working there, though they tend to either not stay long or become beat down and discouraged before long.

    The benefits and pay are about the best you will find in Boise.

    Cons

    The senior management team at micron needs to go. They don't understand that the world is not a DRAM, don't see that continuing to do business as usual and ignore the changing landscape will not work, and won't give new blood the chance to influence direction. They are smart enough to realize that they need to branch out, but keep failing by trying to force all projects into the paradigm they expect. When projects cannot flourish on a memory chip model, they invariably under fund them and expect unrealistic schedules. Other programs they force into memory design paradigms and then don't kill or rethink them even after years of failed revisions and missed market windows.
    Unless you are a member of the old boys club, you will never be promoted into the upper tiers of the engineering ladder, and will have very little chance of influencing the company to the better.

    Advice to Management

    Fire everyone at the director level and above (yes, the VPs especially) and allow the company to flourish.

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

    Pros

    Despite the bad taste in my mouth the compensation and benefits package were fairly generous.

    Cons

    Work-life balance was very often disrupted due to company first culture and mandatory overtime. Little-no support for non-leadership employees and considering the fact the company is quite top heavy this has a major impact.
