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

    Pros

    Top-notch technical talent and a lot of behind-the-scenes innovation. The Crucial Memory division is successful in spite of the corporate connections.

    Cons

    The worst senior management team I have ever been involved with. Duplicitous behavior is the norm, and that trickles down through mid-management and the rest of the workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Step into this century folks. Theory X management might have worked on production lines during the Industrial Revolution, but has no place with knowledge workers in the 21st Century.

    Pros

    Provides most of the resources needed to do your job, great place for research and development. Also, very good benefits and occasional bonuses.

    This is the only place to work in Boise for hardware related IC research and development. Smaller town and the office is a few miles away from downtown.

    Pros

    You can work a lot of over-time, never mandatory. You can come to work from 5-6 as long as you stay your 12h night/day shift. Very good supervisors, people oriented.

    Cons

    Promotions are very hard. They look only numbers of jobs are completed. Learning is not encouraged. Pushing buttons-yes.

    Pros

    They hire smart people making the teams you work with really good. Lots of experience in the industry to build off of and they are willing to give people a chance. Great benefits especially the extras such as in town discounts and their gym and on site doctor's office. 401k matching is really nice

    Cons

    Very specialized knowledge, no real way to transfer out if you stay too long. World wide teams makes it difficult to time meetings and to get work life balance. on call was a nightmare. no real support while on call. Due to layoffs and outsourcing there was a significant age gap between senior developers and new hires. This should have resulted in good opportunities of advancement but i didn't see that.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of the least of your employees. Especially the janitors and security. Everyone feels it when these jobs aren't being taken care of.

    I have been working at Micron Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, benefits, bonus is good if market is good, education help ~ 7000$ for a grad degree.

    Cons

    Oh, where do I begin? Unstable market, horrible micromanaged management, very little scope outside the industry, very little room for innovation.
    Bosses are not very motivating as they are also being squeezed by the upper level.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people, encourage them to think outside the box rather than within the status quo.
