    I have been working at Micron Technology as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent management team, low gossip rate, people attempt to deliver and are professional about it

    Cons

    Big company - it's tough. There are some functional roles where their goals and what they are required to do is orthogonal to the needs of the divisions.
    Travel policies are contradictory to strategic goals. Closing business deals can be challenging due to phases it must go thru and requirements it must meet. Very challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Try to unwrap the convoluted structures so it's easier for people to work together to meet goals set for them. Try to make the goals reasonable and strategic so that what people are doing matters. Make sure the strategies and goals align, top to bottom.

    Pros

    New CEO who came from competing company. He promises to make changes for the good so this is hopeful.

    Cons

    They discontinued their Lexar division. There is concern that their Crucial division will be next but nobody knows for sure.

    Advice to Management

    Please make the company more competitive in benefits as compared to other companies in Silicon Valley. If you want the best engineers then you need to see what Google and Yahoo and FB are doing to get this great talent. At a miniumum, they need to provide a cafeteria in Milpitas. This is standard at the good companies in this valley. Great people don't want to come to a company that can't even provide a cafeteria to their employees.
