    Process Engineering Experience

    Pros

    Micron has been a pretty stable company to work for. I worked for Micron and a joint venture held by micron for over 10 years. I've only been through 1 round of layoffs in that time and it was pretty safe for average to high level performers. Also Micron's internal training processes are extremely well done. This company doesn't ask people to do things they're not trained on doing.

    Cons

    Micron is pretty terrible with both bonus and pay increases. As a high level performer(I was consistently told I was a high performer in annual reviews not just me saying as much), I routinely got 1.5-2.5% annual raises. I've only received 4-5% annual raises twice in my 10 year time at Micron. Furthermore, they've been getting far more politically active than the have in the past. This can be pretty frustrating if you're not a fan of the company's viewpoints. Lastly, Micron's internal promotion has a very strong good ole boy feel to it. They've played lipservice to trying to make this an unbiased process but it still ends up being more of a who you know thing not a performance based evaluation for internal promotions

    Sweatshop mentality, TOXIC WORK CULTURE

    Nov 21, 2021 - Process Integration Engineer in Manassas, VA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    CEOs Vision, Health Insurance, Micron stock

    Cons

    - Micromanagement to such a high level that feel like a sweatshop. No trust in Sr. Engineers or Staff Engineers. Need 3 managerial approvals to get one experiment done. I used to make 4 updates a week and attend minimum 3-4 meetings a day just to update - This has become a sweatshop to just churn out reports, logs, fixing machines, cycle time. Team building is so poor that manager want you to miss those events and make reports or updates. - Highest turnover in last 12 years. People are leaving so fast that they couldn’t even have a stable name for a role, Dry Etch, PhotoLitho and PIE are worst areas with lowest staffing. Nearly 50% of Dry etch engineers quit. I saw technicians and engineers crying and walking out on job. You need approval from Sr. Manager to even run a test wafer experiment. So many checklists and updates. - No way to get promoted unless you make checklists, power points and create more work for everyone. Process Integration department has lost all innovation and is just pushing papers now. Missed goals on all fronts. Same director and sr . managers for last 10 years - Worst roles to avoid floor technicians, process integration engineers, process owners, tool owners. You will not get promoted. Even if you get promoted and get 10% you still won’t be able to live anywhere nearby because they pay you so low to start. - Pay structure: people got 1-2% market adjustment during 2020, and 2021. Bonus is based on bell curve of employees. It’s unfair for senior people. A ton of technicians drive Ubers or work at home dept to afford housing in Northern Virginia - Zero hybrid work mentality as this is a sweatshop. People forced to come to work in Covid due to business needs - They want you to leave if you are E3 or above so they can hire more new college graduates on H1Bs, who get exploited as they can’t leave so fast. Company keeps a ton of employees on H1B offering them low salaries and in doing so driving overall cost of a position lower.
