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

    Pros

    There is a fairly good culture for continual improvement. Leadership is usually looking for new ideas to improve and receptive to feedback. The company cares about their people. Most promotions are from within.

    Cons

    Entry level positions are often on night shift. It can take a few years to earn seniority for the schedule of your choice.

    Advice to Management

    Keep cutting the red tape.

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

    Pros

    Best place for my skills

    Cons

    Wrong personnel put into management positions. Position was terminated because it looked good on paper for cutting purposes to corporate, not for need purposes. It left a big hole where, now, contracts are paid out with big money to provide the same services that I provided, which fall short. Now, no longer personalized to Micron's needs. That is a scam and a huge lie when Micron is claiming down-sizing. It now takes two companies to do my job. I had done an incredible amount of good for MTV, but, head cutters are so much smarter that they shot themselves in the foot. It is like bringing the shuttle down (remember Christie McAuliffe). That was a management decision.

    Advice to Management

    Always research who is working under you. Don't just assume that when you hired them by someone else's advice. Study their history carefully. Don't do generalized reviews on their performances. Every review needs a peer to weigh in on their performance, not just mangers making sweeping statements like "everybody gets a 2 this time and only the very elite will barely get a 3 and forget a 4, nobody deserves a 4". This is how the good employees at MTV have been scammed in the last 12 years. Don't send Lead engineers to do reviews. They are not trained.

    Pros

    The manager is friendly and on top of things. Co-workers are always willing to help and are also friendly. Good mobility within the company itself. Suited for constant personal growth.

    Cons

    12 hour shifts may be bad for some. I find it nice to have days devoted to work and have 3 to 4 days a week to relax.

    Pros

    Good nenefits. It was a really great experience. Friendly teams, great onboarding, coaching. I would recommend this company. Great experience.

    Pros

    Near to Washington, DC and other northern virginia suburbs -

    fab has shift schedule which is fixed - so you are on day or nights- you are stuck there - the promotions are difficult - there is too much favoritism - nepotism - good old boys club

    Advice to Management

    promote or higher folks who are capable - not who you know -

    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.
