      Pros

      relatively high pay in Idaho. Leadership cares about people.

      Cons

      Location really sucks if you don't enjoy living in Boise. Some talented people who came from outside of Boise won't stay lone due to location.

      Incompetent management

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Competitive Pay and benefits compared to other employers in Boise.

      Cons

      Management from the CEO down to mid-level managers lead with a “do as I say” approach. Mid-level mangers merely relay the criticizm they get from top-level mangemnt down to their employees and take no accountability. To succeed you must treat people with no respect and try to get others to do your work.

      Pros

      Welcoming friendly environment, and the provided housing for out of state interns was fantastic. Great learning opportunities provided weekly in ted talk style presentations by employees from different departments. Challenging projects and good team integration for interns.

      Cons

      I have nothing bad to say about my intern experience, I thoroughly enjoyed living in Boise and am grateful for the exposure to various engineering disciplines and the experience I gained.

      Still a factory setting and mentality at least in Boise. Work site is depressing. Got much more work done at home.

      Disappointing end....

      Feb 17, 2020 - Principal Product Engineer in Boise, ID
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great pay and benefits. For Boise the pay is very good. A bit too much of the compensation is dependent upon the bonus and stock segments of the compensation. If ALL you are looking for is money then its a good place to work.

      Cons

      Workload, HR policies, work environment, lack of internal job transfers, no work life balance. Workload/HR Policies. I can't speak for the new grads or junior engineers but as a senior/principal level engineer the work load and job demands are unsustainable. Management will put performance requirements on you so you have to work so many hours to keep up that you have no afterwork life. Management pushes you hard by using the whip of the "stacked ranking" system. They say they don't have quotas but it is obvious they do. And when caught and sued they backed off a bit. But I suspect after the dust settles on the lawsuit over the ranking quotas they will go back to it with a vengeance. Work environment. With the ranking performance system I was beginning to see the fruits of that in that employees starting to cut corners, backstab other employees, and management playing employees against each other. This makes for a miserable existence. You are constantly looking over your shoulder and trying to give the illusion that you are happy and collaborating. If you're and older employee or a long time Boise employee watch out. They are working to exterminate you. Management sends a clear message that we only want young workers. The whole Diversity and Inclusion thing does not include older more experienced workers. Just a diverse new "top tier" new grad worker population. There are no careers at Micron. Just jobs. Lots of them.. if you are a young new grad. As a senior engineer there are very few opportunities for you to move around. It seems very difficult to move around because they only want to hire new grads thus shutting out seasoned and experienced senior level engineers from moving in a direction they would like their career to go. So you have to leave. It pains me to say these things. Micron had been good to me and my career for many many years. It was only around 2017/2018 that it took a turn for the worst. It used to feel like family but not anymore. You are just a piece of tooling that when you show the first signs of wear or break down they throw you away. Heaven forbid you get ill and can't keep up.
