- 1.0Mar 9, 2015Anonymous EmployeeFormer Employee, less than 1 yearMilpitas, CA
- Decent pay but still lagging behind in comparison to other Bay Area companies - The company has a decent annual bonus structure which is a little extra cash in your pocket in the middle of the year. Be sure to read the program guidelines carefully as this may not be too much money when split within the year and after paying taxes. - If you like being on the road and travelling then this might be a good option. Micron believes in face time and promotes a lot of travel.
Micron offers zero work life balance. This company will take everything out of you and give you very little to nothing in return. Early mornings, working through lunches, late nights and constant travelling are the culture of Micron. Expect to be face time a lot. Micron does not believe in Work from Home and Telecommuting. All the control sits at Corporate in Boise, Idaho and there is little empowerment and decision making capabilities at other remote sites. There is no employee appreciation and recognition. It's all based on who likes you and how well you play the politics. Micron rewards the talkers and not the doers. Creative ideas and people who question the status quo are not welcome here. You will not last too long if you plan to innovate and question the status quo. Constantly walking on egg shells to speak up and give ideas. This is the place for you if you wish to be a follower, follow others and do not want to reinvent and innovate. Decent salaries but still lagging behind in comparison to other Bay Area companies and competitors. Stock awards are not worth much either. For the amount of work and zero work life balance it is not worth it. There is a lack of culture at Micron and too many silo's. There are too many levels and redundancy in roles and responsibilities. Growth and promotion opportunities mainly exist in Boise, Idaho. Growth comes very slow at Micron and mainly comes to those who play the game and have been at Micron, Idaho for a long time. Very heavy meeting intensive culture, you may find yourself in meetings all day and getting very little done. Even basic processes are not set up and you will find yourself scrambling and constantly calling folks for help and just to get by on a daily basis. Be prepared to spend tons of time on just figuring out the basics. For remote sites outside of Idaho there is very little to no training and development opportunities available. Micron invests very little to none in Culture, Engagement, Morale, Rewards and Work life Balance. They do not care about how they treat their employees and operate in a box. Micron does not live and breathe Creativity. Outside of Idaho Micron does not care about New College Grads and Intern opportunities. They operate in a box that only focuses on Boise, Idaho. Unless you are looking to or are motivated to move to Idaho this might not be the most impressive work environment that will offer you great skills, learning or growth opportunities.8

One of the better paying employers in semiconductor industry.
Internal auditors may ‘catch’ you on a daily basis and ‘punishment’ like getting a poor year assessment with no salary increments are common. Bell curved assessment with lower spectrum is laid off.2
- 1.0Feb 25, 2019Senior EngineerFormer Employee, more than 10 yearsManassas, VA
Micron Manassas used to be a good company and so the one star is meant for the last 2 years or so. I stayed there from 2005-2018, working on various roles from shift engineering, process, integration, quality with some reassignments at Boise, ID and Singapore ... my good experiences are summarized as follows: - good location for single individuals or young families. Manassas in general have the worst schools and crime in the area but the adjacent 'Linton Hall' and Fairfax districts have some of the best schools. - Proximity to Washington DC (less than an hour's drive by car). Its like living close to Paris or Rome if you were to ask me. Close to Shenandoah State Park (again, less than an hour's drive). Northern VA is good if you are into Civil War history. Drive up and down and you'll be in Pennsylvania (Amish, Gettsyburg), Maryland (National Aquarium, NASA), North Carolina (Duke Univ, beaches)... Manhattan/NYC is 6 hours' drive up north. - peers are generally nice, helpful and work really hard. - they send you to vendor training and will pay for your schooling as long as it fits your job role. - they support green card applications for foreign workers. - generous time off hours accumulation but whether or not they will approve your leave is another question. -good 401k match at 6%. Need 4 yrs to vest. - good training program like process classes, statistics. mentoring culture is terrible and likely non-existent in most groups.
- salary is low if you would factor in the cost of living in the area. Northern VA is one of the most expensive in the US. $140,000/yr wont get you even a townhouse, which starts at $400,000. HOA's are another $250/mo. Of course there are cheaper options but pretty much you wont like it (1950's old brick houses in unsafe neighborhoods). - management will tell everything to motivate you but deliver way short after you did your part of the bargain. they say do this and that and we'll get you promoted ... after exceeding the requirements and after a few months later you are still engineer 1. Boss will say that you are 'almost there' except for 1-2 things you need to improve on ... then you get a fresh to do list and the cycle continues. There's an unwritten expectation of working 55 hours or so minimum if you want to be 'good in their eyes'. - promotion is not based on your performance alone. it is also based on how well you get the senior managers to like you. salesmanship and impression management will get you further than tangible accomplishment. quiet type engineers are at a disadvantage. - work-life balance does not exist unless you work on 3-4 day shift. it is pretty common for non-shift people to work 55-60 hours a week. If you have a meeting at 7-8pm, you still need to show up at 7:45 am the following day. You are required to be contactable even in the middle of the night, and you are expected to work at home thru remote PC connection - and this is not counted as 'work hours'. -yearly evaluations are based on how good you are compared to your peers ... you will be ranked against others. this made not a few people become selfish of how they do their work so as to be ranked better than others. if you are new, good luck figuring the ropes out. - cyclical layoffs. I survived 3-4 layoffs so far and this means more work for the remaining workforce. Everybody is overworked, resulting in consistent attrition of workers. Most of who stayed are either foreign workers waiting for their permanent residency, older 50+ workers, or rank and file operators and technicians. - most first level managers are chinese or indian so chances are youll have an asian boss (again due to permanent residency issue, they have no choice but to stay). this would translate into a more asian style 'sweatshop' approach to management than the more liberal 'consensus based' american style we love. favoritism also play well at times in getting hot jobs i.e. expat assignments. - cafeteria food is terrible, not to mention the cubes are 1980's style light blue cloth with light brown steel frame and light gray cabinets. computers are slow but they change it every 6 years. i went to some offsite training before and i was handed over an old heavy laptop and corded mouse for use. i volunteered to use mine instead and just accessed my work PC remotely. - Parking is insufficient. Need to come early to secure a good spot. - No gym. Bottomline: workers are not well taken cared of based on their treatment and their general workplace. A lot have already left and moved on.10
- 2.0Jul 30, 2016Process EngineerFormer Employee, more than 3 yearsSingapore
Competitive salary and overtime pay are given at SG location which many employees (especially engineers) routinely abuse the system by staying back to do non-work related issues.
Poor company outlook with retrenchment ongoing to save cost. Multiple instances of pay freeze in the last few years. Typical American culture to fire when times are bad and rehire when times are good. Local SG culture is dominated by management who has know each other for many years and promotions are determined by "who's is in the inner circle". Sometime new hires are "earmarked" without them doing anything and as long as they don't do anything wrong, they are on the express track.5

Food is cheap, commodity price in TW is low, health care is included
Salary is very low compared to other company like TSMC or other semiconductor companies around the world
- 5.0Oct 21, 2022Reliability EngineerCurrent Employee, more than 3 yearsBatu Kawan
Best salary in penang x2 bonus + profit sharing and RSU stocks for high performance. Mid year salary adjustment based on market rate.
Due to startup many projects will be required to work from scratch.
- 2.0Apr 6, 2014Senior DesignerCurrent Employee, more than 10 yearsVimercate
Expertized and talented colleagues. Handsome working environment. Good relationship with low/middle hierarchy managers. Top management very skilled on getting money from incorporated companies, good abilty in surviving and be profitable in the mercyless market of memories.
Unexplained, unbelievable, shocking etc... company behaviour of Micron Semiconductors Italy, due to the recent 40% workforce sack and the precedent contiuous transfer of strategical job out of Italy. This is due to all but italians job quality and results or high salary level.
- 4.0Oct 13, 2021Senior Manufacturing TechCurrent Employee, more than 5 yearsBoise, ID
They have competitive salaries and opportunities to move up within the company even without having a degree.
They cater their policies and agenda to the liberal propaganda. They recently announced that they would fire anyone who wasn't vaccinated and got weekly covid tests. They care more about people's feelings than they do about protecting our constitutional rights.6
- 5.0May 14, 2023Principal EngineerCurrent Employee, more than 1 yearBoise, ID
No pressure from managers or few things that scatters my focus, so one can concentrate on one's task including literature search and study.
The salary level does not keep up with the rapidly rising living expense of Boise area.
- 1.0Aug 8, 2017Process EngineerCurrent Employee, more than 5 yearsManassas, VA
- Location in Manassas OK - Some of the employees are good to work with - Close to big city like D.C. - Good medical insurance
- Company has no interest in Micron Virginia site - Most hardworking and talented people have left in 2017 - Very demotivating management who treats engineers like secretaries for making presentations and useless updates - Company has Blue Collar Mentality where you are treated like a laborer/worker who won't get any jobs outside Micron especially the workers on H1Bs. - Company projects itself as Fortune 500 company but in reality works like a textile sweatshop in Asia. - Since last year most of the talent has either left Micron or Moved to Asia sites within Micron - Only way to get more money is through promotions and even that is not up to the mark with competitors in Northern Virginia nor with Other semiconductor firms in USA - There is Almost NO annual salary raise to account for INFLATION and cost of living increase with economy. So basically they give you market adjustment or increment like once in 3 years. That is also like a demeaning low percentage. - If you interview with them and don't negotiate a good starting salary then you are basically working on the same salary for next 3-4 years. - If I could go back in time as a Graduate, I would not work for them ever. - Work-life balance is horrible, managers want you to stay beyond your work hours as it is necessary 'to show you are committed to company.' Only company I have seen in this age and time where salaried employees are monitored like high school kids - Micromanagement is so high that some employees need to take medicines for tension and anxiety due to work related stress (not exaggerating) - The one and only paid cafeteria onsite is so horrible that most employees go out to eat. Food is not even fit for human consumption.8
