Production Specialist (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZJanuary 18, 2018
On the job they teach you one machine at a time to see how the process works and then when confident they move onto the next machine that they teach you. At the same time you are inputting the information onto the system to make sure everything is running properly.

Principal Design Engineer (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXDecember 7, 2017
An excellent education system which is good for new college glads so that they can build up their carrier efficiently without hassle. For experienced engineers, it is relaxed place and you would feel secured. Since they, in general, do not lay off their employees but ask king you a voluntary pay reduction in the down turn.
Pros
Good Job Work / Life Balance
Cons
Relatively low salary

Principal Application Engineer (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CANovember 13, 2017
The culture at Microchip establishes great work balance but will keep things from moving too quickly. This is not a bad thing just something to be aware of. Management is great and as long as the individual contributors are keeping up with their responsibilities.
Pros
Great Work/Life Balance
Cons
sometimes too slow moving.

Finance (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZOctober 27, 2017
They started acquiring companies and not listening to current employees. They just tack on to your workload and expect you to work overtime to keep up. Managers and supervisors don't acknowledge your hard work and instead reprimand you when you make mistakes or can't keep up especially when you ask for help. I was miserable there and don't recommend working here unless you want to be stressed out and worried about your job all the time.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Micromanaging and no appreciation

Training Insructor (Current Employee) –  Gresham, OROctober 16, 2017
Microchip is a stable company to work for. There is some advancement available even if you choose not to take advantage of tuition reimbursement. If you are working as a Production Specialist it is your typical fast paced, numbers driven Production job.

Operator (Former Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COOctober 4, 2017
I loved working there it was fast paced and stressful at times but there was plenty of fun to the people were great I miss them. Management depends on which shift you work on 4 different managers and most you wont see. supervisors are always looking to brighten peoples moods and always willing to lend a hand when needed.
Pros
the days off
Cons
carpet walkers telling you what to do

Slower paced work but interesting and usually stays busy all during shift. Long hours can be hard but the payoff is having long weekends to enjoy.
Production Specialist (Former Employee) –  Gresham, ORSeptember 18, 2017
It's an easy and fun job, but wearing a bunny suit inside the fab can get hot and uncomfortable at times. Most work requires standing all during the shift, but some positions allow sitting and working at some of the fab tools.
Pros
Coffee and tea provided in break room, work-out room including weights, basketball court
Cons
long hours, wearing a bunny suit all day.

Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Gresham, ORSeptember 17, 2017
Low wages non competitive, other benefits ok. Can be stressful depending on your department high turn over rate. Management unfair, favoritism towards employees. Never close regardless of inclement weather conditions.

Sr. Product Engineer (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXSeptember 3, 2017
Room for advancement reserved for center of MC universe. Work life balance was not as good as needed. Management communication was good but my particular manager demands were over the top and has driven several good engineers away and with zero-defect expectations.

poor pay, co-workers left to make more as servers
