Document Control Specialist (Current Employee) –  Milpitas, CAJune 26, 2017
Micron is a great place to work. Great work environment but little room for career growth. It's a great job if you have tenure, meaning in the same position forever.

Hectic for most people.

You will become a zombe over time!
Electronics Technician (Current Employee) –  Boise, IDJune 20, 2017
Nothing has been the same since Steve has been gone and the management is now horrible with the attitude that you are lucky to have a job and they have no clue about what is going on in the manufacturing areas.

96% of the production occurs in Asia, overseas training occurs during the night so you are expected to work your normal day hours and then be on call all night long. My typical work day is 6:00am till 6:00pm and then once you are home remote logging in until midnight or later at locations all over the world. Scheduled vacation time is not really vacation at all as you are asked to still login from wherever you are and keep machines running.

Expect long nights, no life, unrealistic deadlines, and all the managers taking credit for your hard work and long hours.

If you do something good then management is always there to take the credit for it. Be prepared for them to ask you to do things unethical and if something negative comes out of it they will play as they know nothing about it.

Micron used to be the best place in the world to work. Now it has gotten so big that you are now a number. Stock options are gone, bonuses are very small, and everyone has a very negative outlook about everything now days.

There are some good departments at Micron to work for, so if you are going to apply for a job at this company do your homework and find the good departments or else do not waste your time here. There is a reason Micron cannot recruit the top Engineers out of school as they used to 10~ ago...
Pros
Pay, benefits, and gym on campus. Great Operators, Technicians and Engineers.
Cons

Micron's Culture
Senior Manufacturing Technician - R&D (Current Employee) –  Boise, IDJune 16, 2017
Micron is a good place to work, with lots of good benefits. The pay for MTs and operators is low. If you are an engineer or technician, your pay is better and may be a better place to work. The culture here is what bothers me the most. People can be demoted for not being liked or people can be promoted for just knowing someone. You are not judge by your work here only who you know. There are people in positions that they should not be in or may not be educated for. I do like the people I work with but I don't come to work to have fun, I come to work to make money and I need to make more soon.
Pros
Good people, Great benefits, & time off
Cons
Managers and executives who make bad hiring decisions.

Manager - Advanced Module Process Integration (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDMay 20, 2017
Micron is a strong company. As with any job, the satisfaction depends largely on the manager. Most are good at Micron. If new to the semiconductor field, Micron is the place to be and the Boise area is outstanding.

MTV site is starting to decline
Fab Equipment Technician 3 (Senior Tech) (Current Employee) –  Manassas, VAMay 19, 2017
Micron was a great company to work for. They have been focusing so much on improving that they have been neglecting their workforce. They have cut pay and the constant threat of lay offs loom. The leadership has changed so much and they have no real leadership skills. MTV needs a revamp in order to maintain their workers. They have increased the workload while decreasing the amount of workers. These workers with less pay are now expected to perform the task that it use to take 3 times they amount of workers. Micron as a whole is a good company but the Manassas site is having issues.

Used to be a great company
Design Engineer (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDMay 15, 2017
There used to be a singular mission and a focus. Now the only thing they focus on is profits....which BTW, no longer flow down to the lower levels. It has become a very top-down organization which means it's really only as good as the top level, and quite frankly, the top isn't very talented. Micron has grown to the point they no longer know what they do best, much like many of the large tech companies, HP to wit. They are languishing and perpetually lagging their foreign competition. The desire to prevail against the competition WAS written on the hearts of every worker. Now, for most, it's just a paycheck. All of the spoils go to the top levels only. The incentive to invent and innovate is gone, beaten out of you by bureaucratic red tape and mid-management egos.
Pros
Boise Idaho

its a good place to work for and they respect you as a human and they have a lot of good classes they give for free but you would always have to have a pickup persons like some lead or supervisor you need to be a friend with to get your back so you can keep your job otherwise you will lose your job, you would need to keep friendship out of work with everybody so you can save your job.
