Pros: in boise, accessibility to external activities, personal lifestyle.
Cons: silo'd work environment & hurdles to change positions internally
Within each work areas, Micron is very 'silo'd' and there's not a lot of cross business unit collaboration as each has their own culture. Some areas are better at providing opportunities vs. others. Generally, it's easier to move ahead if you come in from the outside. It's quite challenging and political to move ahead from within the company, although there are some good people that work at Micron. Some of the outsiders that come in struggle to recognize that and tend to hire their buddies from outside into lead positions despite not understanding the products or culture.
