Poorly managed
Product Engineer (Former Employee), Boise IDNovember 4, 2014
There is a huge disconnect between upper level management and the workers. Lots of good ideas, but they don't truly get implemented. My boss liked to just kind of ignore me as well.

Hard working people
Specialist (Former Employee), Boise, IDNovember 2, 2014
Pros: exposure to high technology
Cons: lay-offs
Very busy palce to work.

I was exposed to process engineering.

The management was cooperative.

The co-workers were very nice hard working people.

During low production seasons - not enough work to do.

The most enjoyable part of the day is when troubleshooting process issues.

Political BS for everyone, no shortage
Diffusion Senior Technician (Former Employee), Manassas, VAOctober 24, 2014
No raises, excuses galore,sorry supervision. People that got promoted should have never been. No leadership. This company does not want people that will work, they want politicians that BS and don't do a dam thing.

Productive work place with many different cultures
Production Operator (Former Employee), Manassas, VASeptember 19, 2014
Pros: had a caferteria with great food.
Cons: clean suits were a bit unconfortable.
I start my day reporting to work on time. Changing into a clean suit with nothing showing but your eyes. Reporting to your designated work area and do your job in a clean enviroment. Attention to detail is the key to making computer chips. Management is always there if you need them. My co-workers were great everyone did their part in making production – more... on time.The hardest part of the job was waiting for a tool to come back on line after a mechanical failure. The most enjoyabl was socializing with co-workers after our shift was over. – less

OK place to work, management is the biggest problem
Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) Process Engineer (Current Employee), Manassas, VASeptember 4, 2014
Pros: vacation time, 401k matching, stock options, freedom
Cons: out of touch and ineffective management
The biggest issue with Micron is the management. It seems like very few managers know how to actually manage, and because of this a very bottom-up structure has developed. Do not expect any manager to be an expert in the field, they are simply there to make reports for those further up the food chain. Because of this structure, entirely ineffective – more... people can be employed there indefinitely, while someone who is well-qualified but does something upper management doesn't like will be fired.

If you end up with a good manager (i.e. one that leaves you alone), it can be a great place to work with a lot of freedom to pursue projects that interest you.

They do a 401k matching to 5%, and stock options – less

Good and bad
Intern (Current Employee), Boise, IDJune 22, 2014
Pros: low cost of living, good work life balance
Cons: corporate culture, not enough team work
The good: large company that is doing very well. Good place to be for job security.

The bad: Corporate culture. Too much time wasted doing trainings that have nothing to do with job function. There is a pack mentality. Different teams don't really work together but work within themselves. For a tech company, dress code is a bit strict. No shorts or – more... t-shirts. Other silicon valley companies don't have issues with things like that. – less

Motivation, having in mind the benefits receive by the company
Production Operator (Current Employee), Aguadilla, PRJune 18, 2014
Pros: benefits receive by the company in medical, profit, 401k etc.
Cons: noting to say
The last 8 years this was more than a job this place give me the chance to grow in many aspects in my life, but is time to go forward and look to more growing experience and achieve a best future.

A fantastic working environment, so much to learn, and so many ways to grow
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee), Boise, IDJune 11, 2014
Pros: on site cafeteria, health center (gym, dr office).
Cons: long shifts.
The shift always starts with a "passdown" from the previous shift of issues, upcoming problems and efforts needed by the oncoming workers. Then there is emails and machine running statistics that need checked for trending problems. Pages notify of problems needing repaired as they occur, lists of machines that need preventative maintenance that week. – more... Possible engineering experiments that need monitored. The 12 hour shifts actually stay busy most of the shift.

There were classes for further learning on site. Training on new machines from SME (Subject Matter Experts) and new repair procedures that need reviewed and checked for accuracy.

Management is involved and on task. Typically they are approachable and willing to be friendly with employees.

Co-Workers are capable, and from various backgrounds making them interesting to work with over the course of long shifts for half a week. Training is ongoing and constant so there is rarely issues with incapable workers.

Getting used to the shifts are difficult, but once used to no different than other work days, and the benefit becomes long weekends and longer vacation weeks for minimum time off. But the shifts are hard as they cause schedule shifts at home for the employee.

The most enjoyable part of the job is the people and the pay. Workers are interesting, capable and willing to work. The pay is competitive and attractive. – less
