Micron is a great place to work. Work life balance can be tough but up to you and progression is also driven more by you than anyone else.
Director of Operations (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDNovember 17, 2016
Still a great company in the valley and likely unmatched wrt salary ranges in Boise. Success is less driven by the corporate development efforts and more left to individual drive...if you are driven, you can succeed. Very department specific wrt leadership style and culture....many acquisitions, long time managers and lack of corporate discipline here create the variance...that said, everything is what you make of it.
Pros
Boise, salaries, global
Cons
Vision and story can be nebulous, tough industry cycles, leadership is very variable

Diffusion Process Engineering Technician (Former Employee) –  Manassas, VADecember 29, 2016
It's a great place to work. Great benefit. But its a competitive industry so you have to be pro-active. Work shift are 12 hours if you are working in the fabrication floor. You also have to wear full body smock to work on the floor.
Pros
Benefits and vacation time
Cons
Micro management

Great place to work and advance your career
Firmware Validation Engineer (Current Employee) –  Boise, IDSeptember 21, 2016
I work full time more than a year at Micron.

Management is good. Sometimes work-life balance can not be achieved but that is a small issue compared with a lot of good things you will get here.
Pros
Great benefit

Stock went down lately

Company is very innovative and fast paced with cutting edge technology
Engineering Manager (Lead) (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDAugust 18, 2016
Evaluate status of equipment, compare the area priorities to the resources available to me to address each need. Stay on top of each issue ensuring proper resources are in place. observe the techs and engineers performance and ensure they are addressing the daily responsibilities as well as their developmental goals.
I continually learn new solutions to new problems from a technology point of view as well a new skills when working with people.
Management empowers leaders to use individual skills to meet area and department goals. My co-workers are driven to meet area, department, company and personal goals. Having to fire someone is probably the hardest part of the job. Integrating inexperienced new employees into an operational team, identifying their key skills, Then finding specific learning opportunities and mentoring them for success.
Pros
Benefits package
Cons
Typically understaffed

A place where you look forward to go
Operator (Current Employee) –  Boise, IDJuly 7, 2016
The Micron culture of work ethic is amazing . For example the people you get to work with in your team are focused on quality and fast execution of the product. As far as human relations go there has been something very special about the workers at Micron. Everyone is positive and always looking to help each other out. The supervisors most of the time go to bat for their team members.

Once you get rolled over you get great medical and you get 401k. In relation to other entry level jobs in the Treasure Valley Micron is overall competitive.
Pros
Triple pay on holidays for Micron employees, Free Holiday Meals
Cons
shift work meaning 12 hours days or nights

EHS Technician (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDNovember 21, 2016
Benefits are attractive. Compensation is more than adequate. Shift schedule should in theory allow for 4 days off every other week but mandatory overtime was required very regularly. Often given the impression that employees were a burden to management not an asset. Employees are literally reduced to a number.

They treat you like slave labor.
Equipment Support Technician (Current Employee) –  Boise, IDJuly 30, 2016
They don't give out raises, add responsibilities (you basically do the work of 2 or 3 people), they make it hard for you to advance, they lie to you to try to keep you. and morale is horrible. I would suggest you work for a different company if you want to be in the semiconductor field.
Pros
The relationships you build with co-workers.
Cons
Pretty much everything at Micron. Poor managment, how they treat you, and many other things.

Good work life flexibility.
Training is mostly on self-learn web based

Hardest part of the job is dealing with laid off every 3 years, low manpower to continue the work. Reluctant to change
Most enjoyable part is the teamwork with co-worker

Demanding work Environment
Business Process Management Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Manassas, VAJanuary 3, 2017
The semiconductor business is a highly competitive due to the tremendous requirements for quality while keeping productivity as efficient as possible. Tremendous competition from global companies forces the to apply constant improvement pressures on the employees and production equipment. Due to these factors it is a high stress business which can be rewarding to those who are willing to make the sacrifice of time and leisure.
Pros
Free coffee, competative pay, good healthcare
Cons
Highly stressfull work environment.

Consistently busy workplace
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Manassas, VAApril 30, 2016
Typical day at work is gowning up to a cleanroom environment and monitoring tools and wafer production. I quickly learned that every day is not the same and that developing strong troubleshooting skills is a must to determine root causes. This industry is a constantly fluctuating field, as such, being able to overcome changing work hours and management is a must. Co-workers are easy to get along with and I certainly feel like part of a team. The hardest part of the job is (arguably) working night shift, however, this may be the most enjoyable part of the job as it allows for less interruption during the work day.
Pros
Occasional company events, overtime pay (from what I've heard), plenty of paid time-off
Cons
Permanent shift hours, "safety" culture, disconnects between shifts and management

Many health and sports benifits on site. Diversified enviornment.
Lead/Trainer (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDSeptember 24, 2016
Daily duties included overseeing, training, tracking, visual inspection, testing and packaging on the night shift. I learned many computer applications, product detail and testing product.The hardest part of the job was keeping my team productive when the work flow was slow. This was usually resolved by working closely with other areas to find work they could assist with. I enjoyed both the interaction with co-workers and the problem solving to improve or clarify processes.
Pros
Health club on site.
Cons
Very few promotional opportunities.

Principle Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Longmont, CONovember 14, 2016
The talent within this organization is top notch. Most of the interaction are positive and there is plenty of help to go around should you run into roadblocks.

The management seems to be misdirected often enough to make it difficult to feel secure. In the 2 years I was there we were re-directed to 6 different projects. None of them completed.
Pros
Environment, People, projects
Cons
Management direction and commitment to projects

Production Engineer Planner (Current Employee) –  Boise IDJuly 5, 2016

Pros
Great health benefits, incentive pay, and on site gym.
Cons
Work Life Balance, cyclical job industry

Upper management is great to work with and they understand the difficulties and complexities that procurement endures on a day to day basis. My co-workers are great and help support me in any way possible. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting people from all over the world. I believe we have people from over 35 different countries.

A Challenging and Good Paying Career
Silicon Signal Integrity Engineer III (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDSeptember 15, 2016
The work at this large company depends on the department you work in.
Some departments offer ample opportunities for advancement and some don't. This is very much dependent on the type of work. In the fabrication facilities, career opportunities are abundant. In R&D type of work, the career is more focused on technical skills (as to be expected).

Horrible, horrible, horrible. On a good day.
Tech writer (Former Employee) –  Manassas, VAApril 15, 2016
If you love being bullied to think you'll never amount to anything anywhere other than Micron, mandatory overtime with no compensation for it, managers staring at your badge in/out reports instead of the quality of your work, supporting a product line sure to be outmoded any day, wondering about a leveraged buyout from Samsung or some other competitor, and your CEO making racist jokes in front of a very diverse audience, then this is the place for you.
Pros
Good PTO policy
Cons
Too many to list, just stay away

Day at work
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDSeptember 2, 2016
Being on call 24/7 was very stressful and not really rewarding. But when i wasn't being paged on off hours the typical day was pretty good. get into work clean up messes from the previous night talk and work with italian coworkers. Get lunch and then work on projects which included expanding software solutions and making things generally better for everyone.
Pros
Low cost lunches, great benefits
Cons
Off hours required
