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.

Challenging work and good place to learn
Product Engineer (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDMay 1, 2017
Overall good company ethics. Challenging work and opportunity to move around departments. Not great chances of advancement. Promotions may be over looked. Chain of command is not always the best. Good work environment.

Good people, layoffs are present during industry downturns, work life balance leans towards work.
Process Engineer (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDApril 29, 2017
The people at the facility I worked at were good to work with. While I worked there, the company underwent three separate 'workforce reductions' during rough times. Many very loyal, hard working employees were let go during these 'reductions.' While I worked there, managers were always trying to 'encourage' salaried employees to come in on their off-days to work on improvement projects. It was blatantly stated that if you weren't putting in an additional 5 - 10 hours per week on your off-days, then you wouldn't be eligible for promotion.

Typical day
Manufacturing Technician Trainer (Current Employee) –  Boise, IDApril 18, 2017
A typical day would be coming into work and taking passdown from previous shift. Check for any incoming product and priority lots. Work with a bunch of different people from different cultures. Training people on all sorts of equipment. Read e-mails, answer phones, and instant messages. Take required classes for department. Read procedures and look for any changes that might be needed. Most enjoyable part of job is working with a bunch of diverse people. Learning new tools. Hardest part of the job is working 12 hrs.
Pros
days off
Cons
working 12 hr shifts
