I fully expect a major layoff announcement to come within the next month, given the industry outlook and ongoing trade war. In the past, has Micron paid any severence to team members who were laid off? I don't mean the fraudulent performance review... — read more
Somebody said in another thread there will be layoffs today. Has this been confirmed?
This round of voluntary early retirement exercise is another laying-off of old guard after last October exercise, after which this CEO took over since 2017. Don’t think this will stop till the last old staff was being chop off. Furthermore, no... — read more
Heard more RIF coming. Targeting people with years of service and age equal to 75 or over. So sad. Hire young people with PHD's and pay them more.
The inside track is that layoffs are scheduled to begin this week. Target audience -the senior crowd. If you are near retirement, micron will honor your retirement benefits early. This is their sneaky way of avoiding the wrath of their dirty play. If... — read more

I'm at the point where I'm hoping and praying to be laid off. Working at Micron has turned from a pleasure years ago into dreading showing up at work each day. I'd quit on my own, but at my age...that's not an easy decision to make. At least being... — read more
Go new Micron!
Does anyone have any regrets leaving this place? Has life been better?
Everybody working here should know this by now. Nobody is safe. And nobody is guaranteed a severance - if that's what people are hoping to get by staying despite everything that's been going on. Start looking for a new job if you know what's best for... — read more
Is it normal not to have received severance more than a month after being laid off?
I was one of them that was over 45 and was given the option to do the PSP or take the severance package. Just wondering if anyone younger had a low rating or did it just applied to the older generation?
Just to let all of the people know that took the severance package just be aware that your supervisor may be blowing smoke up your butt. My supervisor told me that I would be paid 100% of my top time, however, when I received my severance package it... — read more
There was talk about more layoffs before the end of the month - is that still happening?

There was some talk recently that there would be some changes made to severance policy. Does anybody know if something came out of that?
At least when GE used the rank and yank, you had to be rated low 2 consecutive times to be fired. And you were given a year for improvement. Micron's rank and yank is much more harsh. The 90 day option is bogus. They just want the employee to take... — read more
Has anybody heard anything about the ages of the 1's and 2's who got laid off in the 2018 "bell curve performance review"? I received the severance packet this week via fedex. It does not contain any disclosure about ages of people let go. When I got... — read more
